Sustainability Strategy

Winning sustainability strategies are characterized by clear choices on where to focus (direction) and a persistent, rapid execution (speed). At Finch & Beak we support companies by designing and implementing sustainability strategies that are directly connected to the company’s must-win-battles. We immediately make them actionable through the development of roadmaps, communications and well-prioritized actions.

Materiality Matrix in Focus

Analysts are better able to assess fundamental risk and reflect it in stock prices when corporate disclosures are specific and avoid vague, abstract language. However, according to SASB’s State of Disclosure Report, companies used vague and non-specific language more than 50% of the time across ESG topics. Sustainability leaders such as DSM, Unilever and Barry Callebaut demonstrate that a focused materiality approach that is strongly allied to the company’s Enterprise Risk Management and aligned with its business strategy leads to better results, both for society and for shareholders. With only an approximated 30% of companies actually combining their materiality assessment with their Enterprise Risk Mapping, “StratESGy”, i.e. the alignment of business strategy with ESG factors, is still in its infancy.

Paving the Impact Valuation Pathway

To really make changes based on sustainability information, companies need to know how to value that information. Today, top management of two sustainability consultancies – Eric Mieras of PRé and Jan van der Kaaij of Finch & Beak – share their united vision of the way forward.

EDP: Green Bonds Foster Sustainable Investing

Alternative forms of investments are becoming more predominant in corporate financial structures. Companies that leave a bigger fingerprint are encouraging internal collaboration by pairing unrelated divisions to one another. Energias de Portugal is living proof of this, blending its corporate vision with investors’ desire for portfolio diversification. Hedging both financial and environmental risk factors, green bonds enable alignment and play an active role in a strategic point of view.

DJSI Results 2019.png

The 2019 Global Dow Jones Sustainability Index Results

Last Friday, SAM and S&P Dow Jones Indices announced the results of the annual Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) review. Newcomers in this year’s DJSI Indices include Alphabet Inc, Bureau Veritas, and Hilton Worldwide Holdings, while Royal Dutch Shell, 3M and DuPont are amongst those who dropped out. As our summarizing infographic illustrates, this year the overall participation grew with an astonishing 18%. This is in large part due to the soaring use of ESG data by investors and the increasing evidence of the prime position that the DJSI holds within the ESG arena.
