Protect your reputation, comply with standards

Being linked to controversial environmental and human rights issues may lead to financial losses, reputational damage, regulatory sanctions or litigation.

We support risk management and compliance units to assess potentially controversial clients, transactions, corporate partnerships and other business relationship. We also provide assessments at the level of countries or sectors.

Risk assessments are often a time-critical task. We offer quick turnaround times and deliverables that you can use immediately, with templates and concepts tailored to your business processes.

What we do:

We assess potentially controversial companies, sectors, and countries.

  • Reputational risk assessments for transactions in sensitive sectors, such as palm oil and mining, or involving controversial products, such as weapons or food commodities, in various countries. These assessments cover all types of transactions, potential and existing client relationships and partnerships, as well as equity and debt investments.
  • Strategies to address the controversial aspects of a transaction appropriately, mitigate negative impacts and reputational risks.
  • Strategy papers to support financial institutions in the assessment of reputational risks, for example when financing companies in sensitive countries or when investing in sensitive sectors.
  • Country risk briefing notes on reputational risks related to environmental and sociopolitical issues in a specific country.
