The right ESG strategy helps create value

Incorporating the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) aspects of conducting business into corporate reporting cycles is becoming an essential element to financial and organisational performance measures.

But what is ESG?

ESG is is shorthand for the standards of behaviour expected by an organisation's key stakeholders. We help you implement an ESG strategy, that protects and creates long-term value across stakeholder groups; both internal and external.  

The benefits of developing strong ESG strategies will reduce operational and financial/investment risks, boost employee engagement and improve social licence to operate.

 

Building an authetic ESG program is as unique as your business

Drawing upon our people, place, and social expertise, our experts partner with you to identify, develop and execute an integrated, values-driven program that best communicates your story to your stakeholders.

We start with understanding your ESG factors

Environmental factors can include climate change (such as carbon neutrality and use of renewable energy), water management and waste and pollution management and stewardship of the natural environment. 

Social factors are those relating to human and economic rights, for example the rights of First Nations peoples, workers employment rights and their safety and wellbeing, diversity and inclusion, consumer protections and fair trade. 

Governance is an organisation’s decision-making process and culture.  Matters such as risk management, data protection, anti-corruption and bribery, supply chain transparency and legal compliance are commonly considered in this context.  Hallmarks of good governance are transparency, accountability and ethical practice.
