To buy, or not to buy? That is the question. As sustainability practices become progressively more essential to conscious investors and stakeholders, companies and businesses are increasingly inspecting the sustainability practices of companies in merger and acquisition transactions. Leading panelists will explore sustainability practices as a function of environmental due diligence within mergers and acquisitions, and how these practices are timely and relevant for investors, public perception, and stakeholders looking at companies or businesses. Through holistically examining existing sustainability practices encompassing a variety of sustainability programs – carbon footprint reductions, energy efficiency, recycling and waste reduction programs, efforts towards closed loop systems, among others – this seminar will provide an in-depth discussion on the scope and impact of these sustainability practices within merger and acquisition proceedings.
Join ELI and expert panelists representing legal, corporate, and financial sectors for an in-depth exploration on the sustainability components that are or have potential to be valuable in the mergers and acquisitions processes. Additionally, panelists will examine the obstacles and opportunities that companies face when determining disclosure about sustainability practices and how these facets impact environmental finance and law more broadly.
This event is part of the Climate Finance, Investment and Carbon Pricing program of Climate Week NYC.
