Together, dss+ and the client developed a detailed understanding of material ESG aspects across operations, then developed maturity and materiality analysis based on performance baselines, benchmark analyses and competitive intelligence. This laid the groundwork for an ESG strategy roadmap designed to address the most relevant and feasible action items, including policies, procedures and entity-level controls, in the most efficient manner.

In addition, a key governance mechanism was developed, defining responsibilities for sustainability personnel as well as metrics to support execution across the organisation.
