Sustainability: An Increasingly Important Driver of Business Strategy

We are witnessing a massive "once in a lifetime" paradigm change in the way global business operates. For all – regulators , governments, policy makers, the private sector, investors and financiers – the UN Sustainable Development Goals and, in particular, climate change considerations have moved rapidly from the margins to the very heart of decision making.

With the goal of playing a more critical role in achieving a greener and cleaner economy, and having access to additional capital markets to develop green energy projects and diversify into green investment portfolios – institutional investors, lenders and the largest global corporates are moving to champion sustainability, and adapt their business strategies as a result.

As part of Baker McKenzie’s commitment to sustainability and leading market experience on this global trend, we are proud to leverage our talent, innovation and relationships to make a positive and sustainable societal impact, and partner with our clients to help them execute their sustainability investments and strategy.

Combining Baker McKenzie's world-leading Clean Energy and Climate Change Practice with our creativity and understanding of this trend to our clients’ business, we are superbly placed to jointly lead this momentous paradigm shift in doing business with our clients.
