ESG issues are becoming increasingly important nowadays in investment decision-making. The way a company handles certain environmental, social and governance issues can have a major impact on its long-term performance and its valuation.

More and more examples underline that

  1. ESG issues can affect bid prices and exit valuations,
  2. ESG issues can carry significant financial risks,
  3. An ESG corporate approach and performance can contribute to the medium-term success of a transaction, and positively influence financial performance.

As a result there is a growing demand for ESG due diligence, in addition to the usual financial, tax and legal due diligence tasks.

Our services offered as part of an ESG due diligence:

  • Overview of how emerging environmental and social trends are likely to affect the company and its market.
  • Comprehensive analysis of the company’s material ESG risks, liabilities and opportunities.
  • Assessment of compliance with national regulations and international conventions.
  • Benchmarking of the company’s ESG policies, processes and performance against industry best practice and peers.
  • Estimating the impact of potential liabilities on future expenses, cash flows and the deal timeline.
  • Recommendations on adjustments to the valuation.
  • Proposals on how to address the individual risks identified in the SPA.
