ESG for Energy Intensive Sectors

Comprehensive energy intensive sector ESG support

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) is a growing concern for the public, investors, and companies. Climate change is raising the pressure on regulators to decarbonize the global economy, driving fundamental change for energy intensive industries. Social demands are pushing companies to go well beyond traditional metrics to include broader measures such as diversity, equity, and inclusion. Corporate governance increasingly requires a strong focus on ESG and new capabilities from boards, executives, and asset managers

CRA’s ESG support builds on a rigorous analytical approach with scenarios mapping global environmental challenges, shifting stakeholder expectations, and increasing emphasis on corporate stewardship. Our understanding of the energy transition across the value chain helps us embed ESG into core operations to help clients navigate the fundamental changes in energy intensive sectors. We strive to unlock factors crucial for long-term resilience without compromising short-term performance and directly support corporate and asset management clients in making and executing significant strategic and operational decisions across organizations.
