帮助您制定成功的ESG计划

近几个月来,关于环境,社会和治理(ESG)问题(ESG)问题提高和更具标准化的披露的披露的言论越来越大,但前方的道路仍然模糊。没有一定大小的ALL ESG计划,因为每个组织都面临独特的问题和风险。我们值得信赖的顾问团队提供了信息,可以帮助您定义ESG,解释其潜在影响,描述各种ESG框架,详细报告并开始构建程序。无论您是能源公司,一家投资公司还是两者之间的任何行业,我们都有专业知识来帮助您浏览ESG。

It’s clear that the demand for more information is not going away; however, many key questions need resolution:

  • 谁将制定规则?SEC,现有咨询小组还是新小组?
  • 它将是基于原则或规定的指导吗?
  • 哪里的信息appear—SEC filing and audited financial statements or freestanding reports?
  • 是否需要审计或保证?

The vast majority of the S&P 500 companies already voluntarily publish sustainability reports, but companies use a variety of reporting frameworks and standards. The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), and the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations are common examples, but there is no standard solution for all organizations. Ideally, a phased approach might be the best path forward to building your ESG program.

Read on to learn more about our approach orto get in touch with an advisor to begin building your ESG program today.

What exactly is ESG?

Environmental- 涵盖公司如何接触并管理与气候,自然资源稀缺,污染,废物和其他环境因素以及公司对环境的影响有关的风险和机会。

社会的- 包括有关公司价值和业务关系的信息。例如,社会主题包括劳动力和供应链信息,产品质量和安全性,人力资本主题,例如员工健康和安全以及多样性和包容性政策和努力。

Governance– Encompasses information about a company’s corporate governance. This could include information on the structure and diversity of the board of directors; executive compensation; critical event responsiveness; corporate resiliency; and policies and practices on lobbying, political contributions, and bribery and corruption.

If there’s any hard-and-fast rule, it’s that an ESG policy can’t be a document that gets written and then gathers dust. Investors will want to make sure that organizations are living up to the standards and practices they’ve developed. Investors are now applying similar scrutiny to ESG metrics as they do to financial metrics—scrutiny that managers need.

ESG Program Development

阶段1:评估

First, executive leadership must play an active role in defining what success looks like. In this phase, assessing the ESG concerns of your investors is critical, as well as identifying the risks, opportunities, and key performance indicators when selecting a reporting framework.

阶段2:设计

随着ESG计划开始成形,下一阶段涉及开发叙事和消息传递,识别数据源,帮助确保数据的可靠性,设计ESG报告,并为所有利益相关者制定通信计划,例如,投资者,客户,员工,监管机构和媒体。一旦完成,就该帮助确保报告的透明度并寻找有助于报告的技术解决方案。

阶段3:实施

接下来,是时候实施消息传递和通信计划了。请记住,投资者,客户,员工,监管机构和媒体代表您的利益相关者。这是ESG计划的高级计划和故意设计可以支付股息的部分。

第4阶段:监视器

在最后阶段,通过利益相关者的反馈来衡量和完善报告和消息传递至关重要。它需要持续的对话,以帮助确保计划应尽其所能。鉴于衡量ESG结果的模棱两可的性质以及对独立会计师事务所验证努力的第三方保证的需求不断增长,因此此阶段需要非常有意的监视(这不是“从远处观看”方法的时候)。

ESG评级分析

AM Best,S&P 500,Moody's和Fitch评级都在其评级方法中增加了ESG注意事项。我们可以帮助评估您的评分如何受到ESG考虑的影响。我们的顾问可以通过最有效地提高评级的方式来帮助确定改善ESG披露,政策和计划的机会。

ESG报告系统和控件

我们可以帮助建立与财务报告相同的ESG信息测量和报告的严格程度。有了重大的投资者对ESG信息的兴趣,该信息的可信度和可靠性至关重要。我们可以在您的组织中工作,以帮助评估数据源类型,建立报告政策,制定和记录数据收集的内部控制以及报告流程以帮助提供准确性和完整性。我们还可以进行准备评估以帮助准备保证。

ESG高管教育

我们的ESG专业人员可以为高管和董事会提供专业知识,以帮助解决您的部门和组织所独有的ESG问题。我们可以帮助定义ESG,解释是什么引起了ESG的兴趣,并讨论其潜在影响。我们还可以描述各种ESG框架,细节报告以及如何构建有效的ESG程序。

ESG投资流程

We can help establish policies and procedures to incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes. As ESG factors have increasingly been found to have a material impact on corporations’ financial performance, there is an increasing need for organizations to incorporate these factors into the management of their investments. We can help establish roles and responsibilities and approaches to ESG research and assist with incorporating ESG factors into investment strategies. We also can help develop ownership policies and practices to actively engage with investees on ESG topics.
