What We Do

Reimagining the possible

Telesto brings a diverse set of capabilities to all client engagements and partnerships. We recognize that the intensity and complexity of the problems that leaders face require our most courageous and creative thinking, alongside a deep quantitative and pragmatic approach. We also recognize the need to draw on globally accepted methodologies and standards — of which our team brings a deep working knowledge — to ensure that our partners can achieve their ESG and sustainability goals while also driving shareholder and stakeholder value.

Emissions benchmarking and forecasting

Emissions targets set under the 2015 Paris Agreement – and new pledges under the Glasgow Climate Pact – have far-reaching and material implications for the long-term corporate strategies of every company, especially those in energy, agriculture, and extractive industries. With the potential of carbon costs emerging in a range of countries, scrutiny of corporate emissions footprints and value at risk will continue to increase.

Socioeconomic impact analysis

We bring expertise in quantitatively and qualitatively evaluating the utility of projects and interventions so that all social, cultural, environmental, economic and financial impacts can be understood. In alignment with global standards, we recognize the importance of relationships between people, culture, economic activities and the biophysical environment.

Corporate strategy in a resource-constrained world

Our team helps guides our partners to embed sustainability and ESG into their business practices, processes, product development, operations and strategy. From political, business, and civic leaders, we see corporations being challenged to think well beyond their purpose of delivering profits to shareholders exclusively. Thus, a new model is needed that integrates profitability and purpose, value generation and risk mitigation. We help our clients build strategies that drive value for shareholders and stakeholders alike.

ESG and sustainability reporting

We help simplify the complexities of the rapidly evolving ESG reporting framework landscape for our partners. We do so by helping guide framework selection, evaluation, data gathering, and synthesis as well as reporting.

Circular business models

Circular business models modify the pattern of product and material flows through the economy. By doing so, they can reduce the adverse environmental side-effects resulting from the extraction, use, and eventual disposal of natural resources and materials. This results not only from facility level improvements in material productivity, but also from more fundamental changes in production and consumption patterns.

Climate risk and resilience

Climate resilience is the ability to anticipate, prepare for, and respond to hazardous events, trends, or disturbances related to climate. Improving climate resilience involves assessing how climate change will create new, or alter current, climate-related risks, and taking steps to better cope with these risks.

Businesses prepare for risks every day and must factor climate risks into existing risk management frameworks to become more climate resilient.

Biodiversity credits

Biodiversity credits (offsets) are attracting increasing interest as governments and the private sector seek to address biodiversity loss that occurs through development projects and activities. First used in the US in the 1970s to mitigate damage to wetlands, biodiversity offset programs have more recently been introduced more broadly. Now, more than 100 countries have enacted laws or policies that require or enable the use of biodiversity credits or are currently considering their use.

Biodiversity offsets are measurable conservation outcomes that result from actions designed to compensate for significant, residual biodiversity loss from developed projects.
