ESG – Environmental, Social and Governance issues are increasingly considered as priorities for companies, investors, clients and suppliers.
Our ESG team has a strong professional experience in managing the broad range of topics that fall under ESG, having a multidisciplinary expertise in climate change law, environmental law, social business enterprise law, cooperation and compliance, among others.
We are able and willing to support our client in the diverse themes which underpin the current and future direction of ESG: from risk assessment and risk management, to supply-chain evaluation, from impact assessment to taxonomy, from regulatory compliance to the drawing of sustainable business practices, in day to day businesses or in extraordinary transactions, our lawyers have been involved in many sides of the topic.
Side by side with companies and investors that have increasingly acknowledged the importance of considering ESG factors in their decision-making processes, emlex ESG department has the capabilities to assist with respect to all ESG related legal aspects. Our ESG practice also looks at issues concerned with companies’ social compliance, such as human rights, diversity and inclusion, and community engagement. We follow the ESG’s holistic approach to social law by considering the impact of a company’s actions on all stakeholders, including employees, customers, suppliers, and the communities in which it operates. We work with clients to help them understand and comply with ESG regulations and standards at EU and Italian level. We would also help clients develop and implement ESG policies and practices that are tailored to their specific needs and objectives. This could include conducting ESG due diligence, advising on ESG disclosures and reporting requirements, and providing guidance on ESG-related disputes and litigation.
Our clients would include companies across a range of industries, as well as investors, regulators, and other stakeholders who are concerned with promoting sustainable and responsible business practices. By working with our clients to prioritise ESG issues, we would help them to mitigate risks, seize opportunities, and create long-term value for all stakeholders.
