Sustainability Risk Management Advisory Services

Reducing risk, increasing value

Sustainability risks—such as environmental, social, and governance related risks—continue to emerge as strategic risks. Our Sustainability Risk Management Advisory Services help clients take another look at their core business through a sustainability lens, find new ways to lead, navigate, and disrupt by transforming operations and investments, and create long-term value to accelerate performance.

Sustainability Risk Management Advisory

Sustained and high-quality performance depends, in part, on effective measurement, management, and disclosure of relevant metrics. Non-financial metrics and related information, such as those used to evaluate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance, can effectively complement financial metrics and reporting.

Our practitioners bring a detailed understanding of non-financial data and marketplace expectations for timely, reliable, and accurate reporting. We have experience assisting clients with:

  • Establishing efficient sustainability reporting programs
  • Providing external and internal assurance on sustainability data
  • Assisting with conflict minerals filings

Our Sustainability Risk Management Advisory Services include:

  • Materiality assessment
  • Reporting readiness and assurance readiness
  • Assurance (both internal and external) on sustainability reports, greenhouse gas statements, and other non-financial information
  • Environmental health and safety services
  • Anti-human trafficking and forced labor compliance program implementation and gap analysis
  • Conflict minerals compliance gap analysis, program implementation and assurance readiness, and independent audit
  • Climate risk services
  • Supply chain sustainability
