Preparing your organisation for the circular economy

Consumer demand, investor interest, shareholder activism, an evolving regulatory landscape and emerging compliance are the key drivers our clients have for developing their management of social, environmental and economic Sustainability risks. At the Board room level, strong investment in Sustainability is demonstrating to stakeholders a firm commitment to maintaining relevance and placing your organisation as a leader.

Our team support clients with their most complex problems, from diversity in the workplace, to complying with regulations; from climate change to energy optimisation; from identifying your material risks to developing a strategy, we have a proven track record bringing together our global network of subject matter experts to deliver a bespoke service.

Responsible Investment

As Sustainability emerges as an operational, reputational and financial risk to organisations across all industries, understanding what is material, how to form a strategy, when to perform due diligence and what data should be analysed has never been so important. We support our clients by advising on risks due to market changes, compliance and governance. Understanding how sustainability intersects your value chain is imperative to maintaining your place in the market and growth in the circular economy.

Energy and Carbon

A significant, growing and often unmanaged element of our client’s bottom line, energy and carbon management represents a complex operational challenge, due to climate change and the potential for further regulation as a result of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement – COP21. Our service offering ranges from analysis of long term price, demand and supply risks, to assist with your management, through to preparation of your annual carbon disclosures to support measurement.

Human Rights

Since the release of the UN Guiding Principles on Human Rights, company leaders have recognised Human Rights as a critical risk, due to the potential for labour and welfare rights’ violations through to supply chain risks from second and third tier partnerships. We specialise in supporting our clients with regulations and compliance, such as the UK Modern Slavery Act (2015), conducting assessments, internal investigations and implementing prevention programs.

Independent Assurance

From increasing regulatory requirements to risk or brand management, companies are increasingly publishing information on non-financial issues in annual and other public reports. The assurance process drives improvements in the reliability and quality of information to aid decision-making. We have a proven robust track record of assessing the ‘assurance readiness’ of your sustainability data, providing improvement recommendations to increase confidence and independent assurance services, applying a risk based, value adding, approach in accordance with ISAE (3000) revised, AA1000, GRI G4, and other international or custom built frameworks.
