Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)

With environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues now firmly on the corporate agenda, businesses across all sectors are reviewing their approach to sustainability, carbon reduction and social impact.
The mandate for change is supported by a growing number of global investors who want their investments to create positive change as well as profit, and by an increasingly rigorous regulatory imperative in relation to ESG disclosure and risk management.

At Carey Olsen, we support both grassroots projects and global impact investors. We work with asset managers, fund managers, institutional investors, investment banks, private equity houses, family offices, charities, sovereign wealth funds, HNWIs and intermediaries and provide advice on the legal aspects of sustainable investment and its implications on governance and compliance processes. 

Our experience includes advising on green funds, impact funds (both environmental and social), offering documentation, mandate vehicles for family offices and individual clients, corporate structuring, capital raising, policy and practice, sustainable finance transactions (including corporate green loans and bonds, sustainable supply chain financing and renewable energy project financing), intellectual property and dispute resolution services (including board advisory and training).
