Climate Change and Sustainability Services

Climate change and sustainability and its environmental, social and economic impact continue to rise up the agendas of governments and organizations around the world, including Indonesia.

Businesses face actual and prospective regulatory requirements and the need to meet stakeholder expectations, as well as respond to opportunities presented for revenue generation and cost reduction. These translate to fundamental and complex transformation for many organizations and the embedding of sustainability into core business activities to achieve short-term objectives and create long-term shareholder value.

EY’s global and multi-disciplinary team combines our core experience in assurance, tax, transactions and advisory with climate change and sustainability skills and deep industry knowledge. Tailored services are provided, supported by global methodologies with localized adaptation to address issues relating to the market’s specific needs.

Our areas of focus include:

  • Climate change and energy
  • Sustainability reporting and assurance
  • Sustainability advisory
  • Impact: Outcome measurement and valuation
  • Health, safety and environment
  • Climate change and energy

    In today’s environment, businesses can no longer ignore the physical and regulatory impact of climate change. This presents opportunities, not just challenges, for organizations that act decisively. During the international climate negotiations at the UN’s Conference of Parties (COP21) in Paris, Indonesia committed to achieving 29% carbon reduction in carbon emissions by 2030. This has increased the need for responsive participation by government and private sector players alike in meeting the targets and more widely in planning for ways to adapt and manage the risks from climate change impacts.

    EY’s climate change and sustainability services can help your organization to address evolving pressures and maximize the opportunities through meeting compliance requirements, managing risks and thinking strategically. These services include:

  • Sustainability reporting and assurance

    More international and leading Indonesian businesses are now seeking new ways of communicating non-financial performance as stakeholders demand greater transparency to assess long term value. Indonesia is experiencing an increasing trend across industries of issuing non-financial reports.

    Globally-recognized reporting frameworks such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and Integrated Reporting will have an impact on the way businesses report and the way assurance is provided. EY has been globally involved in the development of these frameworks and we can help businesses transition to these new ways of communicating their sustainability performance.
