We are living in exceptional times which are making us work differently. Although we are aware that these are difficult conditions, at Anthesis Lavola we are convinced that to overcome a crisis we need to row together and to work consistently. This current new situation makes us innovate and evolve and when we overcome this stage, we will be here to help our clients to act sustainability, creating and supporting more productive and resilient organizations, territories and ultimately citizens.

Therefore, after weeks of preparation, we have added a Transactions & Finance business unit to our service portfolio. This is a service already consolidated and with a broad list of successful project examples throughout the wider Anthesis Group. Following from our recent similar opening in Brazil, we are now incorporating it into our operations in Spain, Portugal, Andorra and Colombia, and therefore further expanding our services.

At Transactions and Finance, we work to support our clients across the broad areas related to environmental, social and corporate management, creating economic value and competitive advantages to achieve sustainability goals.

Our support as experts on Environmental Due Diligence (EDD) processes – whether in acquisitions, investments or divestments – allows our clients to determine and quantify current and potential liabilities as well as the environmental risks associated with their operations. We combine current (and upcoming) regulations, our extensive knowledge of the market and the best available practices in the sector. Our consultants analyze priority and critical indicators, for all types of companies, creating added value when analyzing investments, managing risk and optimizing long-term sustainable returns.

To lead this new business unit, we have appointed Joana Capote Soares. Joana has more than fifteen years of experience in environmental consulting and is a specialist in environmental, health and safety (EHS) compliance audits, EHS due diligence (EHSDD) for purchases and sales, corporate audits and corporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategies for numerous industrial and service sectors in Spain and Portugal. She has also completed several projects on environmental impact assessment, environmental permitting, corporate sustainability strategies, energy reduction, awareness raising schemes and development of tools for compliance with environmental directives and has managed different international projects for clients in Chile, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, Bulgaria, Brazil and the United States.

Joana will operate from our new location in Lisbon, liaising with Madrid and Barcelona offices and in constant contact with the rest of Anthesis Group Transactions & Finance international teams.
