Energy Transition

Energy industry experts supporting your energy transition.

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) matters are critical to understanding the full risk profile of a company and how prepared it is to drive long-term growth, performance, and shareholder value while managing or mitigating risk. ESG issues are evolving across all industries and are a critical business imperative that requires a strategic, multi-stakeholder approach so investors, boards and stakeholders can put their investments and companies on a path towards a sustainable “energy transition”.

What is ESG & How Does it Impact The Energy Transition?

ESG is the future of energy investing. Instead of being designated as a separate discipline, ESG is becoming an integral part of how investors analyze how companies create long-term value and growth on their way to an energy transition. So, how can companies transition to such an ambitious goal? By partnering with an experienced business advisor who understands their business operations and possesses the operational and technological acumen of how to plan, implement, and execute a sound regulatory framework.

There are three key parts to ESG investing—the environmental, social, and governance aspects.


What kind of impact does a company have on the environment? This can include a company’s carbon footprint, chemical emissions involved in its manufacturing processes and sustainability efforts that make up its supply chain.


How does the company improve its social impact, both within the company and in the broader community? Social factors include diversity in both the executive suite and staff overall, philanthropic activity as well as hiring, development, and retention practices. It even looks at how a company advocates for social good in the wider world, beyond its limited sphere of business.


How does the company’s board, leadership, and management drive positive change? Governance includes everything from issues surrounding executive pay, diversity in leadership, business strategies for companies' long-term financial and operational benefit, community impact and how well that leadership responds and interacts with shareholders.
