What we do

EBS Advisory has established itself as a leading advisor in the application of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) across various sectors including manufacturing, FMCG, agriculture, forestry, retail, hospitality, health care, industry, mining, oil and gas, banking, micro finance, ICT and energy in Africa and other emerging markets.  EBS Advisory is the dedicated strategic advisor to more than 70 Private Equity Funds, Banks, Asset Managers, Hedge Funds and/or Financial Institutions.

Companies transition through various stages of Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) maturity.  EBS Advisory aims to assist companies with this transition allowing them to progress from a pure risk management focus to the use of ESG as a differentiator in the markets in which they operate. 

To facilitate this transition EBS Advisory has developed key services focused on management of risk, defining strategy, facilitating the way a company communicates their journey and defines their impact.

Risk

It is important for any company to have identified, understood and implemented internal controls to manage ESG risks. The services offered by EBS Advisory to facilitate this process focus on ensuring a business is legally compliant, has the correct governance processes in place, is defending their value created, is protecting their reputation, and continuing to enhance brand value.

This focus can also be defined as a business’s license to operate, which requires focus on developing internal buy in within the business for managing ESG risks identified. A business should after implementation of these services be able to identify material ESG issues, ensuring they are managed and communicated adequately to key stakeholders.

Strategy

To be effective, ESG management should form part of a business overall corporate strategy. Due to the nature of ESG management, key aspects require integration across a business and an oversight on a management level. If done properly, ESG can be used as a differentiator for the business, enabling them to out perform their competitors, both from a market positioning perspective as well as through improved margins. EBS Advisory provides strategic input to organisations from early stage development of an ESG strategy to updating and developing bespoke strategies.

Communications

Communicating what you do as a business is critical to establishing a track record in ESG performance. This should focus on the use of both internal and external communication mechanisms and should leverage the use of multiple media channels.

EBS Advisory has specific experience in tailoring bespoke communication pieces.  This includes inputs to fund raising exercises, internal reporting for staff and senior management, as well as the reporting to external stakeholders on the company’s ESG and company performance.

Impact

ESG impact is often referred to as an intangible asset held by a business. Impact associated with ESG implementation is recognised internally through improvement in processes and labour efficiencies and strengthened brand recognition that has an indirect impact on a business’s financial performance.

A business does not operate within a vacuum. The community, region and country in which it operates informs the level to which financial, manufactured, intellectual, natural, social and human capital can be leveraged by a business to create value for themselves and within society. Maximising these value creation opportunities strengthens a company’s license to operate, differentiates it from its competitors and enhances its brand and ability to access new markets.

Climate Risk

The need for net-zero pledges to evolve into net-zero plans is clear and urgent under the emerging climate economy. Quantifying and offsetting physical, transitional, and reputational climate risk is a new and complex challenge for many financial institutions and companies.  Pressure is mounting from clientele, investors, industry regulators, and governments for an adequate and tangible response to the climate emergency. At EBS Advisory we hold a track-record of mitigating climate risk and maximising the opportunities in the shift towards net-zero economies.
