COMPLEXITY

Getting ESG right is complicated, and the landscape continuously evolves. Our scorecards, reports and advisory services help you get ESG right in a light touch manner and at a much lower cost than hiring your own Sustainability Officer.

Time

Our online survey only takes 90 minutes to complete; our automated assessment gives you a detailed insight into your ESG capabilities with immediate visibility into the areas you need to prioritise to grow sustainably.

Money

Sustainable businesses are more efficient by reducing operating costs and lowering staff turnover. In addition, they are more attractive to investors and can lower their funding costs. They can even save money on key business services like insurance.

Preparing you for EU and UK Climate Regulation: Triple Whammy for SMEs and private companies

Supply Chain – The impact of climate-related disclosure rules for large companies will ripple through their supply and value chains, putting even the smallest businesses under pressure to provide evidence of their sustainability and climate impact.

Future Rules – The rules will expand to include many of the remaining 21 million EU companies classified as SMEs. They generate 2/3rds of all jobs in the EU.

Asset Managers and Banks – Investment and lending decisions will be simplified with a sustainable strategy, making portfolio inclusion for public and private companies simpler, and lending conditions easier.

Good ESG practices accelerate Business Growth and Resilience

  • ESG practices are linked to an increase in the bottom line: A proper ESG program can lead to cost savings by reducing waste, optimising energy usage and resources in a currently hampered supply chain.
  • Employees are attracted to social responsibility.
  • Customers are paying attention: More than half of customers (66%) say they will spend more on sustainable brands, according to Nielsen’s Global Corporate Sustainability Report.
  • Sustainability is almost the only thing driving purchasing behaviours for Gen Z consumers, making having a social mission key for B2C businesses.
  • Sustainability increases employee and customer engagement for B2B businesses: being able to demonstrate their own sustainability through the tender and contract process, helps them to fulfil the sustainability commitments of their customers.
  • Sustainable businesses have access to dedicated funds.

Sustainability is Key to Fundraising Success

  • 70% of individual investors (up from 64% in 2019) believe organisations have a responsibility to demonstrate ESG performance to investors, with Gen Z and younger Millennial-aged investors (18–34-year-olds) the most demanding around ESG credentials.
  • 44% of individual investors surveyed expressed that they would be more likely to invest in a company that demonstrates its ESG performance.
  • This sentiment increased to 55% for Gen Z and Millennial-aged investors across all regions.

Endorsements

TDH ESG Essentials works at multiple levels, from the first steps to sustainability awareness, right through to deep partnerships with clients to help them structure comprehensive, cross-company solutions for board adoption.

Here’s how we worked with one of our clients, a global provider of data management and investment intelligence solutions to the world’s leading investors and asset managers:

Identify the knowledge gaps:
“We as a company knew that we were investing a lot of time in corporate ESG initiatives however were struggling to define our ESG strategy and prioritize these initiatives to ensure that we were investing in the right areas. Our initial conversations with TDH ESG Research were so appreciated, helping us to cut through the acronyms and talk practically about some of the challenges and opportunities that faced us.

Assess the business and its workforce:
TDH first conducted a materiality assessment of our company along with an employee survey so that we could validate how our employees felt about the work we were doing.

Score and benchmark:
The results of both of these pieces of work were consolidated into reports in plain English, translated into practical, actionable steps which really helped us to understand how we are doing against our peers and what we could do next to move the dial.

Inform and remediate at the board level:
The Head of ESG Research and his team took the time to really understand us as a business and didn’t just send us reports but talked us and our Executive team through them at length.

Partnership:
I would recommend TDH to any Company like us who want to make a difference, thanks TDH!”
