Using Vectoring to Fast-Forward Your ESG Activities

European temperatures in the past summer months were not as exceptional as some might think. According to the UN weather agency, CO2 levels are at their highest in the last 650,000 years, and so are the average temperatures, with the world’s nine warmest years all having occurred since 2005, and the five warmest since 2010. With the battle for sustainability heating up, companies and executives need to develop a new sense of urgency, moving it from the realm of compliance to that of a key driver of performance and innovation, which requires embedding it deeply into their core strategies.

New DJSI MSA Methodology

New DJSI MSA Methodology Shakes Up 2018 Results

The impact of this change is extremely significant in terms of both industry and company absolute scores. In this article we summarize the most important changes and how to explain this to your board.

Dow Jones Sustainability Index Readiness Assessment

The summer months are an ideal time to reflect upon a busy start of the year and start planning ahead for 2019. When in full reporting mode, you may run out of time and come across issues in your Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) process that you are not able to deal with at that very moment. For those eager to plan ahead and looking to maximally benefit from your participation, we've developed a comprehensive Readiness Assessment for (future) participants of the DJSI.

RAPIDO: More tangible results from your sustainability strategy

The avalanche of reporting requirements, benchmarks and ratings calls for more focused and aligned disclosures, and smarter lean reporting solutions. In order to progress towards sustainability leadership, Finch & Beak believes the focus has to be on turning strategy into action. This is why RAPIDO was born: an integrated service platform for strategy development that promotes lean reporting and leaves time and budget available for transformative change and impact.

Lean Materiality Matrix 'Re-Fresh' Using Big Data

The materiality matrix has become a familiar sight in corporate reporting, representing a selection of topics that generate impact on the company and that are relevant to its stakeholders. Traditionally, full materiality assessments are conducted involving internal and external stakeholders in an elaborate process. But, today’s turbulent business environment requires a more frequent and agile approach, monitoring sustainability risks and opportunities around the clock. Finch & Beak’s Re-Fresh Materiality Assessment guarantees an annual update of your materiality matrix within 4 weeks by using a big data analysis on corporate reporting trends from Datamaran Benchmark, as well as big data from Bloomberg and CDP, among others.

DJSI and CDP: Real Impact from Benchmarking

The demand from investors and institutions for ESG information increasingly puts pressure on companies. However, reporting activities often take up much time at the expense of creating real impact. As a European expert we see a lot of value in actively engaging in the leading ESG-benchmarks such as DJSI and CDP, but at the same time the struggle that companies have to leverage all the efforts they have put into filling out the (sometimes very demanding) questionnaires.
