Helping businesses go green
Baker Tilly member firms partner with pioneering organisations to help corporations make a positive impact on the environment and society.
At a time when corporations globally are under scrutiny from stakeholders to efficiently monitor, manage and report on environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives and sustainability objectives, two Baker Tilly member firms have partnered with leading organisations that are helping corporations make a positive impact on the environment and society.
Baker Tilly US LLP has announced strategic collaborations with Sustain.Life and Sumday – two organisations transforming emissions-reporting solutions for businesses of all sizes. In Malaysia, Baker Tilly has announced a partnership with Novem ESG, a provider of ESG software, training and consultation services.
“With the regulatory landscape rapidly changing, the need for effective controls over non-financial reporting is more important than ever,” said Srinand Yalamanchili, Baker Tilly US’s ESG and Sustainability Director.
“Combining Baker Tilly’s industry-focused ESG and sustainability advisory and assurance expertise with the platforms of Sustain.Life and Sumday creates a comprehensive and adaptable suite of emissions-reporting solutions that empower organisations to measure, manage and report their environmental impact.”
Sustain.Life is a leading carbon management SaaS platform that empowers companies of all sizes to measure and report their carbon emissions while providing guided actions to meet their reduction goals. The platform equips organisations with intuitive tools to efficiently navigate and manage intricate emissions profiles and complex supply chains, while also providing a host of features to support comprehensive decarbonization efforts across scopes 1, 2 and 3.
Sumday, a transparent and robust greenhouse gas accounting platform, holds ISO certification and is SOC2 compliant. Sumday is used by organisations of all sizes, from public to small and medium-sized companies, to affordably track and report on their emissions to an audit-ready standard.
Speaking on the development in Malaysia, Baker Tilly Malaysia group managing partner Andrew Heng said the partnership marks a significant milestone in Malaysia’s ESG industry.
“It is very important for businesses to start the ESG journey on the right foot and many organisations are looking to professionals, such as Baker Tilly and Novem, for direction.
“By combining Baker Tilly Malaysia’s expertise with Novem’s offerings, clients will benefit from a holistic approach to ESG that drives sustainability, transparency, and excellence in corporate governance.”
