Expertise – ESG & Carbon
ESG & Carbon Credits
Navigating the frontier of the Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) issues is key for any business of today and in the future. ESG encompasses a wide range of issues that businesses must address to operate responsibly and sustainably. We assist clients to understand the nascent ESG market, assess their current practices, advise on the regulatory framework and implement policies and procedures that align with their sustainability goals. From best practices in corporate governance, to assessing carbon emissions and understanding social governance issues such as compliance with modern slavery legislation, we help businesses to assess not just their own practices but also also that of their supply chains, often cutting across different jurisdictions.
Drawing from our experience in commodities trading, we advise clients on the intricacies of the voluntary carbon markets and in particular, the risks and prudent assessments needed in participating in carbon projects and the purchase of carbon credits in conjunction with overriding objectives of reducing a company’s carbon footprint.
