ESG Concepts

Bloomberg Law’s ESG Toolkits provide practical guidance for in-house counsel in the form of checklists, sample forms, overviews, guides, agreements, and more.

Reed Smith’s overview details the increasing ESG pressure on companies in the sector due to increased aerospace-and defense-related spending by their customers, supply chain disruptions, corruption, import and export controls on defense related technology and an increasing complexity in sanctions rules as geopolitical tensions intensify.

The checklist outlines the steps aerospace and defense companies can take to develop and report on their ESG disclosures, in relation to these categories:

  • The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) Standards
  • Hazardous Waste Management
  • Data Security
  • Product Safety
  • Fuel Economy & Emissions in Use-Phase
