Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC)

Law Firm in the Netherlands specialised in Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC)

Back to ESG - Environmental, Social & Governance

Companies across all sectors and of all sizes are facing increasing pressure from investors, customers and regulators to comply with environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria. This means, doing business ethically, sustainably and in an environmentally-friendly way. Risks that arise from non-compliance can lead to significant legal, reputational and financial consequences.

Whatever your risks, you need to deal with them in ways that build your resilience and protect your reputation. At CMS, our global sustainability team can support you whenever and wherever you need us.

Our lawyers act as strategic advisers to our clients on the broadest possible spectrum of commercial and legal risk in large and profitable contentious, regulatory and transactional matters.

We have in-depth knowledge of the real-world implications of ESG and the practical issues which are faced by businesses arising out of the sustainability development agenda, supply chain issues, business ethics, social justice concerns, employment practices and board diversity and accountability.

Our teams span a number of key practice areas, including financial crime, employment, financial services enforcement, competition, data protection, health and safety, environment, sanctions and professional and clinical risks.

Please contact any of our ESG lawyers to explore solutions to your needs.
