Resource aims to “help companies around the world transition to and thrive in a more sustainable future”
DLA Piper has launched a global online environmental, social, and governance (ESG) portal to “help companies around the world transition to and thrive in a more sustainable future.”
The portal provides views and insights of sustainability and ESG-related topics from thought leaders around the world.
According to DLA Piper, the portal provides direct, online access to sector-curated publications, insights, and thought leadership resources that address the global social, environmental, governance, and workplace diversity issues clients are facing.
“These resources are designed to guide clients through both ESG-specific risks and new market opportunities, as well as support the creation and maintenance of robust ESG programs,” the firm said in a statement.
“Businesses are focused on enhancing sustainable strategies and navigating the transition to a low-carbon economy, and our aim is to assist them in the process of confronting the complex strategic, legal, financial, and operational sustainability and ESG opportunities,” said John J. Gilluly III, US head of the sustainability and the ESG task force at DLA Piper. “We hope that providing this information will help companies create value over the long term in alignment with the sustainability and ESG topics relevant to their sector and business.”
“As a firm, we understand that clients operating in different sectors face unique sustainability and ESG opportunities and challenges,” said Ann Ford, global co-chair of sectors at DLA Piper. “Our proactive, sector-based approach to guidance is intended to assist clients globally as they navigate the myriad of sustainability and ESG topics impacting their businesses. We are pleased to leverage our impressive array of experience with clients around the world, coupled with our own commitment to these topics, to provide sustainability and ESG guidance to help companies grow and thrive.”
