How we help our clients​

Companies that strategically address ESG outperform others both in terms of financial performance and non-financial measures, including client satisfaction, talent attraction, and innovation (Financial Times, 2018) .​

A comprehensive sustainability strategy enables a company to address environmental and social risks and to capitalize on the resulting commercial opportunities. To get there, a clear understanding of the complex and evolving policy, regulatory, and business environment issues is required, along with the ability to successfully translate these issues into clear business objectives.

Sustainable Finance is growing in popularity as asset owners look for investments that provide a financial return and generate measurable benefits for the environment and society. Increasingly, investors and companies are incorporating ESG risk and opportunities when making investment decisions and throughout the investment life-cycle to allocate and protect capital effectively.​

Customers, employees, investors, regulators, and the public are placing greater focus on ESG than ever before. This is leading to changes in the options available to corporate borrowers to raise capital – as well as in the way financial services players distribute it.​

Sustainable finance rewards those who perform well on ESG factors, enables lenders to comply with regulations while offering new products and gives more options to investors. ​

  • ESG due diligence​

As the global push toward decarbonization accelerates and the physical impacts of climate change play out across every continent, businesses are preparing for a low carbon future and are rising to stakeholder demands for better information on their progress and plans.


Climate change is causing economic transformation, led by fundamental business model change and a rethinking of what business as usual looks like. Helping clients develop a decarbonization strategy includes goal setting, navigating renewable energy sources, and carbon emission abatement and removal.​

Our services:​

  • Climate risk services (including scenario analysis)
  • Decarbonization services
  • Climate program management​
  • GHG footprint development
  • Software and data solutions​

Stakeholders – from regulators and investors to customers and the public – are putting ESG metrics and disclosures under increasing scrutiny. They want access to credible, verifiable, and comparable ESG metrics to support decisions on the areas that matter most to them. Meeting their expectations can mean going beyond mandatory requirements.​

Developing and managing a strategy for reporting on ESG is critical to demonstrate credibility to stakeholders, meet investor expectations, and lead among industry peers.

Organizations recognize the importance of providing stakeholders with confidence in the accuracy and completeness of the information contained in their corporate reporting, including annual reports and ESG, sustainability and climate reports. Traditionally only financial information was subject to independent assurance, but increasingly organizations are seeking assurance on a broad range of non-financial information including ESG key performance indicators (KPIs).​

We provide assurance to organizations across a wide range of sectors and a variety of assurance scopes, such as GHG verification and ISO & forestry certification.​
