ESG Consulting

As investors demonstrate a soaring interest in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)-related risks and opportunities, it is becoming essential for companies to identify and respond to their sustainability challenges. With over 20 years of experience, Finch & Beak helps corporate clients avoid this reporting trap by building effective sustainability strategies that focus on vital issues, by efficient use of ratings to drive sustainability performance, and by selecting the right ESG benchmarks to leverage their insights and significance.

Impact of Sharpened ESG Reporting Requirements

Non-financial reporting regulations are evolving at a high pace – especially in Europe. Spurred by the need to redirect finance towards achieving the EU Green Deal and the Paris Agreement, companies will have to become more transparent on their environmental and social impacts, and their strategy to mitigate ESG risks. But before you can ‘talk the walk’, you’ll need to figure out how to walk, and where towards. This article gives a brief overview of the implications of the most important European non-financial reporting requirements for companies operating in Europe, and how to get ready for them.

These have far-reaching implications for all financial market participants operating in Europe and may inspire other parts of the world to accelerate on the topic of sustainable finance.
