Industry & mining

The challenges you face

The industrial sector faces significant environmental, social and governance challenges in order to make their activities, products and services sustainable. The sector is of course at the heart of the transition to a circular economy, which will avoid natural resources depletion. Given their current environmental footprint, industrial players will also drive the fight against climate change. Because industrial sites represent particularly complex environments, occupational health and safety issues are salient as well. Production and extraction activities located in developing countries require a thorough due diligence when it comes to respect for human rights (land acquisition, supply chain, corruption, etc.).

The answer we provide

  • Due diligence, risk and impact assessment
  • Definition of strategies and implementation
  • Non-financial reporting (GRI, SASB, IR, CDP, TCFD, etc.)
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Climate change, circularity and other environmental issues
