Comprehensive peer analysis highlighting current ESG reporting versus a set of selected industry peers, providing a full overview and set of recommendations that effectively result in an improvement in the quality of ESG disclosures and thereby ESG ratings.

We are a world leading global risk advisory organisation. This means our reporting practice can not only bring to bear deep expertise in ESG data and reporting, but it is supported by in-house climate change scientists, human rights legal experts and supply chain specialists. As such, the value and insight we deliver extends far beyond the ESG reporting cycle.
We appreciate that ESG reporting can be a daunting prospect: the so-called ‘alphabet soup’ of voluntary ESG reporting standards and frameworks, ESG ratings, competing stakeholder disclosure requests and upcoming ESG reporting regulation can be difficult to navigate. Our comprehensive approach – starting with an extensive gap analysis and a structured materiality assessment process – can help you plan more effectively and to cut through much of the noise and focus on what matters most to you and your stakeholders. This includes helping you identify and understand the right external standards for your organisation.
Reporting is not just a management outcome. Much of the true value is realised when the sustainability reporting cycle is integrated into a multi-year, strategic approach. We can help you to leverage this process to drive valuable strategic dialogue, identify and action areas for improvement, provide executive level ESG reporting training, conduct stakeholder engagement, and enhance multiple aspects of the ESG reporting journey.
We can work with you to apply our multi-phase, quantitatively scored and qualitative supported materiality assessment process. This will enable you to identify and prioritise your most significant ESG impacts, integrate internal and external stakeholder feedback, and focus your reporting strategy and management activity where it matters most.
Integrated reporting is often a multi-year process. This journey won’t look the same for any one company, but we can work with you to develop your own bespoke roadmap for integration. Not only will this help you to develop a clear and integrated narrative explaining how your organisation creates value – but it will ultimately drive integrated thinking and decision making to help support long-term value creation.
