A new landscape for the future

The environment and contributing to a more sustainable world is important to how we advise our clients and manage our business.

Strategy in action

Lifescape and prioritising conservation

This year, the firm has made significant strides to environmental harms through 'home-grown' charity Lifescape, which seeks to balance the human impact on the natural world and allow nature to recover. Many of our people are increasingly passionate about protecting the environment and look for new ways to make an impact. Lifescape serves as a conduit to achieving meaningful results and continues to encourage people, at all levels of the firm, to get involved.

The growth of ESG in Latin America

"As a member of the firm's global ESG Board, I'm seeing first-hand the increasing appetite for ESG-related investment opportunities worldwide. Latin America is no exception to the rule. We've been helping our clients to not only comply with ESG-related obligations, but develop best practices in the field, and capitalise on ESG value creation opportunities. It's a fascinating time for the Latin America region, with some really exciting projects and new policies around ESG emerging."
