ESG integration

Create value through responsible investment

ESG investment is booming

ESG investment is booming, and financial services firms are increasingly realising the advantages of embedding sustainability and their role in optimising economic performance.

Today, ESG investments make up a significant proportion of the world’s professionally managed assets, totalling trillions of dollars. And that amount is growing every year.

This boom has considerable knock-on impacts to the finance world:

  • Regulation is becoming more comprehensive and specific, with mandatory compliance with disclosure frameworks, such as the Task Force on Climate-Related Disclosures (TCFD) and the Sustainability Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR).
  • Enhanced risk with ESG factors such as human rights and natural resource use now treated as material risks when evaluating the prospects and health of a company
  • Corporate responsibility is evolving, with ESG management increasingly seen as a critical component of long-term financial returns
  • Reputation which can be bolstered by ESG disclosure – is at risk if companies cannot back up their sustainability claims with data and facts

Our typical ESG integration projects have two stages:
