ESG and Sustainability Consultancy

Our understanding of climate risk is evolving, from growing physical climate hazards and the imperative to reach net zero, to our economic dependence on nature and working conditions in supply chains. The financial advantages of, and stakeholder preference for, ESG grows clearer by the day. With this growing focus on ESG and sustainability, along with increasing regulation, our experts will help you research, plan, act and report against the issues, frameworks and strategies that fit the unique needs of your organisation and built assets.

Understand the risks and opportunities

ESG action starts with understanding your material risks and opportunities, and your key impacts on society and the environment. We can support you with ESG assessment and research on a wide range of topics, tailored to your needs. Our capability encompasses materiality assessments, compliance support, cost impact analysis, climate risk assessment, carbon calculation, net zero scenarios and more.

Develop the right ESG strategy

Implementing ESG effectively means developing a strategy that is right for you. In addition to full adherence to relevant regulations or reporting frameworks, your strategy needs to reflect your sustainability goals and reportable data, and include achievable, impactful actions. Our experts can help you develop both corporate-wide strategies and detailed plans for individual assets.

Benchmark your ESG performance

ESG action is increasingly tied to formal reporting, governed by new regulations as well as binding internal governance. Our experts find the best ways to implement and report against the latest regulatory requirements, including the European Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), and leading frameworks such as the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) and the GRESB Real Estate Assessment.

Plan ESG action for buildings and real estate

Real estate assets, construction and the built environment are a central focus of ESG and key to reaching net zero emissions, protecting against extreme heat and other climate risks, and enhancing biodiversity. We can help you develop action-oriented and tailored strategies, whether for managing individual built assets or planning ESG action and reporting across your whole portfolio.
