our process to sustainability insights


At BayNel, our process for gaining sustainability insights is tailored to the unique needs of each client. We begin by identifying the key ESG issues relevant to your business and industry, followed by a comprehensive stakeholder engagement process to gather valuable input from both internal and external stakeholders.

  • Stakeholder Engagement

We conduct surveys, interviews and focus groups to understand the perspectives and concerns of your key stakeholders, such as employees, customers and community members. This helps us identify the sustainability issues that matter most to them, which can then inform the overall plan.

  • Sector Analysis & Peer Review

We perform an in-depth analysis of your industry, using our bespoke scoring system to assess the performance across a range of material sustainability issues. This review highlights areas where your industry is placing a high focus, as well as potential leadership opportunities for your business.

  • Regulatory and Non-Regulatory Review

We evaluate the current and upcoming regulatory landscape, as well as non-regulatory disclosure frameworks, to ensure that your sustainability strategy is compliant and aligned with best practices.

  • Materiality Assessment

Using the insights gathered from stakeholder engagement and sector analysis, we conduct a materiality assessment to evaluate the relative importance of different sustainability issues. This assessment establishes the business case for setting strategic targets and actions in certain areas, whilst clarifying the ESG issues that are less urgent to address.

The precise approach we take depends on the type of materiality assessment being conducted and the business involved. The end result is a set of materiality insights and a strategic framework that guides your sustainability efforts.
