Sustainability: An Increasingly Important Driver of Business Strategy
We are in the midst of a 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 growing global recognition of the importance of these environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations in financial markets, we are witnessing a notable shift in the approach taken by policy makers and industry players. This shift opens up new opportunities, but also new challenges for market participants navigating the ever-evolving sustainability ecosystem.
As a pioneer in climate and sustainability for more than 20 years, Baker McKenzie is the global leader in sustainable finance. As part of Baker McKenzie’s commitment to sustainability and leading market experience in this growing area, we are proud to leverage our talent, innovation and relationships to make a positive and sustainable societal impact, and partner with our clients from a variety of industries to help them execute their sustainability investments and strategy.
