Environmental Due Diligence for Mergers and Acquisitions

Companies undertaking merger and acquisition activity need to ensure that any material environmental risks and liabilities, corporate responsibility, carbon management and sustainability issues are fully identified and incorporated into the business model. Only by ensuring identified risks and liabilities are fully quantified can the impact on cash Capex/Opex Programmes, Cash Flow Forecasts and Environmental Provisions be fully understood.
