Which ESG risks should I act on now, and what is coming over the horizon?
Every financial services business we advise is in a different position with regards to ESG, but some ESG risks are common to many. So we've pulled together the most succinct, easy to use, interactive ESG 'risk radar' for our clients, which identifies 4 or 5 specific key risks for banks; asset managers; insurers; and listed companies. Each risk summary can be read in less than 60 seconds, and we signpost those risks that warrant advance planning versus those that might require immediate intervention. Three example reasons why this tool is helpful to our clients include:
1. Tracking the myriad, ever-changing ESG disclosure requirements – since it takes time to develop the operational systems to gather the required ESG data
2. Putting the right governance structure in place – since management and the Board are expected to set the tone from the top
3. And effectively scanning the horizon for emergent issues
The tool is free to all financial service institutions and companies, with no onwards obligations – please just let us know if you would like a copy.Get a copy of the tool
