Due diligence is the term used to describe a careful risk review.
The aim is to identify the most important risks that could arise for a company - in this case in relation to sustainability.
Against the background of the increased interest and relevance of sustainability criteria, ESG due diligence is gaining in importance for ALSO. As acquisitions are part of our growth strategy, environmental, social, or organizational aspects are also examined. We see potential advantages of ESG due diligence in the uncovering of reputational risks, the identification of (future) liability risks, the determination as well as, if necessary, the quantification of value enhancement potentials and ultimately resulting costs that could be incurred after the acquisition of a target.
