ESG Frameworks

The ESG reporting market can be very complex. ESG Impact can help you report on ESG at a corporate level, understand asset level risks, and reduce your carbon footprint. We will help you create a pathway to impact, measured against the SDGs, carbon neutrality, and identify material ESG risks.

Identify key issues & drivers
Why is embedding sustainability important to my organisation? What are the internal and external drivers? What are my organisation’s material relevant sustainability issues?​

Develop strategy
What does good practice look like for each material issue? What broad strategies can be implemented to achieve this?

Establish governance & accountability
Who does what to deliver these broad strategies per material issue?

Set targets & action plan
Where do we want to be in ‘x’ number of years? What concrete actions or activities do we need to achieve the targets? Which of our existing initiatives can we include in the action plan to help deliver our targets?​

Monitor, report & evaluate
How have we performed so far? Are our processes working?
