Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations are increasingly high priorities for global businesses as ESG factors and regulations become more prevalent and stakeholder expectations increase globally. Mayer Brown has a strong track record in helping clients around the world address ESG issues. Recognizing the importance of ESG principles to its clients, Mayer Brown also has a core commitment to engaging in responsible business practices in its day-to-day operations, including with respect to ESG, as articulated below.

At Mayer Brown, we provide our clients with market-leading advice that enables them to navigate complex, broad-ranging and rapidly evolving ESG issues in an increasingly connected, global business environment. At the same time, we are equally committed to conducting our own business in a manner that aligns with the ESG principles described below. It is the right thing to do.


Our diverse team of lawyers is experienced and well-equipped to advise businesses on the steps necessary to address the concerns of investors and other stakeholders increasingly looking for and expecting socially responsible corporate behavior. We understand that incorporating ESG into a company's business plan creates value, enhances social license to operate and reduces reputational risks. Our team comprises lawyers in a wide range of disciplines, including corporate, environmental, human rights, litigation, government relations, financial services, finance and trade, and provides integrated advice addressing the range of ESG risks and opportunities.

We work with our global clients to devise holistic frameworks and response strategies on emerging issues, such as climate change and transition, human rights compliance, sustainability and diversity to address the evolving range of ESG-related requirements and expectations. We also regularly advise on and structure sustainable finance and responsible investment transactions such as green bonds, development investing and social repo transactions and represent clients in ESG-related litigation.
