Get an overview of our legal expertise in relation to environmental, social and governance.

Our CEE-wide expertise across several legal areas and industries allows our teams to advise on all environmental, social and governance related questions and challenges. Over the past years, our experts have been guiding clients on an increasing number of ESG-related matters, litigations and transactions, with a particularly strong focus on energy, environment, (social) infrastructure and public law, corporate governance (including stakeholder activism), CSR, finance and regulatory issues, including advertising clearance and litigation as well as registration and enforcement of certification marks.

  • on a wide range of international and domestic energy matters, including energy transition projects (primarily renewable projects), "green" transactions and large development projects;
  • on innovative projects such as "floating" solar plants, geothermal projects, electrolysers for the production of green hydrogen;
  • clients on innovative waste management strategies aimed at preventing, mitigating and recycling operational waste flows;
  • stakeholder associations (such as chambers of commerce) on the improvement of environmental and energy efficiency legislation;
  • domestic and international clients on compliance with environmental law and ESG requirements;

Sustainability-linked loans and green finance developments in Poland

Greater interest in ESG and the energy transition may be observed recently throughout Europe, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russian aggression against Ukraine.

As banks are one of the most important sources of external financing, they play a significant role in the transformation to a sustainable economy and can contribute towards mitigating adverse effects on the environment and society by key players in the global economy.

Unpacking the EU Nature Restoration Law

The draft of the Nature Restoration Law (NRL) unveiled by the EU Commission in 2022 and narrowly approved by the EU Parliament in July 2023, has been met with both enthusiasm and controversy. It sets lofty objectives for the Member States to restore ecosystems, supporting the unionwide and long-term sustainable recovery of biodiversity and nature's resilience. To achieve this, the NRL aims to establish binding restoration targets and obligations for various ecosystems. By 2030, these measures should cover at least 20 % of the Union's land and sea areas and extend to all ecosystems "requiring restoration" by 2050. To meet these goals, Member States must create and implement "restoration plans".

Supply chain compliance: a win for ESG sustainability or just more red tape?

2023 began with further compliance challenges. Large German companies must adhere to the due diligence requirements of the new German Supply Chain Act, which aims to foster human rights and environmental standards. In parallel, the European legal initiative for a Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive on due diligence in supply chains is progressing. A worldwide movement to hold companies responsible for activity across their supply chains is accelerating, ushering in a new era of ESG compliance for companies and their advisors.

Parametric insurance: a newcomer but no longer a niche product

Climate change knows no borders. But what about greenwashing?

As we wrote in last year's edition, sustainability claims are "trendy but tricky", at least from the perspective of advertisers: On the one hand, there is social and economic pressure to offer green, sustainable, climate-friendly or even CO2-neutral products and services. On the other hand, one should avoid not only the accusation but also the legal consequences of engaging in greenwashing, i.e. misleading environmental advertising. This year, our slogan needs the following update: "Sustainability claims: trendy, tricky and soon to be expensive", as the EU Commission's latest proposal for a Directive on Green Claims foresees a strict regulation of environmental claims and labels.

Erneuerbares-Gas-Gesetz (EGG) mit Déjà vu: Die Strafzahlung für Gasversorger und die daran anknüpfende Frage der Weiterverrechnung an Endkunden!

Am 15.02.2023 wurde der Begutachtungsentwurf zum Bundesgesetz über die Einführung einer Versorgerverpflichtung für Gas aus erneuerbaren Quellen veröffentlicht ("Erneuerbares-Gas-Gesetz-Entwurf" – "EGG-Entwurf"). Der EGG-Entwurf sieht die Verpflichtung von Gasversorgern vor, einen bestimmten Anteil der von ihnen verkauften Gasmengen durch erneuerbare Gase zu ersetzen. Kommen Gasversorger dieser Verpflichtung nicht nach, drohen Strafzahlungen in Form eines Ausgleichsbetrags, der von der Regulierungsbehörde (E-Control) durch Bescheid vorgeschrieben wird. Die Strafzahlungen könnten nicht nur Versorger, sondern letztlich auch deren Endkunden zu spüren bekommen.
