Sustainability & ESG Compliance

Building Performance within the ESG Landscape

Stakeholders are increasingly scrutinizing environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance—and looking for companies to rise to the challenge of delivering ESG improvements.

It is becoming increasingly expected, or required by law, that companies produce ESG performance reports that adhere to finance-grade standards, to satisfy corporate investors, and industry, and country governing bodies.

Yet implementing real-world models for governance is just beginning for many organizations, which is why we provide customized advisory on ESG environments for clients across Asian markets, assisting clients in developing their global strategies, together with local execution to help deliver guidance on ESG strategy through to complete ESG compliance and reporting systems.

Our ESG Advantage

How we help companies realize their sustainability goals

We help achieve alignment between your corporate goals, international standards, and effective management capabilities, tailored to specific regional contexts, covering environmental, social, and governance factors including:

Taking an ERP view of carbon use at each step of your supply chain, target areas for the greatest carbon-reduction opportunities and tracking the transformation’s progress in your organization.

Develop optimized routes to review the cost efficiency of the energy and resources consumed in manufacturing and other areas and leverage new sources to create emission-free and waste-free plants.

Build plans to assess and report your greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and carbon footprint, based on GHG protocol, embodied carbon, avoided emissions, and methane tracking.

Identify and assess potentially disruptive events and changing conditions, planning for risks and opportunities posed by these long- trends, and mitigating and/or adapting from the impacts of these stressors and shocks in an efficient manner.
