We develop customized regulatory implementation strategies that align with your institution’s priorities and needs.
The first binding regulations deriving from the EU Action Plan on Sustainable Finance demand that financial institutions adapt a series of policies, management processes, marketing materials, and disclosure processes by 2021.
We support risk management and compliance units in establishing the necessary frameworks to conduct environmental and human rights due diligence and risk assessments. We also assess potentially controversial companies, countries, and sectors.
The G7, OECD, and the United Nations expect corporations to address and avoid adverse impacts in their business relationships and investments. Being linked to environmental and human rights issues may lead to financial losses, reputational damage, regulatory sanctions, or even litigation.
We help you to identify criteria in line with international and national standards and determine your unique tolerance to risk as an asset owner, lender, or underwriter.
We screen client portfolios as well as equity and debt portfolios consisting of both listed and non-listed entities.
Screening investment and client portfolios for environmental and human rights risks is no longer a matter of personal preference and values. Regulation requires financial institutions to assess potentially controversial companies they invest in or support.
We conduct market-leading research and provide advice to support our clients in addressing strategic questions such as:
Our input allows clients to efficiently develop their sustainable finance and/or corporate responsibility strategies—and operate the corresponding management systems.
