Sustainable Finance and Risk Management

Wigge & Partners’ team for Sustainable Finance and Risk Management are experienced advisors to Swedish and international financial market participants and investors. We help our clients navigate sustainability-related issues and comprehensive regulatory requirements both in Sweden and abroad.

Wigge & Partners advise clients in regulatory and strategic sustainability-related matters for financial products and services, both in relation to ongoing matters and in connection with investments and other transactions. A particular focus is the operational and strategic reality of our clients, as well as their needs inter alia related to the implementation of new regulatory requirements.

We also help clients to identify necessary adjustments to agreements, authorizations and internal policies in order to integrate sustainability risks and identify the applicability of regulatory requirements.

The team members are highly experienced regulatory experts in sustainability-related matters and all types of transactions. All practice areas in the firm are represented on the team.

We can provide advice for most, if not all, sustainability-related legislation, including CS3D, CSRD (including ESRS), SFDR, the Taxonomy Regulation and the EUGBS. In addition, we provide regulatory advice about sustainability factors for banks, investment firms and funds.
