Climate Strategy & Planning


Developing a strategy to manage climate risk is a critical step for any forward looking organization. The opportunities and risks posed by climate change – including regulatory risk at the state and federal level, shareholder resolutions, threat of litigation aimed at large emitters, public awareness and perception, changes in energy costs, and supply chain risk – have risen to a level that warrants an effective well thought out strategy for response. Our team has experience with organizational strategy development, benchmarking analyses, and target formulation and goal setting.

Sustainability Strategy and Reporting


Climate change and greenhouse gas emissions are not the only issues prompting strategic discussions and voluntary public disclosures. Companies around the world are also addressing environmental, social and governance concerns including fresh water scarcity, deteriorating water quality, toxic chemicals and industrial pollution impacting human health, gender inequality, diversity and inclusiveness challenges, labor rights abuses including child labor, and other social ills such as lack of respect for basic human rights and increasing income inequality. Concerns over the potential for climate change and extreme weather events to disrupt supply chains are also focusing attention on sustainability, and many companies are actively working with their suppliers to improve sustainability metrics.

The growing awareness of these problems by consumers around the world has led to the institutionalization of sustainability reporting, as more and more companies are disclosing and reporting on their own efforts to be better corporate citizens. The quality of sustainability reporting is also improving as the standards and surveys become more effective and the data more actionable. Pressure from equity investors and stakeholders is also on the rise, and raises the bar for greater levels of disclosure and higher expectations for credibility.

Cventure can help your company improve its reporting under the GRI Standard and has experience in the verification of sustainability reports and statements. For more information, contact us at info@cventurellc.com.
