Based on our vast experience in policymaking, legislative development, advocacy, and implementation of concrete projects and programmes worldwide, we offer a unique set of services for any company and investment firm who wants to be at the forefront of increased awareness, amongst regulators as well as consumers, of the effects generated by their sustainability strategies, operations, services, or products.
ESG, SDGs, international norms, reporting mechanisms (among others) are all part of a set of tools and ways of considering, conceptualizing and measuring sustainability efforts. It is important to never think of them as isolated silos. We consider the link between the E and the S and G with a cross-cutting approach based on the spirit of the SDGs, and always based in international and regional standards, thus ensuring that you will always be a step ahead in monitoring, measuring, and reporting as well as in your stakeholder engagement. This allows you to fully capture your effects and efforts on sustainability, and report on your ESG performance accordingly.
We will follow you over the coming years of increased focus on sustainability issues, offering long-term support in your sustainability journey and providing you with effective guidance on how to progressively integrate or leverage Environment, Social and Governance factors and criteria into your business investment processes, business strategies and marketing/communications approaches.
The norms-based discourse allows us to have a strong basis for change, risk management as well as communication around complex issues, providing the tools for a meaningful engagement on ESG issues to companies operating in complex industries and challenging geographical contexts. We believe that international norms are a concrete, harmonized guidance on how to establish and prioritize medium and long-term goals in your sustainability strategy, as well as on how to communicate in a transparent manner about the trade-offs at the basis of your strategy. Besides creating trust and accountability in your corporate actions, this approach will allow you to have an enormous positive effect on both the environment and the communities affected by your business activity.

“Not having a sustainability strategy is an increasing risk, from a reporting perspective as well as from a brand perspective. Companies and investors need to be able to not only comply with new regulations, but actively engage in a sustainability debate, so that they can steer their impact in the right direction while protecting their reputation and legal interests.”Kristina TouzenisBST Managing Partner
“A true commitment to sustainability leadership means tackling the ESG challenges arising in all corporate sectors. If we are serious about bringing the implementation of the SDGs to fruition we must welcome investors’ interest in opening their portfolios also to complex sectors, provided that there is a genuine sustainability commitment articulated in a clear strategy.”John GranholmBST Partner
“Perfection should never become the enemy of better. Regulation must aim at empowering the business community to transform itself by embedding sustainability into its business model. It should acknowledge the challenges of this transformation without setting forth unpractical limitations that could end up harming the very rightsholders it aims to protect.”Giulia BiselliBST Partner
“When we talk about social factors measuring sustainability can be extremely difficult, because the indicators are often too diverse and fragmented. A holistic approach to measuring impact, capable of recognizing the interconnection between the E and S effects and of creating short, medium, and long-term impact goals is needed to fully capture a company’s ESG performance.”Silvia ScoziaBST Partner
