For more than 30 years, we have been a recognized technical leader and innovator in evaluating the EHS risks associated with business transactions – from straightforward acquisition, divestiture, refinancing and insurance placement to more complex merger, restructuring, buyout, public offering and bankruptcy situations. Our experts collaborate with subject matter experts in a range of potentially relevant areas to tailor the scope of our review and the format of our deliverables to make the most of a limited due diligence period. For instance, we may supplement an environmental site assessment with regulatory compliance, product compliance or climate risk reviews.

Major law firms, private equity firms, lending institutions and corporations have come to rely on our responsiveness and exacting quality to support their decision making in this high-stakes, time-sensitive arena.

Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG)

During due diligence, private equity firms increasingly consider ESG – investment criteria related to environmental stewardship, social performance and corporate governance. Poor performance in these areas can negatively affect company reputation and value. On the other hand, research demonstrates that managing ESG issues well can increase profit and productivity and reduce financial risk.

Ramboll’s ESG due diligence screening reviews assess a company’s awareness and management of material ESG issues relevant to their business.

We can supplement these screening reviews with an assessment of a company’s ‘ESG value-creating potential’ – how well a company integrates ESG into core business strategies, processes, policies and metrics. The deliverable is a series of tailored recommendations for strategic ESG management to generate superior financial, competitive and risk mitigation performance.

Post-Merger Integration (PMI)

Mergers, acquisitions, spinoffs and divestitures can significantly alter company culture, business priorities and resources. Following a significant transaction, EHS leaders often struggle to maintain their current programs while meeting the additional demands of integration and divestiture.

Successful EHS post-merger integration – blending two dissimilar programs into one effective organisation – can be difficult. Few companies accomplish this without careful planning and sufficient resources to deliver their integration objectives. Ramboll’s global PMI services provide a streamlined approach, customizable tools and expert strategic advice that save our clients time and money.
