Corporate Strategy with ESG Criteria
Corporate Strategy with ESG Criteria
ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) is a set of strategies for profound improvement in the three areas of environment, social impact and corporate governance, which many companies are beginning to undertake in the face of increasing pressure from public and regulatory opinion and from the investment and financing community.
These are transformational strategies that involve a real change in the way of doing things, generating value for the different stakeholders. The ESG strategy is the responsibility of the company's top management. Public scrutiny on the degree of companies' commitment to real change strategies will be increasing.
A strategic approach to ESG transformation, based on stakeholder needs and expectations, can bring benefits to companies in their risk management, access to capital, human resource management, innovative capacity and business sustainability in the medium and long term. At PKF Attest our multidisciplinary team works with all areas of the company to achieve common objectives and improve ESG positioning.

How can we help you?
We perform an ESG diagnostic or due diligence on the company to identify ESG risks and opportunities. Based on the results, we establish a plan and concrete objectives.
Once the diagnosis is completed, we create a customized itinerary that identifies the ESG objectives and projects that will help the company to improve its ESG positioning.
The implementation of the itinerary requires sufficient monitoring and follow-up to ensure that the projects are progressing as planned, achieving the expected objectives.
Based on the main ESG standards and benchmarks, we analyze the situation of each company, define the necessary projects and help execute them.
