ESG has become a very high priority for companies and is also an issue for the legal department. More and more legislation has to be observed in this context. But business partners and customers are also paying more and more attention to sustainability aspects. Therefore, companies should establish a long-term ESG strategy, which should also be co-directed by the legal department. Because in-house lawyers have an eye on the legal stumbling blocks in relation to ESG.
How should legal departments be positioned in terms of ESG and what exactly can they do to make their company successful in terms of ESG? KPMG Law advises legal departments on how to strategically position themselves to be a valuable partner to your company as it moves into the future.
