Governance, risk & compliance

Responsible investment

Creating value from environmental,
social and governance issues

 

As businesses face more restrictions on the materials they use, the need to establish governance around sustainability to manage risk and ensure compliance is growing. National and international companies trying to meet these standards or regulations can find themselves in a minefield as they navigate the areas of governance, risk, and compliance.

Drawing from knowledge of recent developments globally, advising other organisations and best practices, we'll help you to:

  • Develop codes of conduct, policies and procedures that meet your stakeholders' expectations and ensure your organisation's values are respected and reinforced.
  • Win employee buy-in to your sustainability strategy with effective frameworks and approaches that outline risks and opportunities and help everyone understand and support your strategy, resulting in clear and coherent communications and optimal employee engagement.
  • Manage risk and regulatory compliance so you'll understand their impact on your company’s strategy and operations. We'll examine all sustainable development legal requirements, company policies, and industry/voluntary codes to assess what your compliance levels are, where you can improve and how future planned operational changes might interact with these.
