The first step in an ESG journey is to level set and develop your strategy. Begin by identifying your material ESG issues, measuring your current ESG (including climate/GHG) performance, and assessing your long-term exposure to climate risk. Then, set ESG goals, assess the financial impact of achieving those goals, and develop a roadmap for improving ESG performance and embedding ESG into your operating model.
Understanding your current state is critical to developing an impactful ESG program. Our ESG Maturity Assessment evaluates the effectiveness of your ESG strategy and provides focused insights to guide your ESG journey.
