Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)

Across all industries, there is a heightened focus on how organizations address Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues. In response to an increased focus on metrics beyond traditional financial performance (e.g., carbon emissions, diversity of the workforce, etc.), many organizations are thinking about how best to embed ESG considerations into strategy and operations. As the universe of ESG issues is broad and continues to evolve, it is important that your organization ground any ESG efforts on those issues most material to your stakeholders.

ScottMadden can help you with identifying strategies that provide a competitive advantage while improving your ESG objectives and ensuring seamless integration into your overall organizational goals and business operations.

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Services

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and ESG Reporting

  • As investors and other stakeholders emphasize ESG metrics, organizations of all sizes are expected to disclose and manage their ESG-related risks. We have experience with SASB, GRI, and EEI reporting, and we can help you tell your sustainability story to investors, customers, and other key stakeholders.

Materiality Assessments and Stakeholder Engagement

  • To ensure that corporate strategy includes and meets the needs of stakeholders, organizations often leverage materiality assessments to help them engage with key stakeholders and inform their sustainability focus areas, goals, and initiatives. ScottMadden can help your organization engage internal and external stakeholders through surveys and interviews to identify material ESG issues, whether you are at the beginning of or years into your sustainability journey.

Carbon Accounting and Neutrality

At ScottMadden, we understand carbon markets, carbon reporting, and issues associated with climate adaptation. We can help you understand your full emissions profile, carbon-related business risks, and mitigation strategies.

Utility and Organizational Renewables Strategy

Integrated Resource Planning and Decarbonization Strategy

  • As utilities look to meet their decarbonization goals, determining how to incorporate strategies to reduce carbon (e.g., energy efficiency programs, renewables, battery storage, and other new technologies) into long-range planning will be key to meeting clean energy goals. ScottMadden has vast experience assisting utility clients of all sizes, and we can help your organization evaluate the strategic implications of portfolio changes, including financial and rate analysis.


  • Our clients report against multiple ESG-reporting frameworks and often find that sustainability benchmarking is difficult due to the lack of standardization in the industry.
