The legal and regulatory landscapes on environmental, social and governance issues constantly evolve. Businesses, their contracting parties, investors and employees, both in Turkey and around the world, are forced to keep up with these changes and a growing number of them incorporate ESG criteria into their investment assessments, contracts and business operations. In this respect, recent regulations and developments in the US, the EU and in Turkey create a stronger need for Turkish businesses to learn and adapt ESG initiatives in an expedient manner and ESG is now becoming a complex form of corporate governance involving significant legal issues. Since many businesses are at different stages with respect to their ESG progress, a tailored advice is necessary.
In this respect, our ESG department provides a wide-range of services to assist our clients fulfilling their corporate ESG commitments and progress, including ESG Legal Due Diligence, ESG Compliance, ESG Trainings, Employment Advice and Planning, ESG Reporting and Disclosures, Green Financing, Data Privacy, Greenwashing, Whistle Blower Actions, Anti-bribery and Corruption, Product Governancy and Shareholder Disputes.
