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.

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.

Getting Your Facts Straight to Gain Investor Trust

The launch of the Antimicrobial Resistance Benchmark at this year's WEF in Davos, the introduction of a sugar tax to fight obesity, and the recent New York City lawsuit against five major oil companies for their contribution to climate change. These are just a few recent developments showing that managing externalities now have a clear business case. Today investors seek companies that demonstrate effective management of their most relevant ESG factors and focus on their issues that have a real impact. The time for storytelling is over.
