In 2016, the tech industry had a record 1,613 deals valued at $323B, including a number of high profile transactions such as Microsoft’s acquisition of LinkedIn. The pace of these transactions is only expected to increase. 

EHS risks associated with these transactions cover a broad spectrum, and it can be difficult to determine the appropriate level of due diligence to meet changing internal and external stakeholder expectations. The Phase I ESA, with its strict focus on subsurface soil and groundwater contamination issues was the first thing people once thought of when considering EHS due diligence. We must now think about anything under the EHS umbrella that will affect the future of the business and its ability to navigate an acquisition or divestiture. 

Read how Antea Group’s new blog series will explore the range of risks and expectations associated with the myriad types of tech industry transactions and provide insights into ways that a company’s EHS function can bring value to the transaction process.
