Strategy & Transformation

Strategy & Transformation

ERM is a trusted partner for sustainability strategy and transformation. We help clients navigate regulatory complexities, mitigate risks and harness sustainability opportunities to unlock value, boost business growth and increase resiliency.  

Unlock stakeholder value with sustainability-led strategic transformation

Organizations are missing out on opportunities to boost competitive advantage and long-term business growth when tackling sustainability drivers, such as decarbonization.

Today’s winners are leveraging regulations and disclosure obligations as an invaluable strategic discovery exercise. Robust, digitally enabled, sustainability reporting is providing data driven insight on new sources of value and business risk.

Significant investments are being made in energy transition solutions. As part of the shift to net zero, organizations are looking to create new operating models, reduce costs, rethink supply chains and drive wider value creation.

Strategy means nothing if it is not actionable. A successful strategy must combine an implementable roadmap with deep technical, scientific and practical expertise that translates goals into actions.

Build business resilience and adapt to sustainability shifts by harnessing value creation opportunities and transforming operating models.

Define a winning strategy

ERM works with clients to create transformational strategies based on sustainability trends and quantification of potential value creation upsides. We identify the strategic shifts needed to capitalize on these opportunities – from changing products and services to exploring new markets and reallocating capital.

Build an actionable plan

When ERM builds a value-led strategy, we consider how it will be integrated into existing business plans and executed on the ground. ERM provides support for key implementation steps – from accelerating permitting for clean energy capital projects to procuring renewables and building more sustainable supply chains.

Humanize the transformation journey

People need to be at the core of any transformation journey. Developing a behavioral strategy helps to accelerate positive change by empowering and aligning the entire organization. ERM works closely with senior leadership during strategic planning processes and helps to simplify and de-risk change management.
