Climate Change and ESG

As the climate change regulatory framework continues to grow, so does our support and practice in the field of climate and ESG regulations.  Our legal services range from compliance and transactions under the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) to assisting our clients in their efforts on the path to carbon neutrality, whether it is related to the new circular products economy or the reduction of the carbon footprint of an entire organization or business unit.

We can guide your business as it aims to respond to the risks and regulations associated with climate change, especially in the days when building a sustainable portfolio of investments has transitioned from a corporate objective to regulatory one. We understand that businesses are coming under increasing pressure to implement strategies and fit into the new model of “a net zero emissions economy”.
