Strategic & Reputation Risk
With the world facing so many different issues, organisations are looking for ways to reduce the space that they need for their social and ecological footprint while creating value for all of their stakeholders. Deloitte can help you attain insight in your strategic non-financial topics and help you create and preserve value for your organisation and all affiliated by it.
As a result of climate change, an increasing scarcity of resources and all their consequences, organisations stand for challenges never faced before. If approached in the right way, these challenges can be an opportunity instead of a threat to your organisation. Look for example at all the successful companies that are focusing on energy transition or on the circular economy where waste products are the new gold.
As a business leader you know that your future success—and with that the continuity of your business—will depend on the decisions that you make today. So the question is: how can you reduce the space that your organisation currently needs for its social and ecological footprint and at the same time create value for all your stakeholders? How do you make the right decisions that will create and preserve value in the future?
We can help you answer these questions by enabling you to manage and measure your non-financial impacts and engage in long-term value creation through four specific sets of services:
- Define strategy and objectives
We help organisations determine their current performance and define their desired direction. We also facilitate defining their value creation strategy. We can also provide insights into the current impact that your organisation has on its stakeholders and business environment and advise you how to enhance these impacts, taking new developments such as the UN Global Goals into account.
- Comply and rely
Reporting non-financial information is the core business of Deloitte’s Sustainability Team. We can also act as external assurance provider for the non-financial information (including sustainability related information) in your external reporting. Our GRI Global Gold membership ensures that we are always up to speed on the latest developments and that we can provide you with in-depth information on the GRI guidelines.
- Determine KPIs and remain in control
We assist you in defining robust non-financial KPIs, setting target values and designing your data processes, and integrating them in the ‘three lines of defense’ to ensure data quality.
- Communicate and progress
We help our clients by organising, conducting or improving their stakeholder dialogue and define their report content on the basis of its outcomes. In our approach, traditional sustainability aspects are taken into account as well as less traditional strategic issues such as innovation, employment and indirect impact.
In each of the services listed above, we combine our in-depth knowledge of non-financial topics and internal and external reporting with an integral organisational approach. Our industry expertise and international network ensures that we can tailor-make solutions to complex challenges both on a national and an international scale.
