Create value through ESG

ESG are a set of environmental, social and governance standards for company operations; criteria used by many investors. More and more stakeholders now demand transparency and sustainable actions and are interested in information that goes beyond a company’s financial report. They expect companies to take responsibility by identifying the ecological and social impact of their business models, and steering it through sustainable development.

Managing your business in a responsible and sustainable manner, will help you to avoid regulatory risks and catch long-term opportunities. Move from theory to action with a practical, purpose-led plan that will deliver sustained outcomes.

ESG reporting

Shareholders and stakeholders nowadays demand information from businesses that goes beyond the traditional financials. We support you in delivering both financial and non-financial information to your stakeholders, combining it in an integrated manner into an integrated report, a sustainability report, climate risk reports and other types of reports. Moreover, we ensure that you can demonstrate that the information is reliable and therefore credible.

Sustainable finance

Sustainable finance encompasses all activities by financial service providers that aim to reduce harm to the environment, promote social welfare and encourage responsible corporate governance. We can help you to develop a suitable investment strategy, understand the impacts of capital flows, guide you through the challenges of determining your climate risks and generally transform into a resilient and innovative financial business.

ESG strategy and implementation

We will review your existing sustainability strategy and formulate one that suits your organisation's growth strategy. We will then make this strategy operational through Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and implement it by, for example, setting up a governance structure and monitoring system. This also involves defining a sustainable procurement strategy and making environmentally friendly changes with regard to production.

Diversity and inclusion

Societies and workforces are becoming more diverse in terms of gender, ethnicity, religion, (dis)-ability, etc. –and diverse teams show more potential and an increased performance. Thereby, companies are facing pressure from shareholders, employees, legislators and media to demonstrate their efforts and results related to diversity.
