Sustainability services

Our client-facing experts help organisations be better, do better, be more efficient, and contribute to a more sustainable future through several products, processes, and tools to help clients in their own sustainability journeys. Smart companies are discovering that it is no longer a choice between going green and growing long-term profits – sustainability is the path to prosperity. For both humanitarian and business reasons, it is imperative that all organisations take action now and embrace the benefits of a green economy.

We work with clients no matter where they are on their sustainability journey – we are here to guide you through a complex landscape to help you achieve success.

MATERIALITY ANALYSIS, is the foundational activity for the start of reporting.  It consists of identifying the primary impacts of economic, environmental and social elements, summarised in a Materiality Matrix. This methodological analysis helps to determine the broader dimensions of the company, defining its strategic role with respect to the sector and the challenges within a national and international context.

STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT, an activity carried out with the purpose of updating the Materiality Analysis. BDO would propose a strategic engagement programme with key stakeholders to ensure communication and alignment of programme objectives.

‘INTEGRATED THINKING’ aims to look at a business holistically to find value-creation opportunities using a combination of financial and non-financial methods. BDO accompanies the organisation in a journey of value creation including a short, medium, and long-term horizon. Using internationally recognised frameworks, BDO promotes ESG reporting processes that allow the periodic publication of a non-financial report (besides the annual financial report), or an integrated financial report - namely a single annual document containing both financial and non-financial information in accordance with industry standards.

ROLE OF THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS - The SDGs encourage business to make sustainable development a central part of their business strategy to ensure organisations meet the needs of the present without compromising the needs of generations to come.
