    Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)

    Understanding areas of risk related to environmental, social and governance issues has been a topic of discussion among leadership teams and boards for years, but the current business landscape has escalated this topic. Every organization now needs to have formal plans to address the call for sustainable operations, increased inclusivity and governance. Shareholder and stakeholders’ inquiries and actions have dramatically escalated risk that can impact business reputation and value.

    Value-based investing is here to stay.

    High profile situations like consumer boycotts make headlines, but they are only the tip of the iceberg. The workforce and investor communities have made it clear that value-based decisions have become the norm for a large percentage of our society. Consider these facts:

    For many businesses, especially real estate companies, the opportunity to reduce environmental impact is top-of-mind. But how do you measure impact in a meaningful way? And how do you report on progress?

Our team can help you arrive at metrics that are both meaningful and measurable to help you communicate to your constituents how your company is reducing environmental impact.
