ESG and Sustainability
Prioritizing environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues and sustainability has become paramount for companies across different industries. Companies are grappling with new and evolving needs and expectations regarding ESG, conveyed by shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers, regulators and the community in general, as well as rating agencies and standard setters.
The 2016 Paris Agreement on climate change and the United Nations 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals have resulted in the introduction of various legislative measures globally, including transparency and reporting requirements for market participants and corporations, and the integration of sustainability considerations into financial markets.
This decade is expected to be dominated by the transition to a more sustainable economy, with policy programs and regulations increasingly focusing on sustainability. To assist with navigating the numerous regulatory and policy initiatives, Cuatrecasas ESG Focus Group and its Knowledge and Innovation team have compiled the firm’s expertise on sustainability and ESG in one single place.
