In an article for Export Compliance Manager, White & Case partner Cristina Brayton-Lewis and associate Jessica Lynd are quoted about the application of ESG principles to trade compliance.
"From an export compliance stand point, we've been seeing a shift from strict compliance to one that looks at the export compliance framework more holistically – not just considering license obligations, but also from an ESG and investor perspective. From whether the transaction complies with applicable laws to considering the broader context of the transaction," Brayton-Lewis said.
Lynd discussed the demand from investors and customers: "The support for the work has increased due to capital markets demanding ESG disclosures. That will get compliance teams access to capital."
