Understanding and Managing Strategic ESG Issues

We provide a unique, structured process to help you understand and prioritize strategic ESG actions. Our approach typically involves:

  • Identifying and prioritizing critical ESG issues relevant to your business
  • Monitoring current events that impact identified issues
  • Advising on strategic and tactical options to address issues, develop policies, procedures, resolutions, and to demonstrate ESG leadership
  • Providing background on emerging issues that are gaining momentum

Understanding the UN SDGs

There are 17 SDGs with 169 specific underlying targets, and an even greater number of key performance indicators. The SDGs call on the world's business and investment communities to apply their creativity and innovation to help solve sustainability challenges.
