Helping organizations rewrite the sustainability equation with an ESG formula

Numerous components have accelerated ESG & Sustainability to the top of the agenda. Investors and stakeholders are increasingly demanding a compelling environmental, social, and governance (ESG) plan as well as a path to net-zero carbon emissions, regardless of the market or industry they are operating in.  International and national expectations for sustainability, net-zero economy and biodiversity protection rise where many organizations and NGOs are looking for clear guidelines.

We work with trailblazers to identify key actions needed that get them closer to sustainable way for the environment, workforce and corporate strategy. We will work with you to find solutions for all central variables in the sustainability equation. We will diagnose your current sustainability position, determine quantitative, qualitative baselines, and we will also monitor your way to make sure that you meet your objectives.

The Directive 2014/95/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 October 2014 amending Directive 2013/34/EU as regards disclosure of non-financial and diversity information by certain large undertakings and groups is the primary driver of the ESG & Sustainability movement across all sectors in the EU.

Applying the directive’s vital commitments now might demand a lot but a top of the mark assessment combined with a well-chosen strategy and commitment will allow your business to accelerate and to create a natural long lasting competitive advantage for future endeavours.

Examples of our work

Optimizing ESG performance in all sectors

We assisted the biggest Italian chemical company with an ESG due diligence audit for an office building in Poland. We benchmarked ESG performance against national standards, defined and communicated a set of features. We considered numerous activities such as building standards, environmental management, managing tenant sustainability impact, energy management, consumption and rating, energy-efficient system, greenhouse gases (GHGs), climate change, hazardous materials, indoor environmental quality, noise and acoustics, security and safety, transportation, waste management, water and wastewater management, biodiversity, and cultural heritage.

Evaluating and transforming to improve sustainability

We worked with one of the major Polish fuel producers and retailers to evaluate its reliance on fossil fuels and its impact on the environment in line with the clients standards on a par with ASTM E1527 standards to meet the high expectations of the client and investors calling for fast transition. We mapped out stakeholder expectations, measured and evaluated the client’s environmental performance across numerous scopes, identified green growth and HSE options, and designed a set of targets to correspond with local law.

Clearing a path to safe net-zero investments

We helped an Industrial Investor perform an ESG assessment for an Ice Cream Factory by assessing its entire operational model and value chain considering all sustainability aspects. We baselined the client’s environmental footprint and governance, identified and evaluated multiple areas such as UN Global Compact, ESG and Sustainability Management, Human Capital, and Environmental compliance.
