WKB Wiercinski Kwiecinski Baehr has announced that it is "responding to global trends" by establishing a new ESG practice, led by Partner Marcin Smolarek and Managing Associate Augustyn Wrobel.

Smolarek and Wrobel are from the firm's Banking and Finance practice, with the new ESG multidisciplinary team to also include practice heads Agnieszka Chwialkowska (public procurement), Marta Midloch (infrastructure), Maciej Szambelanczyk (energy), Sergiusz Urban (environmental protection), and Anna Wyrzykowska (real estate), among others. 

“Concern for the environment, CSR, and compliance with the principles of corporate governance are increasingly recognized as important market factors that can determine a businesses’ competitive advantage," commented WKB Managing Partner Jerzy Baehr. "By observing global trends daily and cooperating with international partners, we can observe that ESG norms have become one of the key standards in the development of global business. By establishing an ESG team at WKB, we want to effectively support our clients in their efforts towards sustainable development."
