As ESG-related regulation has become more prominent around the world, new challenges have been created for many businesses which may require them to explore ways to restructure, refinance or recapitalise their business and assets.
This not only includes the attitudes of many financial institutions and other lenders which are themselves subject to more stringent ESG disclosures, but also a growing array of ESG financial and investment products, ever-changing governance, social requirements and the impact of energy transition on future cash flows and capital.
This ever-changing regime is affecting the way businesses need to assess supply chains, new environmental and sustainability restraints on future cash flows and a focus on sustainability when dealing with turnaround management and distressed assets.
