SEEM Sustainability through Engagement, Empowerment & Mobilisation
Helping leading FIs and real economy large businesses undergo a systemic change for their Just NZ transition, in turn, they become longterm sustainable through std. NZ Transition Plans based on CTM (Purpose, universal ESG Metrics etc) & the regTech prod. Compliance by Design for Corp. & Inv. Banks
The financial world has the responsibility and power to steer the economy towards one that is climate-friendly, inclusive and sustainable for the long run. While doing so they will not only solve the climate issues but many other bigger challenges the world faces today. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are achievable when the investor community, the investee and the entire supply chain transforms and becomes long-term focused and sustainable. They have a Purpose, a higher Purpose beyond just making a profit that becomes the core of this transformation for their long-term sustainability and disclose their standardised NZ Transition Plans and updates on their progress & other relevant details at a standardised frequency. The FIs capture them accurately and use them in meaningful ways to measure businesses’ creditworthiness while considering them alongside their financial performances. The FIs comply with all regulations and respond to their own business needs with agility etc.. At the same time, FIs disclose their standardised NZ transition plans and updates on their progress & other relevant details while consolidating required metrics from their portfolio companies' & assets' (derived from FI's) std. NZ Transition Plans & making disclosures in a standardised way and frequency. In this, we focus on the leading FIs and large businesses in the real economy who are also in turn responsible for their supply chains and values chains, with a possibility of its extension in customised form and under conditions across the financial and real economy to address overall Net zero & SDGs.
As a Management Consultancy & regTech startup, we enable leading FIs and large businesses in the real economy to achieve their Net Zero and, while doing so, their SDGs through their multi-stakeholder focus directly or indirectly, at the same time, become sustainable for the long term through a systemic change, comprising of -
1. Standardised Transformation Methodology CTM (Change thru Movement) results in the entities creating their standardised NZ Transition Plans including Purpose, universal ESG metrics etc. with variations for leading FIs and Large Businesses in the real economy to enable them to achieve their Net Zero and, while doing so, their SDGs through their multi-stakeholder focus directly or indirectly, at the same time, become sustainable for the long term. It will enable the entities to discover their Purpose, a higher purpose beyond just making a profit, let people see their aspirations towards their purpose and take initiatives, create projects, experiment, innovate, share stories, inspire others and let a movement begin and conditions support. It will shift the culture of the entity away from command and control and value initiatives and experimentation thereby shift the entire culture towards creativity and innovation. The self-initiated projects will deliver towards entity's Purpose which also means towards one or more of their SDGs. At a set period say every year it is then key for the entity to declare its targeted relative focus across SDGs upon measuring its actual and having had discovered its ideal already to enable its auditability. As well as measure its standardised sectoral impact parameters’ current state, baseline them and set their targets in alignment with their sectoral pathways in the case of real-economy large businesses and derived from the underlying companies and assets in the case of leading FIs. Then the constant yield of the impactful and credible projects will bring traction towards the achievement of targets for their standardised sectoral Impact Parameters. The collective impact direct or indirect from the self initiated projects will ideally align with the entity's targeted relative focus across the SDGs and the credibility of the projects and their non-financial outcomes will be ensured through their project governance framework at the entity level (through process assurance & audits). So the FIs and the large businesses in the real economy will achieve their Net Zero and, while doing so, their SDGs through their multi-stakeholder focus and long-term view directly or indirectly and thereby also achieve their long-term sustainability. Thus these FIs will support the businesses in the real economy (directly or through other underlying FIs) and their journeys by funding them with a long-term view while incorporating the non financial aspects alongside the financial numbers of their performances.
2. We note that ESG metrics can be quantitative or qualitative. We see that leading FIs and large businesses in the real economy (in turn their supply chains and value chains) needed to transform to be able to generate ESG data as their focus was not on these goals maybe as late as the start of Covid-19. For them it is a transformation journey now. While we help them transform to address their Net Zero and, while doing so, their SDGs, at the same time become sustainabile for the long term, using our standardised transformation methodology CTM and the standardised NZ transition plans based on CTM with variations for the leading FIs and large businesses in the real economy, we measure the quality of this transition to arrive at the qualitative measurements that become universal and comparable across sectors. The other part of the universal ESG metrics come from the quantitative measurements of the entity's standardised sectoral impact parameters across SDGs for real-economy large businesses and derived from their underlying companies and assets in the case of leading FIs. Their baselines and targets are defined wherein the targets are in alignment with the sectoral pathways in the case of real-economy large businesses and both the baselines and targets are derived from the underlying companies and assets in the case of leading FIs, and then converting them into universal measurements by recognising that entity's total impact (direct/indirect) towards its one Purpose is equal to the sum of its impacts (direct/indirect) across SDGs and thus entity declaring its targeted relative focus across SDGs as above. In the case of a leading FI its impact parameters' value consolidates its portfolio companies’ and assets' (which ultimately comes from some real economy companies') standardised impact parameters' data apart from its own and also the FI includes its data on %capital used into its portfolio companies and assets' additionally when calculating its own relative focus across SDGs using our objective process. Also to note we consider 16 SDGs, leaving aside the 17th as it is created to support the achievement of other 16.
3. Also, we solve the Corporate and Investment bank's challenges in complying with regulations, their core issues of data silo, enable risk measurements more accurately and discretely, incorporate non-financial aspects alongside financial numbers in measuring businesses’ creditworthiness, bring more agility in responding to their own business needs, create a bank-wide MIS etc. through the regTech application "Compliance by Design" (CBD) and thereby enable them to deliver towards their purpose more powerfully.
Also, we imagine an extension of CTM in full and in part with modification through other entities in a proposed model across the financial & real economy to address economy-wide Net Zero & SDGs provided at least part CTM with Discovering Purpose and std. NZ Transition Plan templates with Universal ESG metrics for part CTM, are mandated across countries, say through G20 or so. Then we also imagine the long-term Sustainability of Entities, the foundation of CTM becoming a curriculum in universities and business schools.
Our mission is to create an ecosystem that nurtures entities to thrive, grow and become sustainable for the future.
