Corporate Directors

Supporting Corporate Directors to mitigate ESG and climate risks, stay ahead of changing regulatory regimes, and enhance disclosures and reporting in the face of increasingly complex environments

We support Corporate Directors – from boards of directors to members of key committees and the C suite – to hedge against ESG and climate risks, adapt to and stay ahead of regulatory changes, and enhance climate and sustainability disclosures & reporting. We do this by making available to our clients proprietary tools and solutions as well as our deep expertise from working with executive clients from a wide array of sectors and geographies.

Who we support

Boards of Directors

We help board members develop foundational knowledge around sustainability, climate, and ESG in alignment with anticipated training requirements at the board level. We work with boards to understand and comply with requirements stemming from fast-paced and complex shifts across regulations and jurisdictions.

Audit & Risk Committees

We work with Audit & Risk Committees to integrate climate and ESG risk into overall Enterprise Risk Management,  deliver on key mitigation strategies to reduce risk, and enhance disclosure and reporting in the face of increasing regulatory, investor, and consumer pressure.

ESG & Sustainability Committees

We support dedicated board-level ESG & Sustainability Committees to set and execute their strategies, drive value creation, and integrate physical climate, transition, and ESG risk into their broader Enterprise Risk Management frameworks.

Executive Committee (C Suite)

We help C-level executives to proactively and confidently engage their boards on ESG and sustainability by identifying and prioritizing risks, articulating mitigation strategies, and conducting regular reporting to their boards on progress.

Governance Committees

We work with Governance Committees to develop and put in place policies which govern processes for ESG and climate disclosures and compliance and duties of board members around ESG and climate. 

Finance Committees

We support Finance Committees Financial to understand and quantify the financial impact of climate and ESG risk to the business and integrate ESG into financial reporting (e.g., SASB).
