Environmental, Social and Governance ("ESG")

Investors are increasingly placing sustainability objectives at the centre of their investment policy and matrix. The traditional focus on value creation is increasingly accompanied by the search for solutions that have a positive impact on the planet and on society.

There is now growing pressure on listed companies to consider a set of interests that go beyond the maximisation of shareholder profit and are framed at environmental, social and governance (ESG) level.

On the one hand, this new situation creates a set of additional risks of a complex nature that may result in substantial negative impacts. On the other hand, it presents an opportunity to differentiate ourselves from our competitors through leadership in the various ESG areas.

Working in close cooperation with the Responsible Business practice, our team has the expertise to be the ideal partner to navigate a landscape of increasing pressure from investors, consumers, employees, and government bodies themselves to meet the challenges faced at this level.

We assist our clients with:

  • Issuance of green bonds, sustainability linked bonds and transition bonds
  • Setting up social entrepreneurship companies and funds and assisting in their impact investments
  • Setting up collective investment undertakings with investment policies that include ESG criteria
  • Compliance programmes
  • Internal procedures, including codes of ethics and conduct
  • Review of compliance programmes and internal culture
  • Analysis of situations of conflicts of interest and establishment of remedial programmes
  • Corporate governance due diligence
