Business that considers environmental and social aspects alongside economic results and is managed in a transparent manner – this is the goal of the ESG framework, which has recently gained much attention. A survey carried out by the prestigious Czech research agency Ipsos for our law firm indicates that this is an issue that is currently being addressed by more than 75% of Czech companies and businesses. Although for the time being ESG obligations apply mainly to companies in the banking and financial sector, it is envisaged that these obligations will be extended to all large, and selected medium-sized, companies in the future. We have discovered that seemingly over half of the companies in the Czech Republic would be inclined to use the services of professionals from law firms or consultancies to implement successful ESG solutions in such a case.
