There is no "back to normal"

 

 

The new normal is a resilient and inclusive corporate sustainability.

Any corporate strategy developed over the next five years will actually be a sustainability strategy, integrating ESG into business decision making and with leaders considering all stakeholders.

Why?

The trends and the expected societal context are:

  • Recognition for authentic company purpose

  • ESG performance transparency

  • Increasing investors caution on sustainability materiality

  • Brand premium for those doing well by being good

  • Amplified consumer activism (Gen Z)

  • Climate change impacts collective mitigation efforts

Furthermore

Despite a massive inflow on ESG funds investments in 2020, the world of ESG investing is not all rosy:

  • Complex nature of ESG investors choices

  • Sometimes contradictory and flawed rating systems

  • Fears of “greenwashing”

  • Reporting traps

ESG investments, rating systems

Therefore

For companies, the best preparation is to have their Sustainability Strategy designed and embedded into their core business.

We support companies in this journey.

Addressing the 3 Reporting traps

  • Evolving from "reporting on impacts" to "how to create value"

  • Adapting from voluminous reports to Less is More

  • Going from "detached from purpose and strategy" to embedded sustainability

Avoiding “greenwashing” syndrome

  • Real benchmark and transparency

  • Identify the company purpose

  • Implementing with authenticity
