Corrs has a strong track-record of supporting clients with advice on responsible business and ESG, including in relation to corporate governance, sustainable finance and investment, business and human rights, and sustainability and climate change.
As the ESG landscape continues to evolve at a rapid pace both in Australia and globally, we have strengthened our focus and commitment to ESG-related issues through a number of initiatives
Responsible Business and ESG practice group
ESG issues are critical for all business leaders today who are focused on long-term value creation.
The effective management of ESG risks and opportunities is no longer just about ‘doing good’; it is a key business imperative.
Our decision to form a dedicated Responsible Business and ESG practice, which is headed by Dr Phoebe Wynn-Pope, allows us to respond holistically to this business imperative and related client demand for these services.
