Lawyers for Sustainable Finance

With the Green Deal, the EU has set itself the ambitious goal of becoming the world's first climate-neutral economy by 2050. Achieving this goal involves considerable investments - for example in new infrastructures, the transformation of former key industries and numerous environmental projects. Accordingly, the financial sector will play a key role as well.

Our banking and finance law experts at CMS integrated the topic of sustainable finance into their advice to companies at an early stage of the development towards more sustainability in society and the economy. Accordingly, our lawyers specialising in sustainable finance have in-depth market knowledge on sustainable investments in a wide range of industries. They are experienced in launching green financial products, such as green bonds, and continuously advise companies on arranging the right financing for their various projects around sustainable products and services. 

The advice provided by our sustainable finance lawyers integrates the know-how of financing experts and regulatory lawyers, but also competition law, environmental, planning and tax lawyers. In doing so, we combine tried and trusted legal knowledge with specific knowledge of the current standards in the area of sustainable financing. Thus, we are very familiar with the taxonomy for sustainable economic activities in EU law, sustainable disclosure obligations under the Disclosure Regulation and the Benchmark Regulation with regard to the EU reference values for climate-induced change.
