Telesto’s service lines span multiple cross-cutting domains through which we support our clients to drive impact
and deliver climate-positive growth
ESG Journey Acceleration (Strategy, Reporting, Transformation Mgmt.)
Drawing on our ESG Maturity Model, we support organizations at all stages of their ESG / sustainability journeys – from those that are just getting started to those who are driving innovation at the forefront. Depending on where our clients are, we tailor our support, offering materiality assessments and executive trainings to assessing ESG readiness across the organization’s value chain and quantifying socioeconomic impact.
Technology-Enabled ESG as a
For many organizations, dynamic tracking requires significant capital investment in tools and capabilities. Our ESG tracking tool enables organizations to track critical metrics in real time on demand.
Disclosures, and Forecasting
By integrating historical emissions data with corporate strategies and broader market trends, we generate forward-looking and dynamic models of organizations’ emissions.
Net-Zero Target Setting and Strategy Development
We support organizations in developing emissions reductions targets and roadmaps by analyzing current emissions profiles, benchmarking peer organizations and industry best practice (including SBTi and CDP), ensuring alignment with key partners, and designing decarbonization initiatives.
Delivering against emission reduction targets requires an cross-organization approach. We support our clients on developing and delivering the internal transformations needed to achieve net zero, including change management, internal trainings, SOP integration, and KPI setting.
Measuring & Quantifying External / Scope 4-like Impact
For organizations whose products and services generate positive external impact (e.g., solar panel manufacturers, financial services firms) we develop bespoke modeling tools that quantify impact to-date (including Scope 4 emissions) and help make the financial and sustainability cases for scaling.
Physical Climate Risk Assessment
Organizations face rising threats from wildfires, droughts, extreme rainfall, and other effects of climate change. We leverage our geospatial tools to identify current and future property-level risks across multiple warming scenarios, including both acute and chronic risks as required for TCFD reporting, and estimate related economic impact.
Transition Risk and Low-carbon Business Models
Removing carbon from global economy will have significant effects on all sectors due to the extensive policy, legal, technology, and market changes. We help organizations understand what these shifts mean for their long-term strategies and identify relevant financial and reputational risks as required for TCFD reporting.
Climate Risk Management and Mitigation
We support organizations in embedding their climate risk procedures into their broader strategy, operations, and risk functions – for example, by integrating physical climate risks into capex deployment or by stress-testing growth roadmaps against a regulatory and buyer landscape impacted by climate. We further support organizations in disclosing these risk management and mitigation procedures in TCFD, CDP, and other disclosure programs.
Carbon Abatement, Decarbonization Roadmapping, & Financial Modeling
We help organizations identify financially sustainable interventions that optimize ROI and sustainability, including renewable energy procurement, energy efficiency, carbon credit procurement, and embedding carbon assessments into asset/portfolio management and capital deployment processes.
Climate Capital Promotion
We leverage our unique combination of climate and corporate strategy expertise to connect the dots between sources of capital and positive ROI opportunities for climate impact, including emissions abatement, carbon sequestration, and climate resilience interventions.
Climate Entrepreneurship & Enterprise Support
We view building up the “connective tissue” between climate investors and investees as integral to increasing climate finance globally. We support both sides of the investment equation by equipping climate entrepreneurs to engage with potential investors (e.g., preparing pitch decks, developing a business narrative) and helping investors find the right targets.
