ESG & Responsible Investing

for Corporates

In today’s rapidly changing world, environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors present material risks for businesses.

Key stakeholders, including customers and prospective investors, have become increasingly aware of these risks—and the opportunities they offer. Accordingly, the adoption of ESG policies and initiatives by both private and exchange-listed companies has become a major global trend.

Our experts can help your company formulate, adopt and integrate ESG factors into your business activities to better manage risk and deliver competitive long-term investment performance.

An effective ESG program meets customer demands and attracts investments to your enterprise. At the same time, it helps you manage risk while driving long-term value. As the spectrum of ESG information-reporting methods continues to rapidly evolve, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. However, international and local best practices, guidelines and frameworks are emerging. Our specialists will design an ESG program tailored to your needs—we will:

  • Conduct materiality assessments
  • Incorporate SASB standards into disclosure processes
  • Identify the most practical framework, standards and/or principles for you to adopt, based on the size, nature and complexity of your business, as well as your specific stakeholder requirements
  • Identify and leverage existing ESG initiatives
  • Perform an ESG gap analysis that maps ESG practices to mandates
  • Develop a framework and key performance indicators to track and report ESG management performance and goals.

Services include:
