ESG is no Longer Just About Doing Good, it's About Doing Well

ESG

IOD is uniquely qualified to offer ESG Advisory Services with our extensive experience in corporate governance, sustainability, and stakeholder engagement. Our comprehensive framework for ESG integration, proven track record of stakeholder engagement, and vast network of ESG experts, which include corporate leaders, academicians, and sustainability professionals, help us to deliver customised ESG solutions that are aligned with an organisation’s goals.

ESG Strategy Development

We help organisations develop their overall ESG strategy by helping organisations adopt ESG metrics into the business model & growth strategy of the organisation.

For this we adopt a three step approach-:

(A.) Assessment: Firstly, we will identify the ESG material issues, opportunities and risks of the organisation’s ability to execute its business strategy.

(B.) Benchmarking: After reviewing organisation’s strategy, the current performance of shall be compared to industry peers and international benchmarking standards.

(C.) Strategy Foresight: Based on the assessment & benchmarking standards, a time-bound roadmap of embedding ESG into each function of the business shall be developed.

ESG Reporting and Disclosure

We offer consultations on ESG reporting and disclosures, as identified in various reporting frameworks, such as Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, Business Responsibility and Sustainability Reporting (BRSR - Core), Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), and Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and Integrated Reporting (IR) Framework.

Sustainability Assessments

How Sustainable is your Sustainable Policy? To help your ESG as well as Sustainability Strategies be most effective, we perform Sustainability Assessments. We understand, deep-delve, and assess the current ESG strategy and ESG Oversight mechanisms of organisations, using unique tools and techniques including conducting International Benchmarking Studies. We deliver insights to help you understand and realize the full potential of your Sustainable Policy.

Framework Development for ESG Committees

There is considerable ambiguity in Corporate Boards today about how ESG Committees should be adding value to their Boardrooms and Organisational Strategy. Which is why, we offer consulting services with respect to composition, organisation, and operation of ESG/CSR committees across Industries. We help create clarity with respect to the Committee’s role, functions, responsibilities, and key terms of reference.

Climate Governance

Climate Governance

The India Chapter of the Climate Governance Initiative, in collaboration with the World Economic Forum, has been instituted at IOD.

The ‘Climate Governance Initiative’ of the ‘World Economic Forum’ has supported the development of national fora of company/non-executive directors across the globe through its ‘Chapters’, with 15 established ‘Chapters’ currently, and many more at varying stages of development which through webinars, workshops, round-tables and toolkits enable good climate governance.

IOD recognises the critical impediments of the on-going climate crisis to global financial stability, and hence is accelerating efforts in this direction. We are committed to engaging with the Boardroom & Director community to elevate the governance of climate change risks and opportunities, based on the CGI Principles.
