Abacus Sustainability Consulting Practice focuses exclusively on providing consulting services in the sustainability space and covers the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) aspects of economic development. The services are targeted at facilitating clients in achieving their sustainability ambitions in line with the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). ESG commitments are increasingly becoming mainstream standards for socially conscious companies, and also used by many investors, customers and business partners to measure the ethical impact and sustainability potential of investments and alliances. ESG Practice aligns with ABACUS’ own strategic goals, reinforces our profile as a socially responsible and ethical corporate member, and also addresses a pressing market need to comply with sustainability protocols that are increasingly becoming critical for businesses, especially those engaged in exporting products and services across international borders.
Services We Provide
Our organization prioritizes the process of Materiality Assessment and Stakeholder Mapping to strengthen our sustainability management. We recognize the vital role played by both internal and external stakeholders, and our approach involves mapping them meticulously. We engage with stakeholders actively, using methods like interviews, focus groups, and surveys to gain insights and foster strong relationships.
Our assessment process incorporates the concept of double materiality. This ensures we address not only the strategic, economic, and ESG considerations of our clients but also how these factors impact them. The outcome is a deliverable that includes a list of material topics relevant to our organization, which we then map onto a materiality assessment grid. This allows us to make informed decisions and shape sustainability strategies for a positive impact on our client's organization.
Carbon Footprint Assessment
Our Carbon Footprint Assessment services are instrumental in helping organizations take control of their environmental impact and embrace sustainability. We conduct a comprehensive analysis by calculating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across Scope 1, 2, and 3, as required, to pinpoint emission sources and determine the overall carbon footprint. This not only helps businesses understand their environmental impact but also lays the foundation for sustainable improvements. We go a step further by examining the potential benefits of transitioning to alternative energy and transportation solutions over time. Our deliverable takes the form of a detailed report, providing insights into the total CO2e emissions. It also maps out the reductions that can be achieved through the adoption of green resources, demonstrating the positive impact of sustainable practices. Our Carbon Footprint Assessment empowers organizations to make informed decisions, reduce their environmental footprint, and align their strategies with a more sustainable and eco-friendly future.
Our Impact Assessment services are a crucial tool for organizations looking to not only adopt sustainable practices but also measure and optimize their effectiveness. We aid in the development of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) tailored to your specific sustainability initiatives. These KPIs are vital for assessing and quantifying the impact of your sustainability efforts, allowing you to track your progress and make data-driven decisions.
Our deliverable, in the form of a comprehensive report, goes beyond numbers. It delves into the economic, environmental, and social impacts that result from embracing sustainable practices and initiatives. By evaluating these multi-dimensional impacts, our assessment provides a holistic understanding of the changes brought about by your sustainability journey.
With our Impact Assessment services, your organization gains valuable insights into the true effects of your sustainability initiatives, empowering you to make informed choices, demonstrate your commitment to sustainability, and drive positive change across economic, environmental, and social dimensions.
