ESG and Sustainability

Recently, domestic and international rules and guidelines on ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) and sustainability have been rapidly established, and investments and loans that take ESG factors into consideration have been swiftly increasing. In line with these trends, it has been pointed out that Japanese companies should promote ESG-related risk management, create profit opportunities, and properly disclose such efforts to be highly evaluated in the stock market and obtain more sustainability-conscious financing, as well as enhance the competitiveness of their businesses.

Our firm provides a full range of consultation services for the issues faced by companies in all aspects of ESG and sustainability-related matters in normal times and in emergencies, including handling shareholder relations, disclosing information, responding to business and human rights' concerns, providing advice on sustainable finance, and handling environmental disputes and scandals, taking into account the latest information on ESG and sustainability, which is constantly being updated. Our dedicated ESG team works with attorneys who have extensive knowledge and experience in their respective areas of expertise to provide appropriate legal advice in accordance with each company's situation.
