    The Team

We know that Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) are an important aspect of growth, profit, and reshaping business. Whether the focus is on shaping sustainable investment strategies, realizing value through the implementation of sustainable transformation strategies to drive shareholder and broader stakeholder value, or proactively assessing ESG risks as part of due diligence, we support clients end-to-end.

Our Sustainability M&A Consulting Services team focuses on embedding Sustainability across the deal cycle - including ESG-led fund and portfolio level strategy development, assessment of deal targets with strategic Sustainability due diligence, post-transaction implementation of Sustainability strategy and initiatives, and supporting the articulation of Sustainability - Climate & Equity driven value creation upon exit.
