EHS / ESG support of transactions and investment projects

Assessing financial, legal, tax and technical risks and liabilities is a standard practice for many companies in mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, IPOs or project finance. At the same time, non-technical risks, such as environmental and social, are not always given due attention

Meanwhile, research shows that:

90% of all financial transactions are accompanied by a whole range of risks and obligations associated with EHS/ESG issues
EHS/ESG factors can increase or decrease the value of an asset by an average of 10-30%
EHS/ESG issues remain underestimated in 75% of transactions
20% of transaction agreements are not concluded due to significant EHS/ESG-related risks and liabilities identified during the due diligence process
