Performing well according to ESG criteria has increasingly become an indicator of diligent management for any company, with the potential for long and even short-term financial returns, not to mention reputational benefits.

As the ESG framework starts to be reinforced by even more rigid legal requirements and standards that go beyond those provided for in legislation, the search for legal advice is fundamental to avoiding risks and taking advantage of the opportunities that this new investment and development environment presents.

We assist our clients to improve or adapt to ESG practices, which enables them to stay one step ahead in this ever-evolving landscape.
