Environmental, Sustainability, Social, and Governance (ESSG)

Our environment and sustainable investments practice provides multidisciplinary advice concerning issues related to environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts, in order to ensure sustainability, a pivotal element of modern business. We support our clients as they integrate ESG criteria and provisions to their corporate structure, as well as in documents required by local authorities or those to be submitted to third parties. In addition to guaranteeing compliance with environmental regulations, we also represent our clients in administrative proceedings and throughout litigation. 

The firm provides advice in the areas of power, electricity, renewables and alternative energy, and oil and gas. Our lawyers represent clients in the financing, construction, operation, acquisition, and disposition of infrastructure and energy projects. Furthermore, our practice approaches a broad range of environmental issues, including transactions, litigation, and regulatory proceedings. Additionally, we work hand in hand with organizations interested in implementing ESG policies and strategies, adapted to the particular requirements of each of our clients, ensuring a balance between financial objectives and the management of environmental and operational risks. 

We work with our clients to implement the various guidelines, initiatives, methodologies, and measurement tools related to environmental and social issues, including the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), the World Bank's Operating Principles for Impact Management and the Association of Investment Companies (AIC) Guidelines for Responsible Investment. We support organizations in obtaining environmental permits and in complying with the standards set for sensitive sectors such as oil and gas or mining, among others. Examples of the latter are the guidelines of the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the provisions established by the World Bank.

For those clients interested in undertaking high-impact investment strategies via the appropriate financing vehicles, we have a team dedicated to venture capitalists and private equity funds established for these initiatives. Our multidisciplinary team assists impact investors by developing customized initiatives and structuring investments to meet the philanthropic objectives of private equity funds, family offices, and nonprofit entities. With the objective of enhancing the outcomes of our clients we also maximize the use of tax efficiencies and available legal benefits.
