Climate Change & ESG

Climate Change & ESG

We foresaw ESG as a mainstream before it became an integral part of the business. Both from corporate practice as well as social responsibility perspectives, we systemically invested in the ESG practice as a long-term play and have gradually built a full-bench of 25 lawyers who specialise in different aspects of ESG.

We assist clients to achieve business objectives and tackle challenges presented by the changing landscape. The Team is well-versed with statutory guidelines and standards and help mitigate climate risks through adoption of sustainable practices. The Team has advised multinationals and business conglomerates on issues around human rights and corporate social responsibility.

The Firm assist clients with ESG disclosures, integrated reporting and auditing, sustainable finance and investment opportunities, responsible business conduct, pro-bono strategy, and due diligence. Furthermore, the Team advises clients on projects concerning renewable energy, technology and innovation, and infrastructure facilitating the energy transition.

Being a socially responsible Firm, among many other ESG initiatives, we were an integral part of the Paani Foundation, which has recently won the Earth award – the UN’s highest environmental honour – to recognize outstanding leaders from government, civil society, and the private sector for their transformative impact on the environment. Also, the firm has set its target to become carbon neutral soon. 

As a testament to its credibility and expertise, the Firm was awarded the ‘Best Legal Consulting Firm of the Year’ at the India National Solar Awards 2022. The Firm was listed as an expert advisor for the ‘India’s Top Five Announced Solar Project Funding Deals of 2021’, as reported by Mercom Communications India, and ranked as the No.1 Law firm in India in BloombergNEF 1Q Clean Energy League Tables. Luthra and Luthra Law Offices India also featured in the Top 20 of the Euromoney – IJ League Table (in the Renewables category) and was one of two Indian firms featured on the list.
