Fasken

Overview

Fasken has been providing a broad range of legal advice to regulated entities and carbon market participants for over 20 years.  We analyze policy and assist with strategy. We help proponents and investors with offset projects, and to transact carbon and other environmental commodities. We also assist with compliance, reporting and ESG and corporate social responsibility initiatives.
 
While a regular part of our work is helping clients meet regulatory requirements by monitoring policy, suggesting proactive risk mitigation strategies, and advising on disclosure obligations, we know that the industry is interested in more than just compliance. We’re working with clients who are developing net zero commitments, reducing or offsetting emissions, adapting infrastructure, and entering into joint ventures and other initiatives to capitalize on carbon opportunities and mitigate climate risks.
 
Our clients include manufacturers, technology companies, real estate and natural resource companies, regulators, carbon project originators, aggregators, buyer and sellers, as well as financial institutions and banks.
