Sector knowledge and technical capabilities related to corporate environmental and social responsibility. This is the basis for COWI's tailor-made transaction advice on strategic divestitures, mergers or acquisitions.

Both divested businesses and small and medium-sized companies requiring financial strength to develop their business further are targets for industrial trade buyers and financial investors.


COWI assists in improving the presentation of the company's environmental and social performance. This can be achieved through prospects or data room documentation. This can also be achieved by upgrading environmental aspects prior to the actual due diligence process in order to improve the position of negotiation.


Access to documentation is often limited to data room reviews for many due diligence processes. COWI can assist in assessing the risk potential based on review of such documentation. If exclusivity is agreed, there will often be permission to access the individual assets included in the transaction (phase 1).

We assist customers in improving the understanding of the potential liabilities through phase 1 environmental site assessments. With the rapid mobilisation requirements, COWI's vast resource base is a definite asset.

MergerTwo or more merging parties may be exposed to financial implications as a result of the merger. COWI will assist in completing follow-up works in accordance with the conditions in the merger agreement.
