Social / Human rights

Back to ESG – Environmental, social and governance

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategies often concentrate more on environmental issues. However, social factors are increasingly important, with a growing demand for more transparency from investors and customers.

Ethical and sustainable relationships with employees, suppliers, customers and the communities in which businesses operate, are a crucial factor for their overall success.

At CMS Grau, our multi-disciplinary team can advise you on managing your key stakeholder relationships in a socially responsible way.

Our specialist lawyers from around the world combine their knowledge of local law with an international perspective to provide you with comprehensive advice to ensure that you fulfil the ESG standards.

Our experts advise on a wide range of social matters, for example on the environmental and human rights aspects of supply chains; safe, modern and sustainable employment conditions; diversity & inclusion in the workplace and compliant internal reporting channels (whistleblowing). They also work closely with clients that are transforming and restructuring their corporate and operational structures to become more sustainable.

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