We go through the auditee's existing policies, management systems, practices, and more to look for shortcomings with relevant ESG and Human Rights regulations as well as international standards and identify areas for improvement.
We also develop software tools to identify, prioritize, and monitor human rights risks and violations over time, action plans to manage the identified risks, systems of consequences to take adequate steps according to risk level, and more.
We inform you of abstract risks and conduct audits on your existing and future suppliers in Turkey to identify any concrete risks or violations in relation to the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Law.

Comprehensive M&A ESG Risk Analysis
Corporate mergers and acquisitions come with intrinsic, frequently hard-to-detect human rights risks. The buyer's decision-making is influenced and the transaction's worth may be affected by such risks. If they are not detected and controlled, human rights concerns connected to the target company's activities or supply chains may result in serious risks, such as reputational damage, regulatory fines, and legal fees for the buyer after the transaction closes.
The buyer will be able to better understand its risk exposure, plan risk management and mitigation, integrate internal systems post-closing, and ultimately protect the value and sustainability of the asset by doing human rights due diligence and ESG risk analyses as part of the M&A process. If the risk analysis is done as part of the seller's due diligence, the seller will have the chance to address any problems that may have an influence on the deal's value before closing. Overall, thorough human rights due diligence make it easier to sell the target and its assets quickly, effectively, and profitably.
We identify and evaluate the target's ESG and human rights risks, as well as any current risk management procedures and the target's capacity to manage such risks, as part of our human rights due diligence services in the M&A environment. We have mastered the art of asking questions and acquiring the essential information and documentation from the target thanks to our local expertise in human rights concerns and firms' readiness to manage such risks. We know what to look for in the data room to find hidden dangers and what criteria to weigh when deciding how to prioritize the focus of risk assessments.
In addition to closely collaborating with your M&A and legal teams, our advisory team of human rights specialists moves at the speed of the transaction and upholds complete professional secrecy throughout the due diligence procedure.
ESG Investment Audits
Although it frequently focuses on environmental risk concerns, ESG due diligence has become a crucial component of investment decisions. But the cornerstone of a truly ethical investment is factoring human rights risks into ESG due diligence.

We assist investors in setting up risk management systems to evaluate the managerial maturity and human rights risks of their investee enterprises. As part of this, we carry out analyses of how human rights will be impacted and set up suitable human rights due diligence procedures to assist determine if investment projects are sustainable. On your behalf, we can also communicate with portfolio company management to encourage better adherence to human rights norms.
