Whilst most ESG is box-ticking, our ESG practice is about value creation, with a view to creating sector leadership and growth. We do not focus on sustainability credentials alone, but also on the consumer, political and societal expectations around quality and standards.
Informed by our extensive understanding of political, regulatory and reputational impacts, we work with clients to understand and identify ESG risks and opportunities, and how best to address these.
With the investment community, our analysts work on both buy and sell mandates, and support clients throughout the investment cycle.
Businesses must comply with legislation, regulations, codes of conduct and quality standards. We go further, helping companies align with best practice and become leaders in their sector, shaping the regulatory environment around them and improving market-wide standards. Consideration of sustainability credentials alone is not enough – understanding and reacting to the consumer, political and societal expectations around quality and standards are essential for the progress of growing businesses.
Our in-house capabilities as a strategic communications agency with a public affairs function, and experience in political due diligence, uniquely positions us to understand and mitigate the potential political and regulatory impacts of ESG risks.
We are unique in providing ESG due diligence. We combine ESG and political insight and help firms integrate and communicate ESG.
We use ESG to help organisations become more resilient to political and regulatory risk – by helping them develop ESG policies, processes and initiatives that anticipate political and regulatory change.
We use our expertise in strategic communications to help organisations engage effectively on ESG with customers, employees, business partners, investors, politicians, regulators and campaigning organisations, etc.
