Sustainability & ESG Solutions

Globally, there is a growing business imperative to address sustainability concerns. The risks faced by companies are increasing and becoming more complex, due to the realities of climate change, global health pandemics and rising industrialisation. These risks have led to the emergence of a global sustainability movement, driven by capital markets, governments, communities and various stakeholders. This demand for transparency and accountability in ‘Environmental, Social and Governance’ (ESG) matters calls for better understanding of the impact of business and industry on the environment and our societies and an effective response.

Our solutions aim at enabling organisations to integrate sustainability across business functions for a holistic transformation – addressing risks and leveraging opportunities.

Our Services 

Recognising that ESG is a key driver of growth, we work with organisations to embed ESG in their business model and strategy. We utilise a three-step approach for strategy development:

  • Materiality assessment: Identifying key ESG material issues, risks or opportunities that are of primary concern to stakeholders and could impact an organisation’s ability to execute its business strategy.
  • Maturity diagnostics: Assessing the sustainability and ESG maturity of an organisation by benchmarking its performance to the industry and its peer’s best practices, regulatory requirements, as well as global sustainability standards and frameworks.
  • Development of strategy and roadmap: Using the insights from materiality assessment and maturity diagnostics, identifying strategic options for mitigating priority risks, accessing key opportunities and building a resilient business model. Developing a time-bound implementation roadmap for the strategic options to aid different functions within the organisation.

Helping organisations respond to voluntary and mandatory sustainability and ESG reporting requirements in line with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, Business Responsibility and Sustainability Reporting (BRSR), Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), and Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and Integrated Reporting (IR) framework:

  • Identifying and capturing ESG metrics for disclosures, providing support in implementing data management systems and developing a narrative to capture the organisation’s ESG strategy and performance.

With an increasing focus on ESG integration, investors are looking to objectively assess the ESG performance of an organisation and use the data to define their portfolios. This gives rise to the ESG ratings and rankings universe that includes Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), MSCI, FTSE Russell and Sustainalytics. These ratings assess the ESG performance based on the information provided by the organisations and make the data available publicly. Further, some ratings such as the Carbon Disclosure Project provide scores on the performance of the company on specific ESG issues such as climate change, water security and forests.

Our Services:

Leveraging deep expertise and experience of working with businesses on ESG ratings and rankings, our Sustainability and ESG experts help clients across sectors to implement strategies to enhance their scores. We also help organisations in integrating their data management systems and aligning responses across multiple disclosures.

Businesses are operating in a rapidly evolving landscape facing ESG-related risks that can impact their profitability and success. The prevalence of ESG-related risks has accelerated over the last ten years. In 2012, the top risks identified by the World Economic Forum by likelihood and impact included one environmental risk. Ten years later, ESG-related risks including climate change, biodiversity loss, infectious diseases, natural resource crisis among others account for nearly all of the top risks.

Over time, investors have also started seeking information on how organisations are identifying and responding to ESG-related risks with a focus on climate-related risks in line with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure. This is evident from the growing number of regulations coming into place globally mandating associated disclosures annually from organisations.

Our Sustainability and ESG experts help organisations in identifying critical ESG and climate-related risks, preparing strategic responses to mitigate these risks and developing a future-ready and resilient business.

Our Services:

  • Capacity building of Board and Senior Leadership on ESG and climate-related risks.
  • Identifying, assessing and prioritising ESG risks across the value chain and supporting its integration into the existing Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) framework using recognised standards.
  • Identifying climate-related risks and opportunities and associated financial impact in alignment with recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
  • Conducting scenario analysis to assess potential business implications of climate-related risks and opportunities and informing stakeholders about how the organisation is positioning itself considering these risks and opportunities.

We understand businesses have diverse capabilities and require a uniquely focused understanding of the sustainability and ESG issues. We help businesses navigate the changing landscape of sustainability and ESG, understand the business case for change and share industry best practices by curating and undertaking capacity building sessions for the Board and Senior Leadership. Some of the key questions that we aim to answer through our capacity building sessions include:

  • What is sustainability and how is it linked to value creation?
  • What are the key drivers of corporate sustainability?
  • What is trending in the world of sustainable business?
  • What are the expectations of investors on sustainability and ESG integration?
  • How should one assess the sustainability and ESG maturity of an organisation?
  • How should organisations develop a sustainability and ESG strategy?
  • How can organisations ensure stakeholder buy-in for effective roll-out?
  • How are other industry and peer organisations incorporating sustainability and ESG into their strategy?
  • How should organisations engage external stakeholders including suppliers in their sustainability and ESG journey?
  • What are the different frameworks for reporting on sustainability and ESG?
  • How can organisations develop impactful disclosures?
