Impact analysis and management across four capitals – natural, human, social and financial -
is key to mitigating business risks.
External risks arising out of environmental, social and human impacts are becoming existential in nature and can threaten the survival of an organisation. For example, a company’s factory location that was relatively risk free when it was set up 20 years ago could be at extreme risk in the near future due to stressed water resources or severe shifts in weather patterns. A ban on single use plastics could threaten the survival of a company. Community protests could lead to the shutting down of a mining operation. GIST's capitals based framework helps organisations to identify and take proactive steps to manage these rapidly increasing sustainability risks.
Our impact analysis toolkits provide critical information, including scenario assessments and benchmarks, to enable decision makers to identify possible improvements and, ultimately, increase business value.
& Manage Risk
In this rapidly changing and complex world, standard business, financial and operational risk assessments no longer suffice.
Impact analysis provides critical inputs for business strategy development. It provides decision makers with comparable metrics, in order to determine key trade-offs,
investments and technology.
& Impact Disclosure
Today’s stakeholders, including regulators, investors and consumers, are demanding greater depth of reporting and higher degree of transparency from businesses. Our impact analysis and Integrated Profit & Loss reports are designed to deliver impact disclosures that enable businesses to generate multi stakeholder relevant disclosures.
Impact analysis and valuation based stakeholder communication removes perceived biases and misunderstanding of
an organisation’s actions.
Benchmarking provides reliable data to help inform business decision making. Analytics based on measuring and valuing multi-capital impacts is further enhanced by comparing one’s performance versus that of peers / industry.
