The analysis, measurement and improvement of social, economic and environmental (ESG) impact is more important than ever and businesses are increasingly expected to take a lead on societal and sustainability issues.
Impact can be assessed at the level of a company, an investment, a project or a sector. Such evaluation is an important tool in strategy, project implementation, regulatory advocacy, staff motivation and reputation management.
We are leaders in developing frameworks, tools and strategies that enhance sustainability and impact. Our expertise spans ESG, sustainability, net zero strategies, economic impact assessments, impact due diligences, ESG capacity building, and regulatory intervention design.
