Debevoise Serves as Editor of and Contributes Three Chapters to Inaugural ESG Comparative Guide, Published by Global Legal Post

16 March 2023

Debevoise & Plimpton LLP has edited a new publication in the Law Over Borders series published by Global Legal Post, focused on key environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) regulatory developments across 18 jurisdictions.

The guide includes insights from local counsel around the world on a series of specific ESG issues, structured using a consistent format that enables readers to quickly compare the approaches of different jurisdictions.

In addition to editing the guide, the Debevoise team contributed chapters on the United States, Germany and the European Union.

“The GLP guide comes at a time of significant transition in the world of ESG,” says Ulysses Smith, ESG Senior Advisor at Debevoise. “Even as ESG becomes increasingly a matter of hard law and regulation, political and policy objectives, voluntary frameworks, and the expectations of shareholders and investors all continue to drive developments. The guide aims to be a practical tool for businesses and their advisers to understand the many facets of ESG in key jurisdictions around the world.” /p>

This new guide is intended as a practical resource for any organization aiming to navigate these important issues. The guide focuses on critical legal developments that businesses and those who advise them need to be aware of, as well as non-legal drivers of ESG that also shape the business environment.
