ESG and Sustainability

The concern for the care of our environment, the social impact, the governance and the effects of human activities are an essential part of today’s agenda. For some time we have been guiding our clients based on the new challenges and needs that require them to refocus and/or adapt processes, practices and outlooks around friendlier and more responsible ways with the environment, but without neglecting the social aspects and impact investment, that are the cornerstone of development. In this sense, the evolution of the traditional concept of environmental law towards a comprehensive, comprehensive and all-encompassing look, has decided us to integrate corporate sustainability as a paradigm for our environmental practice, in the conviction that solid assistance will be increasingly required to walk this path together with our clients.

In terms of sustainability, prevention is a priority. We can help our clients address the concerns and manage the environmental, social and governance performance risks that affect their long-term sustainability, combining in-depth knowledge of global policy trends and the myriad of national and international standards. We bring together lawyers who are uniquely qualified to help you with all types of sustainability issues specific to your sector, whether you are an investor, an NGO or a government agency.

Our extensive experience with clients in the extractives and industrial sector includes business and human rights issues, anti-corruption and corporate governance issues, social license to operate, climate change and renewable energy, cutting across many of our practice areas.

Among the advice we can provide to our clients, we include:

  • Advice on compliance with Argentine environmental legislation, including obtaining permits, compliance and environmental legal audits, implementation of management systems and advice on risk management and environmental liabilities.
  • Conducting environmental due diligence for mergers and acquisitions transactions, project finance and public offerings, among others.
