Is your Firm a source of Sustainable Value Creation, or Risk Mitigation for your Clients?

Sustainability & ESG

The dramatic acceleration of macro trends has placed Stakeholder Capitalism, Sustainability and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues top of investor, corporate board, General Counsel and legal provider agenda.

For business today it means creating, sustaining, and protecting long term value and impact that is ethical and responsible to, and for, its current and future material stakeholders – and achieving a ‘Triple Bottom Line’ for People, Planet & Profit.

This brings progressive firms, both great business opportunities and responsibilities.

Whilst Sustainability & ESG has attracted increasing attention, a key challenge is that industry sectors and businesses vary widely in their definitions of their most material needs, risks and expectations. Consequently, it is hard for firms to assess the most material way in which they can strategically assist clients and prioritise and build their own unique differentiating ESG capabilities.

Competition is also increasing, with more law firms and other advisors entering this space, seeking to build market position. At the same time the media and stakeholder spotlight is shifting to law firms, holding them to account for their own Responsible Business approach.
