double or just regular?


materiality

Materiality is a cornerstone of ESG. We help companies measure and manage sustainability performance over time. We follow the latest guidelines for double materiality assessments – meaning the impact of ESG issues on the financial and operational performance of your company (inward impact) and the impact of your company on the external environment (outward impact).

gap analysis & benchmarking


best-practice

Do you wonder if you are missing out on the benefits of best-practice ESG disclosure? More companies are streamlining and improving their sustainability performance, and publicly traded are improving ways to disclose their sustainability performance in more standardised and comparable ways. We offer assessments and gap analyses on ESG performance indicators relative to market leaders or competitors.

frameworks


esg disclosure

Investors and regulators increasingly request or require corporate disclosures on ESG risks and issues. We help you manoeuvre the landscape of ESG reporting standards and guidelines, including well-established frameworks such as the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), GRI (Global Reporting Initiative), GBP (Green Bond Principles), IIRC (Integrated Reporting Council), UNGC (United Nations Global Compact), SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), SBG (Sustainability Bond Guidelines), PRI (Principle for Responsible Investment), and SASB (Sustainability Accounting Standards Board), or TCFD (Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures).

We always seek to connect ESG disclosure with the long-term strategy of our clients by linking sustainability performance milestones and KPIs with core business activities. And importantly we outline a strategic and efficient approach to ESG disclosure by selectively focusing on a few and strategically important ESG frameworks and ratings that align with external and internal stakeholder expectations.

“We know this is hard to navigate, and we’re here to help. Our services are based on key standards, guidelines and the latest trends in corporate disclosure and regulatory developments that place new ESG requirements on businesses.”
