Careful consideration of environmental and social requirements as part of the due diligence process is becoming increasingly important as financial institutions adopt assessment and management of these factors into their lending decisions, through the revised Equator Principles 4 (EP4) and the International Finance Corporation Performance Standards (IFC PS).

Additionally, increasing obligations to manage and disclose Environmental, Social and Governance matters provide a strong driver for companies to ensure that these areas are incorporated into the transaction due diligence process.

Our multidisciplinary teams include experts in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) requirements, as well as Health and Safety professionals, to assist your organisation in understanding these aspects and inform your decision-making process. Combined with our technical and commercial expertise, RPS is able to provide a full spectrum service to evaluate your target asset and give you the best chance of securing any necessary finance to complete the deal.
