ESG investor analysis
Exclusionary screening, positive selection, ESG integration and impact investment. The investor community is increasingly being asked to interrogate ESG performance. What does this look like for companies and investors alike?
Climate change scenario analysis + reporting
Climate change is happening, we just don’t know how much! By understanding climate scenarios, organisations can understand the different physical and transitional risks they face, and how to report these to their stakeholders, including the investor community.
Executive/board ESG + climate training
Boards and executive committees are expected to hold expertise on ESG. Who is asking for this? How much information do they need? To whom to they report this?
