RAPIDO Service Platform: Increasing Impact with Less Effort

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 lean reporting that leaves time and budget available for doing the real work.

Balancing Richness and Reach for More Focused Reporting

Spurred by regulation and industry standards, more companies than ever are reporting on core ESG topics by publishing integrated or separate corporate sustainability reports. Simultaneously, 26 percent of global assets under management are managed under an ESG strategy. While investors are becoming stronger advocates for ESG disclosure, companies are struggling to find the balance between reporting too little or too much. Pro-active lean reporting combined with responding to relevant external ESG rating requests can help to resolve this dilemma.

Getting Your Facts Straight to Gain Investor Trust

The launch of the Antimicrobial Resistance Benchmark last week 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. It is now high time to have the data on issues in place in order to mitigate your business risks and to start seizing market opportunities.
