ESG isn’t a new concept, but it’s something that lots of businesses are still grappling with. It spans a huge breadth of topics, and probably touches on most functions. Increasingly, it’s the legal team that’s tasked with managing it.
A strong ESG proposition is critical across the business. Whether creating value, managing your brand, or managing risks, most of us are building it into our strategies and operations. But it moves at pace. ESG litigation, regulatory changes, ‘greenwashing’ claims, societal norms shifting – it’s a whole new area for your team to keep on top of.
We can pull together a multi-disciplinary team to work with you. We’ll include people from diverse teams such as Regulatory & Compliance, Environment, Energy, Employment or Corporate. They’ll get to grips with your business’ current position, goals, drivers – and the level your team is, or wants to be, involved.
Our team will make sure that you meet societal and investor expectations and mitigate any lurking risks. As those expectations and risks shift, your Walker Morris ESG team will too. The team will be dynamic, and we’ll involve the right people in our work with you at the right time. They can support you on:
- Environment and biodiversity.
- Sustainable finance.
- Crisis management.
- ESG disputes.
- People and diversity.
- Corporate advisory and guidance.
- Tax and ESG.
