The ESG Challenge

From material risk to competitive advantage and improved financial outcomes

The central role of embedded governance, leadership, capability
and culture on value creation and portfolio risk


Investors need information about the future ESG performance of their long-term investments

Without it, portfolio risk increases and can lead to less attractive investment outcomes.


Embed ESG principles into the operations and the culture of the organisation

Embedding and integration are needed to transform ESG into a competitive advantage

Helping organisations address these two challenges is our business

GLCC - Our approach to ESG risk and value creation

We look inside the organisation, ‘below the waterline’, to understand and report current and future ESG strengths and risk exposures.
Creating value while managing risk requires transforming ESG from an imposition that could damage performance into a positive that strengthens and accelerates business. It is a move from a perceived cost into an opportunity to build strategic resilience and future proof the business.
We can assist you with measuring GLCC and offering guidance for its improvement up-down and across the organisation.
It implies integrating four key organisational components (see GLCC on right) as a mechanism towards building a synergy for sustainability change and transformation. 
These four elements (GLCC) are the drivers of performance. Future proofing the business means enhancing and leveraging them for higher performance and at the same time for ESG success. 

ESG leadership drives ESG values, culture, commitment, skills,  attitudes, behaviours, engagement, alignment, performance and ability to adapt and change. GLCC is the predictor of ESG and sustainability success, and of higher performance.
