Create value through ESG

Assembling today for accountable green strategy

Building a sustainable business is about making a tangible difference — cultivating smarter business for a stronger world. You want to drive value and fuel growth while strengthening our environment and society. Our teams are ready to help you build greater resilience and trust by making strategic moves to manage your environmental, climate and social impacts; and by addressing regulations, investments and metrics across ESG (environmental, social and governance) opportunities.

Step into your ESG journey

Environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) issues appeared in 2005, but the subject has continued to attract special attention since the publication of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in 2015. All these issues taken together constitute the sustainability criterion for businesses. The abbreviation ESG represents a range of issues, and not all of them will be equally relevant in every sector.

ESG principle

In the face of government incentives and regulations, investor standards, and the perceptions of both internal and external stakeholders, ESG expectations shape today’s economic landscape, redefining value and risk in business. In this ecosystem, aligning company actions with ESG priorities into measurable impact is at the top of our agenda. 

Our community of problem solvers stand ready to build equity, transparency, trust, and resilience by addressing regulations, investments and metrics across ESG opportunities. Our team can help you blueprint and and attain your sustainability ambitions, driving short and long-term ESG value through strategy, scenario planning, mergers & acquisitions, capital allocation, ESG due diligence, business model reinvention and portfolio optimization.

Our Services

ESG Strategy

Materiality analysis
In order to determine which ESG aspects to focus on, we analyse all of the company's operations and supply chain, and consult with its internal and external stakeholders.

Goal setting and KPI selection
We help you select and set specific goals for each strategic ESG area, and identify a set of key performance indicators, which would allow you to monitor the progress, on the basis of which subsequent non-financial information will be disclosed.

Road mapping
We will propose a plan with initiatives for each specific ESG area aimed at achieving the set objectives, which will form the basis of the ESG practice for the upcoming years. Instead of incoherent ideas you will have a structured roadmap with a focus on those projects that will give you the most value.

ESG reporting

ESG Governance approaches

Sustainable development is impossible without the involvement of the board of directors. Effectiveness depends on a corporate governance structure that helps to take into account the interests of stakeholders, on the development of policies and the quality of ESG risk management.

How can we help?

We will help develop a sustainable governing system, including the development of an organisational structure, the distribution of roles and responsibilities, the development of internal policies and regulations.

Risk management
Integration of ESG risk management into the organisation's risk management system, which will help to adapt the strategy in the future which will be necessary for public disclosure.

A special workshop for senior managers will help with determining priorities in the sustainability area and with the development of a plan for further action.

Sustainable finance

The introduction of ESG principles into lending processes is becoming the main direction of sustainable development for commercial banks, since it is the portfolio of borrowers that represents the most significant impact of the bank on the economy, society and the environment.

How can we help?

Sustainable products
We help banks develop green and social products, including both lending and non-lending products. In particular, we develop criteria for sustainable products, support their design, and analyse market prospects.

Negative screening
We will support the preparation of industry statements and policies that describe the bank's restrictions on financing certain types of activities that do not comply with the bank's ESG principles. We will help with the classification of the portfolio by climate risks for reporting purposes and the subsequent development of sustainable financing practices.

ESG scoring
We will develop a system for evaluating borrowers according to ESG criteria, including an information request form, evaluation criteria and methodologies. We will also create a technical solution for effective assessment and management analytics.

Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD)

The EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is an incoming piece of regulation. It requires companies to make extensive, detailed disclosures about sustainability performance and related strategic implications. Disclosures are prescribed by European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS).

The ESRS are reporting standards for sustainability within the EU that cover a multitude of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) topics — including climate change, biodiversity, human rights, etc. The primary purpose of ESRS is to enable a simple and logical structure of sustainability information. The standards are an integral part of the CSRD and there are a comprehensive set of 12 ESRS in operation, with more in the pipeline.
