Social And Governance Topics


Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) are vital parts of businesses across all industries, as there exists a growing demand for businesses to measure and manage corporate sustainability and build resiliency worldwide. The market has shown that your approach to ESG—from strategy and planning, to action and collaboration, to monitoring and reporting—will play a key role in the success and longevity of your company. Next week, ADEC ESG Solutions and Climate Action KC will host a panel of industry leaders who will share perspectives on how their different industries are approaching ESG.

Measuring CDP Performance by Sector

Posted by Alicia Godlove on Aug 4, 2020 9:30:00 AM


Is your company ready to submit its CDP disclosure this month? With the August 26 deadline fast approaching, you still have a few weeks to ensure you have the support you need to maximize your performance. As CDP’s Global Scoring and Outsourcing Partner from 2011-2019, ADEC ESG Solutions has unique experience in supporting organizations reporting to CDP.

2020 seemingly presents new challenges to organizations and communities on a daily basis. How do you prioritize your staff’s health and safety, while keeping operations running? How do you increase revenue in an industry indefinitely on hold? How do you monitor continually changing local and national regulations, and exhibit business adaptability to operate within them? How do you provide a supportive and inclusive culture where employees feel safe and valued? How do you ensure your business can survive office shutdowns and supply chain disruption? How do you create business resiliency for the long-term?

ADEC Innovations ESG Solutions recently hosted a highly relevant webinar on How to Respond to CDP During Times of Global Crisis. The current pandemic has propelled resiliency and sustainability to the forefront for companies and other organizations as they adapt, adjust, and evaluate how they do business amidst global disruption. In the webinar, our experts outlined specific challenges they anticipate for CDP reporting this year and how to not only address these challenges, but also how to implement best practices and take advantage of opportunities in this changing landscape.

Our recent webinar, Resilient Cities: Adaptation and Municipal Financing in the Era of COVID-19, brought together Climate Action KC (CAKC), ADEC Innovations, and Moody’s. We presented an increasingly relevant overview of ESG in the context of private investing for local governments, what ESG factors and risks are used by bond raters, and climate resiliency in the era of COVID-19.

World Environment Day: Time for Nature

Posted by Hunter Donovan on Jun 5, 2020 1:17:00 PM


On June 5th every year, World Environment Day is celebrated to encourage worldwide awareness and action to protect the environment. This year's theme is Time for Nature, which calls for an urgent action to protect biodiversity.

While transparency and reporting for businesses have become increasingly important in recent years, the changing landscape in light of the current pandemic has made these factors even more crucial. The outbreak of COVID-19 has driven companies and other organizations to rethink resiliency, sustainability, and how they do business amidst global disruption.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors have become key considerations in the private sector when investors and companies are evaluating, disclosing, and mitigating risk. In the public sector, local governments face similar risks and many of the same ESG criteria are used by bond rating agencies to evaluate municipal credit ratings.

What is a sustainable supply chain?

Over the past decade and into the new one, there has been a marked shift towards corporate sustainability, transparency, and accountability. More and more large corporations are making commitments to cut their greenhouse gas emissions. With supply chain emissions reaching up to 5.5 times as high as emissions from direct operations, looking at creating a more sustainable supply chain is the logical next step for any company that is committed to its sustainability goals.
