The world, and the context business operates in, is constantly evolving. This influences not only the way we do business, but the way society, industry and regulators expect business to be done.
The capacity of a variety of stakeholders to have an immediate and powerful impact on a business’s value and success is increasing, and short-term shareholder value is no longer the only measure of business performance. Instead, we are witnessing markets move from shareholder capitalism to stakeholder capitalism. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations are increasingly important for companies wanting to attract the best people, maximise investment and expand their customer base in order to thrive.
When executed effectively, a commitment to conducting business responsibly enables businesses to seize the long-term opportunities presented by our rapidly evolving corporate landscape. Our responsible business and ESG practice offers integrated expertise on environmental, social and governance decision-making across four key areas:
- Corporate Governance
- Sustainable Finance and Investment
- Business and Human Rights
- Sustainability and Climate Change
