Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)

Designed to create and protect sustainable growth, our advisors provide invaluable advice and guidance across sectors.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is a movement that is growing rapidly, and one which now impacts on virtually every sector.

In our clients’ worlds, effective ESG strategy refers to the long-term sustainability (and success) of an organisation. How a company interacts with, and the attitude they show towards, the environment, wider society and decision-making influences the likelihood of their future successes. In short, a comprehensive and forward-thinking ESG policy is how a company does good, and they are rewarded for doing so. It is, in its most basic form, a win-win situation.

Womble Bond Dickinson’s ESG strategy team has a robust and thorough understanding of the complexities behind these policies, as well as the wider industry expectations which underpin the market standard for what 'good' looks like. This combined knowledge puts us in perfect standing for providing industry-leading ESG consulting services to all our clients.

Our team of environmental, social and governance advisors are capable of supporting our clients in the design and pursuit of business strategies which are impacted by the vast array of issues that fall under the ESG umbrella. Environmental issues, such as climate change and the protection of natural resources are considered, alongside more social factors including equality, diversity and inclusion, safeguarding, modern slavery, data protection, executive compensation, risk management and operational hygiene factors.

No matter your industry of operation, the size of your company or your future goals, our ESG strategy services are available to support, protect and help create your company's sustainable growth.
