Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Solutions
Historically, Kilpatrick Townsend has advised clients on environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) issues through established practices in environmental and energy, corporate governance, government enforcement and investigations, and other well-established teams. Kilpatrick Townsend now provides an integrated ESG service offering to further assist our clients in developing an ESG program that will help them design, implement, monitor and improve ESG initiatives and efforts.
Kilpatrick Townsend is not only positioned to assist clients with complying with existing laws, regulations and contractual obligations, but has the insight to provide strategic, forward-looking advice to assist clients in implementing practical solutions to navigate the complex, evolving nature of ESG obligations and risks. We understand that not all ESG topics are relevant or material to every company, and that there is no “one size fits all” answer. We use a risk-based, cost-effective, and tailored approach so clients can address ESG issues according to their needs, no matter where they are in their ESG journey.
With relationships and experience working with top technical experts, our integrated, collaborative, and multidisciplinary team is well-positioned to assist clients to develop ESG strategies to reduce risk, ensure compliance, protect their reputation and brand, enhance resiliency, and achieve long-term profitability and value creation.
