SIP works with private company/family business C-suite leaders and their Board directors to maximize ESG opportunities for strategic competitive advantage, market leadership, and enhanced exit options.
Global markets are transitioning from the old "CSR" (Corporate and Social Responsibility) into a 'reborn', broader ESG (Environmental-Social-Governance) framework premised upon material impact, fiduciary accountability and operational transformation. An evolved ESG paradigm has reshaped the due diligence process and informed the analytical mindset of investors, auditors, CFOs, risk managers and other key players who have not traditionally considered ESG issues as truly material.
ESG indicators are now a filter through which assessments are made about any number of factors to do with a company. Indeed, ESG outcomes are increasingly core to valuation calculations while the right ESG initiatives can be developed into premium value-adds to enhance overall competitiveness and exit options when based on hard assets.
As new business practice standards and stakeholder expectations transform the competitive market landscape - including broadening the notion of what constitutes risk and liability - more privately held companies and family businesses will need to implement a proportionate ESG strategy to reduce that risk, build their long-term resilience, and adequately equip operations and other functionality.
Going forward, a successful private company ESG initiative will require fine tuning:
- Leadership and Management (Succession)
- Human Capital
- Supply Chain
- Customer Experience
- Innovation and Value Creation (Exit Competitiveness)
- Digital Transformation
