Environment, Social, Governance
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations are no longer an optional agenda item.
They are pivotal factors in corporate strategy, growth, and meeting the standards of shareholders, investors and employees alike. Coupled with the global cascade of standardisation projects underway, adopting an ESG-driven policy should now be front of mind for every organisation and its board.
ESG commitments, in particular, are increasingly falling under the spotlight. It is essential that all organisations improve their strategy, disclosure and compliance around ESG factors to meet this rising pressure from investors, regulators and society in general.
How we can help
While broadly defined, the components of ESG are rapidly shifting into sharper focus. Our ESG team has a robust understanding of the regulatory and policy drivers of the market, and extensive experience across a wide range of sectors and contexts.
We take a holistic approach to assessing and engaging the broad range of ESG risk and compliance – from climate change and resource efficiency, human rights and community engagement, to anti-bribery and corruption, transparency and disclosure, product governance, and risk management more generally.
We help clients embed best practice risk and compliance frameworks and governance that are flexible enough to evolve in line with shifting ESG standards and stakeholder expectations, and can equip them with the right foresight, specialist knowledge and processes to manage exposures to risk and create sustainable value.
