Environmental Social Governance (ESG)

Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

In an ever-changing world, companies are increasingly faced with the challenge of balancing their economic goals with social responsibility and environmental sustainability. At Zirngibl, we firmly believe that a strong sustainability and CSR strategy is not only ethical, but can also be key to the long-term success and resilience of companies in a dynamic business environment.

Our team of highly skilled lawyers has extensive expertise and years of experience in the impact of sustainability and CSR regulation on traditional areas of law. We understand the complex challenges companies face in relation to these developments and provide tailored advisory services to serve our clients’ individual needs and objectives.

We support the development and implementation of a holistic ESG strategy that reflects our clients' corporate values and objectives. Together, we develop action plans to achieve positive environmental, social and governance impacts.

Our experts are available to assist with the legal assessment of CSR and/or ESG policies and requirements. We help minimise compliance risks and establish best practices in line with national and international standards.

CSR criteria are an integral part of modern management remuneration systems. We advise on remuneration systems with a focus on CSR and their legal implementation.

We advise on investments in renewable energies as well as on the planning and implementation of sustainable real estate projects. In addition to legal advice on current developments in the real estate sector, this includes in particular the consideration of current ESG requirements in the development of building law as well as in the drafting and negotiation of purchase, construction, rental or lease agreements.

Sustainability aspects are playing an increasingly important role in financing contracts of all kinds. We advise on the relevant contractual documents and their drafting as well as on impact investments in young and established companies.

We analyse CSR risks in preparation for and in the context of corporate transactions. This provides our clients with a sound basis for decisions in the context of mergers, acquisitions and investments.

Our experts follow the latest developments on supply chain regulation and develop tailor-made solutions to minimise liability.

Lawsuits demanding measures to implement the goals of the Paris Agreement or other CSR standards or allegations of so-called greenwashing are hitting more and more companies in Germany. We advise on how to defend against unjustified accusations and defend our clients against such claims in court.

Our experts advise on digital business models and their legally compliant implementation, taking into account the requirements of corporate digital responsibility in line with current standards.
