ESG & Sustainability Reports

We offer a cost effective solution for companies (and not-for-profit organisations) that want or need to produce a document that evidences their organisation’s ESG and Sustainability credentials. This serves a number of purposes, including evidencing to employees, stakeholders and investors, the current position and future aspirations of an organisation, including providing a roadmap for positive change over the next 12 months.

ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Governance and refers to the three key factors when measuring the sustainability and ethical impact of a business . These are called pillars in ESG frameworks and represent the three main topic areas that companies are expected to report on.

The first goal of an ESG report is to report on the hopefully positive steps taken by an organisation in relation to these three pillars and to record both qualitative and quantitative data to support the narrative. The secondary remit is to capture all the non-financial risks and opportunities inherent to a company’s day to day activities. An ESG report will quantify this into one document that can be used for a range of purposes.

Investors, regulators, as well as consumers and employees are now increasingly demanding that companies should not only be good stewards of capital but also of natural and social capital and have the necessary governance framework in place to support this and an ESG report is the best way to do so.

Our report will look at the three pillars of E, S and G separately from each other as if they are independent and then will bring them together to look at the overall performance of the company, focusing on the priority areas where the company can and does a make real impact.

Sustainability is slightly different from having good ESG, although  intrinsically linked, it is broad, intersectional, and complex, and is based on the relationship between the company and the environment. Sustainability reporting is more focused on the positive (and sometimes negative) environmental or social outcomes and looking at wider issues rather than the internal reporting of an ESG framework.

In relation to sustainability and the impact a company is making, our report will consider how well the company’s activities comply with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Change and how actively these are being addressed.

Our evaluation of a company’s ESG and sustainability will take a holistic approach which assesses the impact of the organisation from top to bottom i.e. from the leadership downwards and throughout the organisation and then out into the wider community. We will consider the documentation and data provided by the company, will conduct video interviews with the key members of the board, senior management team and employees and we will collect data as required to measure the impact.

This style of report is suitable for small and medium sized organisations who are not subject to statutory reporting requirements. Although not specifically designed to comply with the EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD), or Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), it contains much of the required disclosures to comply and can be used as a basis for mandatory reporting.
