Strategy & Reporting
Shinka Sustainability partners with clients to define the sustainability vision & mission and execute initiatives to drive value for your organization
Sustainability Strategy and Goal Setting
Our process for setting our clients' sustainability strategy and determining the appropriate goals involves workshops and interviews with the leadership team, select internal stakeholders, and external stakeholders. In addition, we perform benchmarking analysis of competitors' sustainability metrics and scores. Then we guide our clients through the development of a Vision and Mission Statement that serves as the directional compass for the organization.
A comprehensive strategy includes:
Development of Mission and Vision Statements
Internal Benchmarking of Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) data
Setting Internal Goals/Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
Development of Scorecards for Tracking Goals
Long Term Planning and Roadmaps for Achieving Goals and Improving Investor Rankings.
A Materiality Assessment can be included in a Strategy or can be performed as a stand alone project. Materiality Assessments determine the high priority/high impact areas that an organization needs to focus their sustainability initiatives on in order to define the scope of their program and to develop a GRI sustainability report.
Sustainability Reporting and Rankings
We work with our clients to compile all of their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) data to develop an external sustainability report. Many clients also choose to report to supplier surveys and recognized sustainability reporting frameworks including:
Global Reporting Index (GRI)
Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB)
Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)
