GoodCorporation works with clients to help them analyse and understand their material ESG issues. Our services enable organisations to identify what needs to be done to demonstrate a responsible approach to the management of environment, social and governance issues and how to comply with all reporting requirements.
Our ESG services focus on three key areas:
A materiality assessment is the critical first step in the development of any ESG strategy, enabling an organisation to identify the key ESG issues that will have an impact on both business performance AND key stakeholders.
A suite of services to enable an organisation to understand applicable legal and other reporting requirements, developing the framework, metrics, policies, procedures and necessary data to improve ESG performance and meet reporting obligations.
A meaningful ESG strategy needs to be embedded into the systems and processes of an organisation. GoodCorporation deploys over 20 years' experience in building and embedding responsible management systems to help organisations operationalise their ESG strategy.
ESG risks will vary from organisation to organisation so it is critical to identify the specific ESG issues salient to your business that have an impact on both performance and stakeholders.
GoodCorporation's Materiality Assessment will help identify all critical ESG risks and facilitate the development of a strategy to mitigate and manage the areas identified.
Our Materiality Assessment enables an organisation to:

The GoodCorporation Environment Framework provides set of responsible practices and procedures to help improve the robustness of any organisation’s environmental performance management. There are 43 framework points across 9 topics, including the governance of environmental topics, identifying and evaluating environmental risks and impacts of business activities, developing an effective environmental strategy and ensuring compliance to applicable environmental regulations.
It can be used to design or evaluate how environmental topics are managed as a whole or how specific issues are treated - such as greenhouse gas emissions, biodiversity impact, water use and land use for example. Use of the framework can also help organisations develop their sustainability strategies and embed environmental best practices into their business strategy.
Applicable to all relevant environmental issues, the framework can be used to help organisations align with global environmental standards and legislation by supporting the development of effective environmental management practices.
For organisations looking to develop an environmental roadmap, the framework can be used as a tool to perform a gap analysis against their current environmental management practices, enabling strengths and areas for improvement to be identified. As a high-level environment governance referential, it offers non-technical guidance to support organisations in managing their environmental responsibilities with regards to setting targets, improving environmental performance and meeting reporting requirements.
With the seemingly exponential rise in capital allocation to ESG funds, ESG is clearly here to stay. Our podcast explores the role of investors in driving the agenda and the steps businesses need to take to demonstrate ESG credentials.
We also examine the virtuous circle that an effective ESG strategy can help deliver, and explore how effectively managing ESG risks is integral to long-term sustainability.
GoodCorporation provides a range of services to help businesses develop create an effective framework for ESG.
With a swathe of regulation coming into force, requiring businesses to demonstrate how environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are managed, companies are under increasing pressure to report on a wide range of areas, but without an agreed framework for doing so.
So how are businesses reporting on ESG and why does this matter?
Our blog on ESG reporting explores the latest emerging trends for tackling these issues. It gives details of our ESG benchmark of best practice which we use to help companies assess how ESG targets are set, measured and reported on.
It explores the key areas that need to be measured and managed and how to go about this.
