Amidst the ever-growing risks of not considering the wider ESG mandate, many overlook the opportunities this affords companies in the continuous struggle for access to the best talent, partners, customers – the list goes on. For many, the hardest question to answer is ‘where do I start?’.
Our process is rigorous, easy to follow, and focuses on the quality of the inputs, so the reporting outputs are meaningful, in line with our purpose of making business understandable. Our offering is simple, clear, and provides options for you to choose based on your needs.
We review your external environment, assess your communications as a whole and compare this to your peers. Utilising this valuable information can identify where you can gain competitive advantage, alongside a strong sustainability proposition and also provides clear direction moving forward.
Put simply: what matters most to your organisation and your stakeholders? We look at your most vital stakeholders and survey their views on the issues facing your company and industry, to understand which are most important to them. Running the same process with you provides clarity on the issues that matter most to you and your stakeholders.
Using your material issues, we then develop your sustainability strategy, focused on the key areas you want to positively work towards. This strategy can work in relation to your corporate strategy in the following ways:
With so many frameworks to choose from, each with their own agenda and focus, we believe that the selection of frameworks and metrics should be led by the aims and objectives of your sustainability strategy. It is, therefore, more meaningful to report on frameworks that align with your strategy.
We look at the best way to maximise the impact of your reporting beyond just the annual report. We consult with you on the best way to structure and display this on your website, in addition to wider stakeholder communications such as the creation of a separate ESG report.
Continuing to monitor your progress and develop your strategy year-on-year will strengthen your sustainability proposition for the long term. Things change, however, and the issues most material now may not be the same in the future. We can re-evaluate at intervals to ensure your strategy is aligned and fit for purpose.
Communicating clearly and transparently with your stakeholders across a variety of mediums.
Establishing your purpose and building from strong foundations.
