As planet earth retreated into phase one lockdown last year, the global consulting firm Bain, very presciently pronounced “Covid-19 was a dress rehearsal for climate change”. While this remains true and will be an enduring headline, 2020 will also be remembered as the year that the Environmental, Social and Governance (or ESG) agenda took center stage in boardrooms and businesses around the world.
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Risk Management Consulting
ESG factors are increasingly used by the investor community to assess the risk profile and therefore the sustainability of companies.
We work with Board and C-level executives to make sense of what’s happening across today’s fast moving and ever evolving ESG space. We provide expertise on the ESG factors that are material and relevant to your business so that you can focus on executing your business strategies and improving your financial performance.
These tools very quickly help you determine what is functioning and where more is required across the entire spectrum of potential ESG risks to your business. Our assessment tool is modelled on a combination of the COSO and TCFD frameworks and examines your organizational readiness to manage both the existing and the emerging Environmental, Social and Governance risks you may face.
We provide strategic ESG risk engagements specific to your business-needs. These include ESG risk and opportunity assessments, competitive analyses, disclosure considerations, scenario planning, and advice relating to ESG Risk Governance, ESG Risk Strategy and ESG Risk Management.
Our climate-related assessment tools are modelled entirely on the TCFD framework and based on the TCFD Technical Manual. They can be used to very quickly assess your organizational readiness to manage existing and emerging climate-related risks and are tailored to both Finance Industries (Banks, Insurers, Asset Owners, Asset Managers) and Non-financial industries.
