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.
 
Be good and tell it

Be Good & Tell It: The Status Quo of ESG Equity Stories

As investors increasingly integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria in their decision making processes, companies need to cater to this information need. Developing and transmitting a clear ESG Equity Story is key in this: communicating about the firm’s ESG approach and performance in a coherent and transparent manner toward investor audiences. Finch & Beak has assembled a pilot benchmark as a probe for the current status quo, assessing 21 companies’ sustainability programs (‘Be Good’) and their ESG Equity Stories (‘Tell It’). A striking finding is that companies appear to engage in ESG ‘greywashing’ (antonym of greenwashing), by underleveraging their ESG performance in the communication towards investor audiences.

ESG Transparency: Balancing Proactive and Reactive Reporting

Even though the surge for consolidation of ESG ratings further accelerated in 2020, companies are still stating to be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of ESG information requests they receive from capital markets. And as more than $1tn in total assets under management in funds are now abiding by ESG principles, investors’ needs for credible ESG information are not likely to slow down. Companies stand to benefit from taking a balanced approach between proactively driving their ESG Equity Stories forward while reactively responding to the ESG ratings that are most relevant to them in terms of richness and reach.
