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 trainings for you and your employees. We answer basic questions such as... what does ESG mean in concrete terms? What is the impact and importance for my organization? What is the relationship with the SDGs? When do the new regulations come into force for my company? Is it interesting to report if I am not required to? How do I get started?
Together, we assess your ESG position. Our ESG scan provides insight into risks, areas of concern and identifies possible opportunities. You can also opt for an in-depth analysis in which we draw up your materiality matrix according to EU regulations. This will tell you exactly which ESG aspects are material-significant for your company, resulting in a priority list for further actions. The ESG scan is also a very valuable tool as a risk assessment in valuations and mergers and acquisitions (M&A).
A guidance that looks at your strategy and sustainability ambitions holistically. Based on entrepreneurial experience, we offer you a sounding board that helps you develop your business. You can count on a tangible project plan in a coherent and pragmatic approach. Let us turn your ambitions into competitiveness and sustainable added value.
We tackle one or more aspects of your sustainability mission. We set a desired goal and get to work within an improvement process for issues such as your carbon footprint, energy reduction and transition, real estate sustainability, circular economy, employer branding, diversity and inclusion, wellbeing and health, corporate governance processes and more.
Reporting and data exchange
We guide companies that need to produce a compliant non-financial report. Other companies in their role as a supplier might be asked to provide sustainability data as well. For them, we set up data management and data exchange compliant with the new European standards.
During independent assurance, we verify whether the report and the data are complete and constructed in a consistent and reliable way.
