Environmental, Social & Governance

Organisations are undergoing a fundamental shift towards a more sustainable way of operating. Legal requirements and expectations of an organisation’s people and external stakeholders are evolving rapidly, and with steadily expanding regulatory requirements it’s easy to forget that progressing your environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals can also bring tangible opportunities.

Your organisation is probably grappling with at least one of these questions on ESG:

  • Are we compliant with the upcoming regulatory requirements in this space?
  • How do we change the way we do things to become a good global citizen?
  • How can we create innovative sources of stakeholder value as part of the shift to a more sustainable future?

Reach out to one of the team to see how we can help you meet your organisation’s ESG goals.

Regulatory compliance

The volume and variety of ESG regulations continues to rapidly increase, covering a wider range of organisational activities aimed at stimulating markets, shifting behaviours, transparency, and monitoring compliance.  Regulations will be increasingly nuanced and prescriptive. Government bodies and regulators will increasingly have more powers and duties to monitor and enforce with some markets creating new regulatory bodies.

We can help you stay on top of the evolving regulatory requirements. 

For the private sector, our expertise includes helping prepare for regulatory changes, manage relationships with regulators and, where possible, help achieve regulatory change or clarification. We advise on business strategy in the light of regulatory requirements and the approaches of regulatory authorities. We also represent clients as defendants, complainants or interveners in regulatory investigations by relevant authorities. With market leading legal and regulatory expertise, we provide creative, timely and pragmatic advice in a public affairs context with our team working at the intersection of politics, bureaucracy, and business reality. 

For the public sector, our expertise includes supporting the creation and implementation of innovative regulation and policy. Where no regulation exists we help market stakeholders to create self-regulation that facilitates market growth.
