Mayer Brown formalizes its commitment to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives, adopting the principles set out in the Statement of Responsible Business (link below).
“To counsel our clients on ESG matters, we recognize that we must have our own house in good order,” said Jeremy Clay, managing partner of Mayer Brown. “While we have previously adopted a number of ESG principles in running our business, formalizing our own commitment to these principles will help us to ensure that they are applied uniformly across our global platform.”
Mayer Brown advises clients on a wide range of ESG matters, including policy and regulatory change and development, disclosure and reporting obligations, disputes and regulatory enforcement, climate change and transition, business and human rights, diversity and inclusion, sustainable finance and responsible investment, among many others. In addition, the firm continues to embed, and has already incorporated, ESG principles into its internal practices, programs and commitments, particularly with respect to its robust pro bono and diversity initiatives – including, for example, Project Equity, which was launched in 2020 after the killing of George Floyd.
