The importance of due diligence
Merger and acquisition activity has long been the cornerstone supporting growth and generating business opportunities, but with each investment there are elements of risk and uncertainty requiring specialist investigation to understand and control. Today, the increasing social, governmental, and consumer attention given to the global impacts of corporate business, presents new risks and opportunities for investors.
We understand that those companies with a firm commitment to effective environmental social governance (ESG) are better positioned to deliver higher value creation. Following our own, holistic approach to ESG for over 20 years, Sweco’s timely delivery has provided an early understanding of the business drivers and principal risk factors that are key to realisation of deal value from transactions.
Operating on both the buy-side and sell-side for a wide range of corporate clients, investors and funders at all stages in the transaction cycle, we routinely integrate our activities with other transaction advisors.
Our environmental due diligence service is technically robust, independently accountable, commercially focused and tailored to the unique objectives of each deal, ensuring risks can be better understood.
