The Legal 500 Green Guide emphasizes the importance of law firms not only advocating for sustainability but also actively integrating it into their internal operations and business strategies. We align with this by incorporating sustainability into our culture, setting goals to reduce our carbon footprint, and implementing formal commitments to sustainability policies. Additionally, we engage in thought leadership, provide sustainability-related services beyond legal advice, and offer pro bono assistance to organizations dedicated to environmental causes.

We are committed to helping clients navigate the rapidly evolving field of ESG matters and supporting them not only in meeting their legal, regulatory and tax obligations, but also in creating long-term value for their stakeholders by assisting clients with the adoption of environmentally and socially responsible practices.

Highlights for Belgium

Our Belgium office plays a pivotal role in advancing our ESG practice. We actively support top-tier clients in significant renewable energy transactions and business initiatives.

Our dynamic team consistently contributes to thought leadership in sustainability. In addition to widely publishing on green energy and sustainability topics, we organised an ESG Horizons event in October 2023. This event aimed to share insights and expertise, helping clients navigate the complex sustainability landscape and foster long-term green value.

Furthermore, we demonstrate our commitment to sustainability through concrete actions. Our Brussels office has achieved a BREEAM Very Good classification. This recognition is attributable to our implementation of solar electricity self-generation, energy-efficient measures, and an effective waste management system.

Highlights for the Netherlands

Our Dutch energy and infrastructure team makes a key contribution within our regional ESG practice, providing demonstrable expertise across the energy transition and decarbonisation of the built environment.

Our team actively contributes to advancing legal expertise in support of the green transition. We played a crucial role in fostering the market for circular solar panels by aiding the Amsterdam Economic Board in establishing a legal framework for collaborative efforts involving multiple parties. This initiative highlights our commitment to facilitating sustainable practices and innovations within the energy sector.

Moreover, our engagement extends beyond legal frameworks to actively promoting dialogue and knowledge-sharing on sustainable development. In collaboration with the Dutch Green Building Council, we contribute to the development of sustainability tools and practices tailored to the real estate and construction sectors. By leveraging these partnerships, we highlight our dedication to driving positive environmental impact and fostering sustainable growth within the community.
