ESG for our clients
A clear ESG strategy is no longer a nice to have; it is a basic business imperative that is high on the agenda of investment committees, finance providers and indeed all stakeholders, internal and external.
With this in mind, Clairfield was early in establishing a dedicated ESG practice group, which has become a valuable source of knowledge and indeed inspiration for both our clients and ourselves.
With tailored ESG toolkits, the group informs our advice to clients on transformational change to business models, and is founded on a clear philosophy: ESG is not a burden or a risk-management exercise. Rather, it is an exciting source of opportunity.
Over nearly two decades of advising our clients on growth, financing and strategy, one of the most significant developments has been the emergence of environment, social and governance (ESG).
ESG touches every area of how you operate your business now, where you might take it next, and with whom. For this reason, our dedicated ESG practice group comprises highly experienced advisers with significant ESG accreditations.
The group provides skilled navigation and strategic input, advising clients and our deal teams on transformational questions around business model-change and risk. This counsel also extends to preparing for strategic sell-side or buy-side M&A: whether assessing your supply chains, divesting non-sustainable businesses, ESG due diligence for acquisitions, and ESG investment cases for disposals.
