Understanding your environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks has moved from “nice to know” to “need to know” as a growing body of businesses, investors, and advisors integrate ESG issues into their decision-making processes. This year has shone a spotlight on diversity, climate change, and income inequality and how businesses are managing and responding to these ESG issues. Within the context of M&A activity, ESG is gaining traction in the evaluation of potential targets, as buyers look to understand whether targets have identified their material ESG issues, whether they have programs in place to manage them, and whether they have current or future ESG risks that buyers need to be aware of before acquisition.
You’re invited to view our on-demand webinar, Evaluating ESG Risks in M&A Transactions, where you will gain insight into the current landscape and best practices for evaluating ESG risks. You will walk away with a clear roadmap to guide you in making informed decisions on ESG issues in your M&A transactions.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- How to evaluate the ESG risks associated with a prospective target
- How to factor the risks into your financial modeling when performing a valuation and making a go/no-go decision on an acquisition
- What tools and frameworks are available - some qualitative, some quantitative, and some just talk
