Environmental Social and Governance (ESG)

The need for acknowledging and addressing Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) related aspects, has never had more prominence than now. There is a growing recognition of the financial and economic impacts of ESG risks across the globe. ESG is also attaining significance as the investors are increasingly relying on ESG as an important measure to guide their investment decisions. Internationally, regulators and enforcement agencies are taking greater cognizance of ESG related issues and are taking a stringent view of non-compliances or greenwashing by any business regarding their ESG credentials.

Our team at Khaitan Legal Associates (KLA), individually and in collaboration with subject matter experts, demonstrates thought leadership in the world of ESG and advises clients on a comprehensive range of services that include not only traditional ESG aspects but also newer dimensions that are shaping the future of sustainable business practices. Our team supports organisations with the entire spectrum of ESG considerations, starting with identifying risks, encompassing strategic guidance, regulatory compliance, and contractual diligence.

  • Advocacy
