MHA Dynamic ESG: Purpose with Profit
We know you want to do the best for the planet, for your staff and you want to meet high governance standards. We also know that to be in business, and to stay in business, you need to make a profit.
That’s why we designed Dynamic ESG. Uniquely available through MHA, Dynamic ESG takes you on your sustainability journey – from your ESG framework to your carbon reporting, from your climate risk assessment to your Net Zero journey – using a proprietary process that never forgets your sustainability journey must do more than meet your ESG goals. It needs to provide a solid return on your investment.
We call it Purpose with Profit.
MHA Dynamic ESG comprises three stages: Create, Evaluate and Implement.
We develop and implement an initial Sustainability & ESG framework strategy in line Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and Sustainable Development Goals (“SDG’s”) and TCFD (including highlighting material areas the company needs to consider in the next 12 to 18 months. We clearly set aroadmap of integration of material ESG components (including definition of ESG) and the preparation of a strategy board pack to present to support return on investment). The framework and strategy paves the way for your business and integration of Sustainability & ESG.
We review the framework against your existing policies and procedures to calibrate against GRI & EU taxonomy, SDG’s and TCFD. This helps identify any areas of improvements such as waste management, procurement and energy efficiency measures. We further evaluate our own findings against best practise metrics to ensure that our impact is both measurable, reportable and understandable. During the evaluation process we have meetings with various stakeholders of the organisation to ensure you manage their reporting expectations and we also investigate the training requirements for the board of directors, audit committee and key senior and operational employees.
By identifying, measuring, disclosing, and managing your material Sustainability and ESG risks, your organisation will be far better placed to mitigate and adapt efficiently and effectively to climate change and future reporting requirements, as well as meeting the growing demand and pressure from clients, customers, shareholders and other stakeholders. Our services include comprehensive financial and non-financial support opportunities.

TCFD and Extreme Weather – why it matters to business
Risks related to climate change are now ranked as top global risks. Climate risks are business risks that can have a significant effect on an organisation’s revenue, expenses, operations, strategy and return on investment.
Climate-related risks comprise both the physical risks resulting from the direct impacts of climate change, together with the transition risks relating to the efforts needed to transition to a lower carbon economy. Both are business-critical.
At MHA we will assess the hazards, exposure and vulnerabilities of your organisation in order to create a risk profile in accordance with the TCFD (Task Force for Climate-related Financial Disclosures) recommendations. This comprises four internationally recognised pillars: Governance, Strategy, Risk Management and Metrics & Targets.
By identifying, measuring, disclosing and managing your business risks, your organisation will be far better placed to mitigate and adapt efficiently and effectively to climate change, as well as meeting the growing demand from clients, customers, shareholders and other stakeholders to disclose your climate-related risks and mitigating actions.
