ESG

We advise on corporate sustainability from a business perspective.

At Nalba, we believe that sustainability is an attitude that ensures competitiveness and business continuity. Integrating sustainability into organizations is a cross-cutting process that goes beyond compliance to create and retain value. The challenge we face is not merely one of conservation; the challenge is to remain and grow in an environment where competitiveness will be conditioned by scarcity, both of physical and human resources.

The approach we propose is linked to business because we understand that sustainability adds long-term value to organizations in the form of a competitive advantage. We believe that sustainability should not be framed merely as a compilation of actions oriented towards corporate responsibility or philanthropy, but rather as value creation that enables the organization to be better prepared than its competitors to face future market challenges.

Our approach is business-oriented because we recognize that sustainability provides long-term value to organizations as a competitive advantage. We believe that sustainability should not be confined solely to a series of actions related to corporate responsibility or philanthropy, but rather as a value creation strategy that positions the organization to be better prepared than its competitors to meet future market challenges.

We help you design and implement your Corporate Sustainability Strategy

Companies generally generate performance based on an economic balance. At Nalba, we have found that focusing on a triple bottom line (economic, environmental, social) maximizes the value of the organization and ensures its future continuity. The integration of sustainability into the organization is tied to business strategy, risk management, and reporting.

 

 

Including ESG factors in business strategy involves analyzing future scenarios marked by resource scarcity, varying government commitments in the transition to decarbonized economies, and demands for labor rights. We help you anticipate the future of the global value chain, positioning you in a competitive, solvent, and profitable manner.

Success Stories

Consultancy on Double Materiality Analysis

Consultancy on developing a dual materiality analysis for a public company focused on rural development and environmental conservation.

Context

Dual Materiality Analysis assesses the significance of impacts that a company’s activities generate on the natural and socio-economic environment, as well as the impacts that changes in these environments could have on the company. Nalba supports the company in the development of such analysis.

Methodology

  • Collaborative work with the client to identify and granulate various stakeholders both within and outside the organization.
  • Implementation of environmental, social, and governance topics based on the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) issued by the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG).
  • Guidance during the identification stage of material issues, both internal and external, to determine their significance and intensity.
  • Consultation on assessing impact metrics to evaluate the severity and materiality of impact, as well as financial impact. Similarly, advice was provided on performance metrics of stakeholders to assess the intensity of qualified relationships.

Outcome

Execution of the analysis enables:

  • Improved ESG decision-making by the client, as well as the pinpoint identification of actions to be incorporated into their strategic plans.
  • Prioritization of ESG issues according to their relevance and identified impact for various stakeholders, as well as by them.

Support in the development of the Sustainability Master Plan

Technical assistance for the preparation of the Sustainability Master Plan (PDS) for a credit insurance company with an international presence

Context

Nalba accompanies the company in the development of the Sustainability Master Plan, which is included in its Strategic Plan. The Sustainability Master Plan will be updated annually according to new regulatory and market needs.

Methodology

Taking double materiality analysis as a starting point, five phases of preparation of the PDS were developed.

  1. Setting the sustainability framework
    • Definition of the pillars on which the PDS is based
  2. Identification and setting of actions
    • Definition of the objectives and lines of action for each of the ESG factors considered as materials aligned with the defined mission and vision
  3. Definition of KPIs
    • Definition of the KPIs associated with the performance of the prepared Master Plan
  4. Implementation plan
    • Definition of the plan review and update requirements, allowing the implementation and supervision of the PDS
  5. ESG government definition
    • Definition of a corporate sustainability governance model based on the results of the PDS

Result

Sustainability was incorporated as a relevant part of the company’s strategy, with the aim of positioning it in an advantageous way compared to other market players and clients.
