The Investment world is changing fast. Sustainability and ESG metrics are going mainstream, as business executives and investors alike see the importance of developing better informed perspectives on how key ESG risks and opportunities can impact investment decision-making.
This is no fad. There is now a clear and direct link between a company’s ESG performance and business performance. ESG-focused companies are out-performing in their markets – delivering, on average, double the amount of shareholder value, over the long-term.
Yet, there are many issues and challenges. Are ESG factors really changing investment decisions? How much ESG activity leads to real and authentic impacts for a better world? And, quite importantly, are ESG strategies actually generating long-term value for investors? There are also major accusations of greenwashing.
ESG metrics provide the data, but this is just the start of the journey: the real challenge concerns what we do next. For us, ESG isn’t simply about passive monitoring and divesting of poor performers, but more about developing proactive strategies for turning around under-performing assets, in order to generate superior impacts and long-term value.
We help companies and investors cut through the noise and move beyond tactical checklists, to engage more deeply on ESG and BEYOND – developing new insights and strategies to deliver superior impacts and long-term value. Our forensic approach enables you to uncover hidden opportunities for genuine transformation, enabling the development of resilient, sustainable, high-performing investments:
