    Successful organizations depend on their reputation for keeping promises, respecting laws and behaving ethically to maintain stakeholder trust. Therefore, we help organizations protect and restore enterprise and financial reputation. We assist companies and their legal counsel to investigate facts, resolve disputes and manage regulatory challenges. We put integrity at the heart of compliance programs to help better manage ethical and reputational risks.

    In Forensic & Integrity Services we help mitigate the lose of trust by advising on the implementation of internal controls, conducting stakeholder due diligence, and advising on data safety. Besides helping to mitigate, we are also capable of leading forensic investigations to uncover the true course of action. This is done by, for example, restoring and securing data such as e-mails and chat correspondences to search for signs of planned fraud.

    Our assistance also includes “Anti-Social Dumping measurements, support for the Danish Judicial system as expert witnesses, investigative tasks internally for our clients, and much more.

  • Climate Change and Sustainability Services

    In order to survive and grow in an increasingly competitive and accountable business environment, organizations are required to report not only on their financial performance, but also their nonfinancial performance.

    Ignoring sustainability, environmental, health and safety (EHS) and climate change risks and stakeholder concerns around these issues is no longer an option. While CFOs may not have traditionally led the way, they are increasingly expected to play a more active role.

    EY’s Climate Change and Sustainability Services (CCaSS) team understands the evolving pressure surrounding these challenges. As a result, we help companies respond by understanding and evaluating the broader value impacts and outcomes, identifying the opportunities, and supporting the reporting of nonfinancial performance risks to their stakeholders.
