Stakeholders have made clear that corporate responsibility is not just a fad or a slogan. With increasing data showing that sustainable investing opportunities can mitigate risk and deliver strong returns, environmental, social, and governance has quickly become an integral part of a company’s reporting and a significant factor in successful business deals.
Schiff Hardin today launched its new ESG team to help companies develop appropriate disclosures and institutional programs that incorporate ESG principles, including climate change, supply chain resiliency/disruption, water use, waste and recycling, environmental and energy justice, human rights, diversity, equity and inclusion, board composition, executive compensation, and anti-corruption.
The team will advise clients on legal ramifications and disclosure obligations, conduct internal investigations and represent clients in matters of wrongdoing, counsel on various ESG metrics used by lenders and investors, and evaluate litigation, insurability, and other risks posed by ESG issues.
