NHG announces the launch of its “Sustainable Transition/ESG” working group
Nader, Hayaux & Goebel (NHG) is pleased to announce the launch of its “Sustainable Transition/ESG” working group advising its clients on their transition to a sustainable and regenerative economy and in the adoption and integration of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) criteria in their operations and investment decisions; becoming the first Mexican law firm to offer this comprehensive services.
NHG has a highly specialised and committed working group providing comprehensive advise to its clients to operate under sustainable development principles that contribute to the creation and management of socially inclusive, economically fair and environmentally responsible businesses.
We are living unprecedented times in the history of humanity, facing new systemic global risks arising, among others, from the climate emergency with the challenge to make strategic decisions to move towards business models that go beyond merely achieving the economic profits required to make them sustainable, but that achieve this while taking into account their social and environmental impact, and articulate a clear purpose to make this world a better place for us all.
Business decisions have a significant impact on climate change, increasing the risks and opportunities for companies that address properly not only the physical risks arising from the climate emergency, but also other risks such as the legal, regulatory and systemic changes arising from the climate emergency we are currently facing.
ESG principles refer to environmental, social and corporate governance matters and how these are integrated into the company to promote its social, economic and financial development, without harming anyone.
The path for each company to adequately address organisational changes needed to contribute to an efficient transition towards a regenerative economy is complex and requires specialised legal advice in those areas in which NHG enjoys an unrivalled reputation in the Mexican market.
With presence in Mexico City and London, NHG offers flexibility, innovation and leadership to develop a legal and regulatory strategy to create innovative products that promote green and sustainable finance, and to adopt and apply ESG standards in their investment, develop economic models under principles of a circular and regenerative economy, and implement climate governance principles in boards of directors.
“Today, any company has the opportunity to modify its business structures and move towards new sustainable and regenerative models by applying, among others, ESG principles. Those that manage to transition and implement their new business strategies will be able to resiliently face the risks inherent to the climate emergency while maintaining a good financial performance and expanding their impact for the benefit of the entire community, without harming anyone,” said Ana Paula Telleria, Partner at NHG.
NHG is ideally positioned to accompany its clients in their transition process, assessing risks, identifying opportunities and adapting their operations to the legal and regulatory framework under ESG principles, aligned with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) because it has expertise in all the areas of practice required to achieve the foregoing, with committed partners and lawyers with proven experience, able to innovate and find creative and simple solutions to the most complex problems.
“We are aware of the urgent need to reduce our carbon footprint, directly and indirectly, and we are committed to providing our clients with our combined experience, talent, vision and passion to address the risks inherent to this climate emergency, make those changes required in order that their businesses operate sustainably and accompany them in their transition to a regenerative economy,” said Yves Hayaux du Tilly, Partner at NHG.
To ensure the efficiency of our services, we collaborate with Mexican and international experts designing and implementing legal instruments and actions within the Mexican legal framework. In addition, we have developed strong relationships with academic institutions, government agencies and research centres specialised in the field, with whom we work, analysing each case individually and providing efficient short and long term solutions.
