ESG services and strategy

ESG Strategy Consulting

Goodbye theory, hello action

ESG are a set of environmental, social and governance topics related to corporates – criteria used by many investors. ESG represents risks and opportunities that will impact a company’s ability to create enterprise value including climate change, resource scarcity, pollution, product safety, data privacy and security, diversity and inclusion, executive pay and tax transparency.

Move from theory to action with a practical, purpose-led plan that will deliver sustained outcomes.

Creating value through ESG

How PwC can help

Economic uncertainty, political upheaval, and environmental and social concerns have left a deep mark on today’s business landscape, affecting consumers and companies alike. With Business Responsibility and Sustainability Reporting (BRSR) mandated by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), the regulatory heat is already on and the relevance of ESG norms in India is on an upswing. The challenges we encounter are all symptoms of a deeper problem: Our economies are not delivering sustainable, secure, affordable, inclusive outcomes for society. It is clear that businesses – including PwC – need to transform, and that is why we are focused on developing the capabilities needed to build stakeholder trust based on transformational outcomes.

PwC’s sustainability experts know your industry, geographies in which you operate and the challenges it faces and can help you find the right solutions on the path towards sustainability. We understand the ESG needs of our customers cannot be addressed by a one-stop shop. A comprehensive set of specialised ESG competencies are required to provide fit-for-purpose ESG services to our customers that can be fulfilled by PwC’s ESG platform, which is a collection of such competencies.

Our ESG services in India include:

We assist organisations in understanding the impact and urgency of action on current and emerging expectations of stakeholders, translated into material ESG topics. ESG regulations by regulators, changing customer preferences and intensifying societal pressures need to be sensed using a strategic framework that can help our clients to make ESG an integral part of their corporate DNA and embed its aspects within their business strategies.

Such purpose-driven businesses in sync with ESG expectations not only retain their licence to operate but unleash the potential of the emerging ESG market and that of corporates to harness growth, mitigate risks, improve performance, enhance reputation, ease access to finance and facilitate competitiveness in talent acquisition and retention. PwC’s ESG strategy services assist in effective execution on the ambitions and set targets, recasting the customer value proposition, reinventing the business model and reorganising the operating model by reflecting purpose-driven ESG goals in stakeholder engagement, business and people processes.

More than ever before, the volatility and fragility of global interdependent systems have been made apparent by climate change and increasing natural hazards. Businesses across the globe are facing serious threats from climate change. Physical risks associated with climate change include asset loss, service disruption and poor business operations, all of which lead to a multitude of cascading transitional, reputational and liability risks. Therefore, businesses must act in a seamless, coordinated and productive fashion to have a strategic edge over whatever climate change holds for the future.

We at PwC, can help you identify the possible implications of climate change and disasters, evaluate the priority actions needed to adapt to and reduce future climate and disaster risks, make decisions and investment choices based on hazard vulnerabilities, risks and exposures, and enhance your future resilience and agility.

Safeguarding your needs: Our climate resiliency value offerings

PwC’s climate resilience advisory helps you create a panoramic view of your unique risk landscape, so you can act boldly and purposefully. We work with diverse clients ranging from public, private and financial sectors to ensure our recommended solutions have a broad spectrum of applicability, in order to offer the best protection for people and the planet.

  • Disaster and climate risk resilience: Our community of solvers works with clients to recommend location-specific adaptation and mitigation actions for various economic sectors to ensure systems’ resilience at scale and safeguard businesses and governments from the ever-intensifying effects of climate change, such as rise in sea levels, floods, heatwaves, droughts and landslides. Our experts can help you conduct climate risk assessments to identify, measure and act on your hazard vulnerabilities, risks and exposures. We have the analytical skills to map a range of portfolio-level climate risks, and the resilience experience to turn risks into actionable insights to deal with various disaster and climate scenarios. Our cutting-edge climate risk modelling and analytics tools will assist you in generating detailed and granular information on climate risks using IPCC and globally reliable hazard data.
  • Nature-positive solutions: At PwC, we are constantly leveraging relationships and interests centred around environmental issues to enable businesses and governments to respond to the rising climate-induced losses and damages. We are helping clients with nature-positive urban transformations to help mitigate climate change impacts. Nature positive is the foundation for good governance, long-term stable societies and healthy economies, and is a new business model based on regeneration, resilience and recirculation (World Economic Forum). Through our nature-based offerings, we help businesses to become resilient in their operations while also contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  • We, at PwC, can help you identify and prioritise climate risks and opportunities, understand your current performance against peers, and assess the value implications and change initiatives needed to mitigate climate risks.
  • We can help you determine scope 1, scope 2 and scope 3 carbon footprints, and help you set up a digital tracking solution to enable ongoing measurement and tracking against various climate scenarios. With this value chain-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint, your organisation will be able to translate the implications of carbon into business-specific parameters.
  • Net zero transformation: We assist clients in their net zero transformation, which means transitioning to a state where a business or economic activity adds no incremental GHGs to the atmosphere. By understanding the strategic sustainability issues for your business, we assess the business case for change and evaluate sustainable investing practices. Those who lead the decarbonisation transition move from defence to offence sooner and lead the creation of new markets for their businesses.
  • Businesses need to anticipate impacts to the operating model by taking specific steps on climate change, emissions and investments for a low-carbon future. This may include capital or R&D investment decisions, deals, workforce and skills development, products and services design, and customer experience decisions.
  • Climate resilience, adaptation and mitigation planning: We work with our clients to identify and mitigate climate impacts and adapt to the climate variability through the firm’s climate change consulting. We help businesses to focus on climate resilience and just livelihood generation for communities to gain a social licence to operate.
  • Climate risk and vulnerability analysis: We support clients in conducting an in-depth analysis of the risks and opportunities posed by climate change under different GHG emissions trajectory and policy regime for policymakers and businesses to take informed decisions around climate adaptation and mitigation strategies.
  • We help conduct physical and transition climate risk assessment and scenario analysis with IPCC data that is aligned with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and further informs Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) and sustainability reporting requirements.
  • Our digital climate resilience analytics tool can provide granular-level risk analysis across your value chain and recommend adaptation measures to build resilient supply chains, physical integrity of the assets and operating plans for the workforce to mitigate ever-intensifying climate change impacts, like rise in sea levels, floods, heatwaves and droughts, to name a few.
  • We provide end-to-end support to organisations on identification, listing, validation, registration, monitoring, verification and certification of carbon credits under different market mechanisms such as Verra, Gold Standard, Global Carbon Council and other UN mechanisms such as Clean Development Mechanism and Sustainable Development Mechanism.
  • We support organisations in the transaction of issued carbon credits.
  • We provide policy-level advisory to national and state governments on developing carbon market mechanisms and registries covering both offset mechanism and emission trading schemes.
  • We support clients in designing internal carbon pricing (ICP) mechanisms, keeping in mind the external carbon taxation policies – both existing and upcoming, such as cross-border adjustment mechanisms.

Water-related risks and factors that influence businesses are complex, and consistently feature among the top 10 major concerns as well as material issues for businesses across the globe. With increased local and regional water stress and frequent climate events, water-related challenges are more pronounced, prompting corporates and businesses to consider it an imperative to understand their risk exposure and plan risk resilience for short- and medium-term business security and long-term business sustainability. Companies are investing in water-related stewardship action in direct operations, areas where they operate and across their external dependencies considering: i) the traction on SDG goals and 2030 Water Agenda picking up rapid pace, ii) investors and stakeholders urging companies to disclose water performance, and iii) customers and consumers rallying for sustainable corporate practices.

PwC, through its global network of professionals that are connected via its Water Centre of Excellence (Water CoE), has been supporting corporates and businesses in their endeavours across various stages of corporate water action journey. Our market-leading expertise brings together cross-functional domain capabilities with the best-in-class tools that are essential for navigating the dynamic nature of water-related challenges. This enables us to mobilise appropriate resources and co-create successful outcomes for our clients across all spheres of their water action journey, with the benefit of global capabilities and regional insights including:

Corporate water strategy, leadership and governance

Our diverse experience working with global organisations brings value in screening portfolio of assets and investments for risks and liabilities, and understand thematic areas of pain points. It also helps us in establishing standard practices aligned with global and sector standards and guidelines, defining meaningful commitments and goals, instituting true value of water with business context, setting context-relevant targets, developing roadmaps for water action and delivering trusted advisory on transparency and disclosure.

Business continuity through water security and water risk resilience

Our presence in various geographies and working experience at a grassroot level helps us to undertake scientifically designed qualitative and quantitative approaches in order to understand complex (e.g. social and reputational), dynamic (e.g. regulatory), internal (e.g. infrastructure) and external (e.g. water source) water-related business risks. Furthermore, it helps us in extending our knowledge of mitigation measures adopted by businesses across sectors for a multitude of water-related challenges that impact normal operations of businesses, reflecting ground realities with pragmatic business context.

Responsible water-use in direct operations

Our knowledge base of industry best practices, peer performance benchmarks, general trends in technology and innovation in water-efficient operations, combined with diverse sector-specific experience while evoking contextual linkage with local water status and business risks are an integral part of the value we extend to our clients. This applies to how we evaluate and manage performance of individual operational facility, inform grassroot strategies and plans, and drive action on water conservation, water use optimisation, water efficiency, wastewater management, impact minimisation and overall water performance with due consideration to water-neutrality and carbon emission implications of transition action.

Responsible water stewardship in supply chain and post-production value chain

Whether it is understanding water dependency in supply chain and corresponding risk exposure through hot spotting across material flow map and geography extent, ensuring water security of key and critical supply network, rolling out framework for standard water practice in supply chain, minimising impact on water in value chain, navigating data challenges through data architecture, or developing digital water repository, we have the in-house capability to help businesses implement pragmatic measures and make informed decisions.

Corporate water stewardship action outside operational sphere

We understand the various drivers for external-facing initiatives of corporates which may include leadership in social action, business water security, fulfilling commitment to SDGs, aligning with national and regional best practices, meeting sectoral and industry standards, compliance requirements, maintaining social license to operate, corporate social responsibility (CSR), upholding investor and/or stakeholder expectations, aligning with international standard for water stewardship, among other factors. Our cross-functional teams and platforms add value to corporate external water stewardship endeavours through objective-oriented, scientific outcome-driven, business-relevant strategic and targeted engagement prioritisation. We provide trusted end-to-end advisory support through planning, implementation and exit transition, covering all aspects of external engagement that require collective action such as community WASH interventions, agri-interventions, collective water conservation and groundwater replenishment, preservation and rejuvenation of water features, afforestation and soil conservation, source water protection and supply infrastructure enhancement and wastewater reclamation – among other grassroot programmes. 

Circular economy is a system-focused model of operations, which involves processes that are restorative or regenerative by design, enable resource-use in processes and activities to maintain their highest values for as long as possible, and aim for the elimination of waste through the superior design of materials, products and systems, including business models. The Government of India has been prioritising circularity in recent years through policy amendments, by focusing on higher resource-use efficacy and scientific waste management. The Draft National Resource Policy (NREP) 2019 is guided by the principles of reducing primary resource consumption to ‘sustainable’ levels, with high resource-use efficiency and creating higher values with circular approaches. The NITI Aayog has identified eleven focus areas and formed inter-ministerial committees to facilitate transition from a linear to a circular economy approach for these areas.

Adopting circularity has become imperative for businesses not only for compliance to the evolving regulatory requirements, but also for building resilience towards eventualities like indiscriminate resource extraction, volatile geopolitics and sensitivities in the supply chain, which may result in acute resource scarcity or price fluctuations. In addition to sustainability-conscious western markets targeted by Indian industries, domestic consumers are also gradually becoming more aware, and demanding businesses to be more responsible in consuming and managing resources. Corporates, through innovative circularity-oriented systems and processes, can access greater opportunities for profit through material cost savings and reduced environmental impacts, while further propelling their growth. Corporate strategies may vary – depending on the ambition of the organisation, size of their business, sectoral focus and the maturity of the ecosystem to support their objectives. Initiatives that relate to circular economy are broadly within the spectrum of a ‘9-R concept’ which include:

  • the 3-Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) at the basic level with a wide range of applications
  • 3-Rs (recover, redesign, and remanufacture) that prompts introspection into business processes and innovation
  • additional 3-Rs (refurbish, repair, and refuse) that involves mature ecosystem and cross-overs between businesses and sectors.

Leveraging our exhaustive experience of working with various Government and corporate entities on different aspects of circular economy, we envision a holistic approach for navigating the transition to circular economy. Given the current environmental and market imperatives, we foresee the need to lower the use of virgin material or resources in provision of goods and services, and maximise value across the product life cycle. These need to be taken up urgently by businesses if they are to achieve greater competitiveness in the market in the long run. PwC provides services across the circularity process chain which include:

Developing and implementing circular economy strategy and roadmaps

We have developed multi-dimensional data-oriented models and toolkits to assist in decision making, policy and strategy development, stakeholder management, identifying high value–least cost solutions, assessing barriers and eventualities, device frameworks, circularity and waste management plans, implementation plans and CSR plans. PwC offers expert services for implementing circularity through innovative solutions – for example, by using technologies like SAP for circularity in product portfolio management or blockchain to monitor record-keeping of circularity across the value chain. Another such instance is when we supported one of our Government clients to develop policies, programmes and strategies, and provided handholding throughout the implementation phase and monitoring support towards implementation of a USD 1 billion circularity programme covering a population of 40 million people, and helped in creating a market-based ecosystem on circularity in the target region. We also supported the state government in facilitating circularity investments in various sectors like metals (steel, aluminium), fertilisers, cement and waste recycling/waste to wealth industries.

Reforming institutions and optimising industrial operations

Our customisable approach is designed to evaluate opportunities across the four circular business model categories:

  • value and resource recovery, including industrial ecology
  • circular design and production and green manufacturing
  • optimal use
  • circular support, facilitators, enablers and marketplaces.

Further, development of systems based on international guidelines and institutional development – including the key identified stakeholders across value chain – are integrated as the building blocks of the transformation process. We work with industries to identify risks and work towards obtaining resources and facilitating solutions. For example, we supported a global fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) brand on their path towards plastic circularity, with focus on plastic packaging and associated extended producer responsibility (EPR).

Circularity assessment

We support companies in facilitating a closed-loop production, reducing waste generation and impact on the environment through detailed assessment of the product life cycle. This involves identifying the scope for reducing the environment impact across processes – ranging from sourcing raw materials to managing waste. We advise on identifying the pain points and scope for changes in supply chain, conducting impact assessments, and developing life cycle modelling. Adopting the life cycle assessment (LCA) approach for industrial processes and focusing on changes is a tested tool for achieving high impact on waste reduction.

Compliances, commitments and certifications

With the heightening sensitisation of governing bodies across the world, regulatory interventions and requirements are anticipated to promote faster transition to the circular economy model. Corporates may experience an increasing pressure from their respective governments for commitment and progressive improvement in performance, with respect to the adoption of circular initiatives. PwC assists corporate clients in complying with statutory requirements of their region and facilitates clients to achieve their commitments and get recognised by international bodies on circular economies. For example, we have assisted clients on compliances as per Indian regulatory requirements towards India’s extended producer responsibility laws, besides solid waste and plastic waste management rules, battery management and handling rules and hazardous waste rules.

  • Investors are keenly watching how their investments are enabling responsible supply chains. As the global fund flows are increasingly exposed to closer scrutiny on carbon emissions, resource intensity, human rights violation and tax transparency, corporates are looking at cost-effective methods to adopt responsible supply chain practices.
  • Our understanding of the complexity of supply chain management, deep understanding of the ESG issues in the value chain and sector-specific expertise together can help you understand where the priority ESG issues lie in your supply chain and supply you with cost-effective methods to address them.
  • Multi-layered supply chains cutting organisational and country boundaries require a pragmatic approach to enhance ESG performance of the supply chain. Our digitally enabled solutions that can accelerate the engagement with suppliers and measure and track specific ESG key performance indicators (KPIs) across supply chains, can also provide a high impact solution to our customers.
  • We can help you to establish a supplier ESG framework in alignment with prominent supplier rating agencies that can endorse responsible supply chain performance to a wide range of global customers.
  • We support our clients in integrating environmentally and financially viable practices into the end-to-end supply chain and asset life cycle. We also assist them in optimising logistics and warehousing to reduce emissions, adopting a circular economic system aimed at minimising waste and sustainable use of resources – from product design and development to material selection, (including raw material extraction or agricultural regeneration), manufacturing, packaging, transportation, warehousing, distribution, consumption, return, disposal and net zero emissions.
  • We also help companies to assess and de-risk supply chains from issues related to sustainability scarcity.
  • Complexity of ESG KPIs require multiple technical competence to design measurement and tracking systems. The firm’s technology team with extensive experience in various digital technologies can help you to identify, architect, develop, implement and support complex digital technology solutions to measure, track and report ESG performance across your value chain.
  • PwC India’s team is also experienced in providing simple point solutions and tools to manage the ESG reporting in India, requirements in alignment with prominent frameworks such as Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), BRSR and International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC). These solutions can be deployed in your own private cloud, or you may use the highly secure cloud environments managed by PwC.
  • As ESG reporting is a continuous process, PwC India has competencies and teams to support management of the ESG data solutions and provide various kinds of managed services offerings. The firm’s partnerships with prominent digital platform providers can help you gain our implementation services, depending on the enterprise platform of your choice, which will give you an optimised total cost of ownership throughout the life cycle of the solution.
  • ESG requires a structured approach to capacity building. The National Guidelines on Responsible Business Conduct bestow the responsibility of creating awareness and capacity building on the top management, making ESG capacity and required skill sets a boardroom issue. Our ESG capacity building team can develop and deliver tailor-made ESG capacity building programmes at an optimised cost, through various delivery models.
  • Our capacity building services address various levels of the organisation specifically – top management sensitisation workshops, focused functional training on ESG for various functions, and organisations wide webinars or e-learning programmes with automated evaluation capabilities. PwC India’s ESG consulting and capacity building services are applicable to the value chain partners such as suppliers or contractors, offering various optimised delivery models.
  • We assist clients in making a smooth transition to a net zero economy, where no new greenhouse emissions are added to the climate as a result of their company or economic activity. We are working with governments to create ESG frameworks and city decarbonisation tool for sustainable urban transitions. Our sectoral experts can help you determine, measure and offset scope 1, scope 2 and scope 3 emissions from various sectors, in order to develop an effective decarbonisation strategy for the sustainable transition of your company. With this value chain-wide GHG footprint, your organisation will be able to translate the implications of carbon into business-specific parameters.
  • The Companies Act, 2013 made CSR spending mandatory for companies (small- to large-sized), and has now defined the regulatory boundaries governing CSR activities by bringing in more transparency and accountability, right from the board level. This necessitated a newer level of alacrity and flexibility on the part of corporates to gear up and respond to the requirements posed by Section 135 of the Act, including the most recent Companies (CSR) Amendment Rules 2021, which mandated companies to ensure strategic CSR investments, leading to effective spending and disclosures. These new amendments intend to promote accountability and transparency within the CSR ecosystem with regard to implementation and reporting.
  • We are working with several corporates and/or their foundations to help them through this journey and support in providing strategic direction to their CSR programme design, implementation and reporting as per the intent and spirit of CSR rules. We have been helping them navigate through the new challenges along the continuum in this dynamic landscape of CSR. PwC’s CSR Advisory practice helps clients to strategise and manage their CSR programmes, and assess impacts on the economic, environmental and social parameters, within their operations and in their supply chains, as well as report on the same. We offer significant value to our clients (at different stages of the CSR life cycle) based on the CSR maturity level, with customised services for planning, assessment, implementation and evaluation.

Our key services at each stage of the CSR life cycle are outlined below

Impact assessment study

As part of the mandatory requirement of the CSR Rules, companies of a particular threshold need to conduct independent impact assessment study on projects more than INR 1 crore, which would be reported back to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) as part of the company’s annual reporting. We support all types of companies beyond compliance requirements to assess the impact wherein assessment of their projects are done to not only adhere to statutory requirements but also help in decoding the impact created by the projects through social return on investment (SROI) where required. Moreover, we evaluate performance for strategic redirection and reinvestment. We have conducted multi-sectoral impact assessment studies of over 1,000 projects across India, with a varied clientele – including Government bodies, corporates, foundations and others.

Other strategic services

These include the services that help in preparing, implementing and monitoring a Section 135-compliant and cohesive CSR policy that is need-based, strategic, integrated with your value chain, iterative and geared towards business responsibility reporting. Our key services include the following

  • CSR policy formulation and strategy articulation, in compliance with Section 135 of the Companies Act
  • identification/finalisation of CSR investment options
  • implementation support for CSR programmes, including setting up CSR governance frameworks and capacity building support
  • assessment of progress of CSR programmes, along with monitoring and evaluation of progress and impact, including use of digital tools
  • assistance in process documentation and reporting on the CSR performance
