Included in this latest issue is a swathe of features by industry experts as well as a number of pieces crafted by the IJGlobal editorial team.
This latest report includes an in-depth feature with Vauban Infrastructure Partners' ESG director Gwen Colin who tracks the evolution from ESG from an industry-wide nice-to-have to being a central pilar in her organisation’s DNA.
Meanwhile – riding high on having won awards in 19 global infrastructure finance categories at last year’s IJGlobal Awards – David Lee, head of Allen & Overy’s global infrastructure group, and Tokyo partner Scott Neilson reveal how the law firm is determined to lead the way in helping companies and entire countries towards net-zero.
Arup fields 3 leading lights – Tim Treharne, Americas advisory lead; Steven Lloyd, ESG and sustainable investment lead; and Vikki Williams, water digital lead – to shine a light on the firm’s philosophy which is reflected in the global consultancy’s strategy to address climate change, making sustainable use of natural resources and delivering societal benefit.
DLA Piper fields Natasha Luther-Jones, international head of sustainability and ESG and global co-chair of the energy and natural resources practice, alongside the law firm’s lead for sustainability and ESG – Rhys Davies.
Luther-Jones and Davies showcase how DLA Piper’s thriving ESG practice walks the walk, taking a consistent approach to ESG that sees it lead by example with recommendations to clients that have already been tried and tested within the firm.
Beyond these sponsored features, IJGlobal presents a review of recent hires across the global recruitment market; a feature on Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners and its deployment of technology in the pursuit of improved ESG standing; a focus on how next-gen investment tech can unlock clean energy performance by Benjamin Cohen, founder and chief executive of T-REX; a case study on Ancala’s involvement in Iceland’s HS Orka; and a case study on InfraVia Capital Partners’ acquisition of a 70% stake in Dutch energy-from-waste recycling company Blue Phoenix Group.
