From ESG to D&I


Ireland works hard to keep up: turning necessity into advantage

Client expectations on what Dublin law firms can deliver in ESG and D&I continue to grow. Among acronyms with universal resonance, most large commercial law firms enjoy talking about M&A and IPOs: terms which serve as shorthand for mega deals and huge amounts of capital raising. But in the popularity stakes, they have become overshadowed by two rather different acronyms – ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) and D&I (Diversity and Inclusion). These speak more to a law firm’s values and those of their clients, rather than stock values as measured exclusively by euros, dollars or pounds. But they also provide a lucrative new green workstream. In this context, Ireland is no exception.
