Europe has opted for a sustainable economy. More than ever, companies will have to demonstrate their positive impact on the environment (E) and society (S). They are required to create a framework for these interactions with good governance (G).
A major package of new ESG legislation is scheduled for implementation in the short term. This will require more companies to provide more details on demonstrable sustainability. Our specialists are ready to advise and guide you on this matter. Among other things, we offer you:
- A proper understanding of the timing and the real impact of new laws and regulations
- Alignment of your activities with the regulations that are applicable to you
- A tailored, pragmatic approach that guides your sustainability ambitions and projects
- Integrated, non-financial reporting in accordance with European regulations and standards
- An independent audit (assurance) of your non-financial reporting
Our service provision for sustainable companies
A modular service package tailored to the maturity of your organization. We get rid of the complexity and guide you through the preparation of analyses, strategy, project planning and reporting. We act as a sounding board that helps develop your business.
Information sessions and training that lay the groundwork for you and your employees. We answer basic questions, such as ... What does ESG mean in concrete terms? What is its impact and importance for my organization? When do the new regulations come into force for my company? Are there any benefits to reporting if I am not obliged to? How do I get started?
Together we assess your current position. Our ESG scan provides insights into risks and areas of concern as well identifying potential opportunities. You can also opt for an in-depth analysis in which we draw up your materiality matrix in accordance with the EU regulations. This will tell you exactly which ESG aspects are significant for your company, resulting in a list of priorities for further action. The ESG scan is a valuable tool for determining risk in valuations, mergers and acquisitions (M&A).
Complete guidance that takes a comprehensive look at your strategy and sustainability ambitions. Drawing on entrepreneurial experience, we offer you a sounding board that helps develop your business. So you can count on a tangible project plan with coherent, pragmatic steps. Let us turn your ambitions into economic competitiveness and sustainable added value.
We tackle one or more aspects of your sustainability policy, set a desired end goal and get to work within an improvement plan for issues such as your carbon footprint, energy reduction and transition, sustainability of buildings, circular economy, employer branding, diversity and inclusion, wellbeing and health, good governance processes and more.
Reporting and data exchange
We guide companies that are obliged to report so that they can produce a verifiable, non-financial report in accordance with the regulations. Companies that act as suppliers and need to provide data to their major customers can also come to us. For them, we set up data management and data exchange in compliance with the new European standards.
During an independent assurance, we check whether a report and the data are complete and assembled in a consistent and reliable manner.
