ESG M&A has been saved
Supporting your organisation in meeting ESG ambitions throughout the M&A lifecycle
Our M&A ESG team is here to support you throughout the entire M&A lifecycle. We support corporate and private equity clients with unlocking environmental, social, and governance (ESG) value by identifying company-specific ESG risk and opportunities, developing a tailor-made ESG strategy, providing ESG due diligence and value creation services as well as post-deal integration assistance.
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) has become mainstream, resulting in a huge shift in capital allocation, consumer purchasing behaviour and regulatory intervention. ESG increasingly defines long-term shareholder value and having an ESG strategy is no longer a ‘nice-to-have’, but a necessity.
As industries and organisations transform around this megatrend, M&A comes to the fore as a mechanism for both corporates and Private Equity firms to achieve a significant and sustainable uplift in ESG performance.
Our M&A ESG team is here to support you throughout the entire M&A lifecycle. From defining a clear ESG M&A strategy, target screening and due diligence, to realising value post deal. Harnessing our global ESG expertise Deloitte also supports clients across ESG strategy development, climate change risk modelling, net-zero and decarbonisation and sustainable finance.
With our multidisciplinary and international network of ESG experts, we offer buyside, joint venture and sell-side clients integrated due diligence services at every stage of the transaction lifecycle:
- We offer pre-deal value by analysing the maturity of the ESG approach of a company and developing an ESG strategy & implementation plan in preparation for sale;
- We offer ESG due diligence by providing an ESG perspective on transactions from both a due diligence (risk & opportunity) and a value creation perspective, resulting in valuation impact by identification of ESG value drivers;
- With post-deal integration, transformation and value creation, we consider how the Target fits in into the Company’s ESG strategy using for instance a Day 1 analysis as well as providing ongoing support for ESG value implementation.
