ESG Due Diligence
An ESG Due Diligence is aimed at identifying significant sustainability risks associated with the target company’s operations and assessing the company’s governance and opportunities within the ESG area. Our ESG review involves evaluating the target company’s compliance with international and national laws, frameworks and guidelines.
Our ESG Due Diligence is tailored to the target company’s operations and always includes the following material sustainability areas: human rights, labour rights, environment and anti-corruption. Our review includes a desktop analysis, Q&A, dialogue with management and key personnel, and, if necessary, a site visit.
