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

Materiality Assessments and Stakeholder Engagement

ScottMadden can conduct surveys and interviews to identify material ESG issues requiring attention regardless of where you are in your ESG journey.

At ScottMadden, we understand carbon markets, carbon reporting, and issues associated with climate adaptation. We can help you understand your full emissions profile to establish a baseline and reduction target to meet your organization’s goals.

Integrated Resource Planning and Decarbonization Strategy

Sustainability Strategy, Planning, and Benchmarking
