The immediate imperative of tackling the global climate and environmental crisis is this generation's defining task. Whether through the European Green Deal, agreements and protocols from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, domestic policy such as the Climate Action Plan and Low Carbon Development (Amendment) Act 2021 or organic response to investor and consumer demands, the next number of years will see climate and ESG transformative policies and requirements affect our clients across all aspects of the economy. The EU's commitment is that no area of the economy will be left untouched and no-one will be left behind.
A&L Goodbody's Climate Action team brings together specialists from across the firm to service our clients in all sectors to help understand and manage the legislative, regulatory and voluntary developments in the climate action and wider ESG space and to also help identify and exploit new opportunities, products and markets which have come about as a result of the climate action and ESG imperative.
