Our holistic approach to decarbonisation facilitates your business’s transition to a low-carbon economy through data collection, analysis, strategy development, and implementing a carbon governance framework.

Our approach includes four essential steps.

  1. Measurement: We help collect the data that you need to calculate Scope 1, 2, and 3 of carbon emissions in your business.
  2. Interpretation: We assist turning the carbon data into meaningful business insights. For instance, from reviewing your carbon data we can discover carbon emission hotspots.
  3. Strategy: We help transform carbon insights into practical recommendations such as buying (or avoiding) certain products or services.
  4. Governance: We help develop systems and structures that define, drive, and oversee decarbonisation in your business.

Circular Economy

All businesses must prepare for a circular economy, one which generates minimal waste. Success in this economy depends on three main factors: (1) the technology or method used for product circulation, (2) the effectiveness and resilience of the
circular business model, and (3) stakeholder engagement in the circular economy space.

Given this context, we offer three key services to support your transition to a circular economy.

  1. Circular Technology: We help you identify the best technology for your circular economy needs. For instance, by conducting a multi-criteria assessment on best available technologies considering relevant social, economic, and environmental criteria.
  2. Circular Business Model: We develop and test practical circular business models for your circular economy technology, considering productivity, resilience and other factors.
  3. Stakeholder Engagement: We create engaging stakeholder programs to help you communicate

sustainability governance

Sustainabilty Governance

In our view, sustainability governance is an important prerequisite for sustainability improvement in any organisation. Such governance helps define, drive, and oversee sustainability changes in a systematic and structured way. It also ensures adequate integration of sustainable practices into the decision-making processes and operations of the organisation, creating long-term value for its stakeholders while minimising its negative environmental and social impacts.

Our approach includes four essential steps.

1. Sustainability Metrics: We identify aspects of your business important to the key sustainability pillars of people, planet, and prosperity.

2. Sustainability Framework: We help define your company’s sustainability vision, values, and goals in a conceptual structure called Sustainability Framework.

3. Sustainability Policy: We help develop a statement outlining your commitment and strategy towards sustainability.

4. Sustainability Strategy: We assist in creating a prioritised list of strategic sustainability actions that will elevate the social, economic, and environmental performance of your business.

financial risk

Climate-Related Financial Risks

Financial markets increasingly demand businesses to publish clear, comprehensive, quality information on the potential impacts of climate change on their respective financial stability.

Many corporations currently publish their climate-related financial risks using a globally recognised reporting framework called the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). Signals from governments including the Australian Government indicate that the demand for reporting climate-related financial risks may become mandatory in the future for certain corporations.

We provide a broad and diverse range of climate risk advisory services including:

  1. Physical Risks: We help identify the risks resulting from climate events on your business.
  2. Transitional Risks: We help identify your risks of the transition to a low-carbon economy.
  3. Mitigation: We help you effectively mitigate your climate-related financial risks.
  4. Disclosure: We help you disclose both your climate risks and the related mitigation strategies.

Demonstrated sustainability performance is recognised and rewarded when achieving various levels of the increasingly common Sustainability Rating Schemes, such as those developed in Australia by the Infrastructure Sustainability Council and Green Building Council of Australia. Our environmental and sustainability specialists can guide and assist you through the planning, record keeping, and submission processes associated with these applications.
