Corporate Responsibility
  • Sustainability can be a complex and intangible issue to integrate into corporate strategy. Greengage assists clients in unlocking the value of sustainability over the short, medium and long term. This process not only mitigates regulatory and operational risk for businesses, but also presents potential new business opportunities. We work with organisations in defining the material environmental and social elements that are fundamental to their business and their key stakeholders, and use this information in facilitating the composition and implementation of a sustainability strategy, including policy, targets and associated measurement.

  • We develop carbon footprinting frameworks to understand an organisation’s sources of carbon emissions relating to all core activities. We help companies understand their baseline energy / water / waste consumption and the associated Scope 1, 2 & 3 GHG emissions so that management measures can be introduced in a formalised and comprehensive manner. This can be fed into the support we provide for compliance with legislative or corporate requirements regarding carbon disclosure, such as mandatory GHG reporting for UK quoted companies.

  • Greengage work with organisations to standardise their measurement and reporting of embodied carbon using industry best practice in order to reduce the life cycle impact of a project. We identify where embodied energy impacts arise within the design process and supply chains and make recommendations regarding specification of alternative materials, material optimisation and construction methods. These recommendations are used to inform the design of a project, as well as that of future projects.

  • One of the key principles of environmental and social governance is the promotion of transparency. Greengage support companies through initial consultation and materiality review to discern what the most appropriate reporting process would be. We will then assist in collating, analysing and disclosing the data for the completion of the report and compliance with relevant legislation or third party mechanisms.

    Disclosure of non-financial information goes beyond compliance; it is crucial in understanding a company’s market position within an industry and keeping up to date with current risks. Stakeholders and investors are increasingly looking towards these metrics as a means of understanding and evaluating the long term value and risks of the company. Greengage have extensive experience of completing these sustainability metrics, including; GRESB, GRI, CDP and UNPRI.
