ESG Services – Exceeding Client Expectations for comprehensive ESG (Environment, Sustainability, Governance) Reporting
Daniel A. Huard, LEED Fellow, PMP the Godfather of Sustainability has been very active with governance, advocacy and leadership efforts for decades so having the firm provide ESG Services should come as no surprise. In fact the MDH Evolutions approach followed sees ESG Services offerings substantially expanded as compared others promoting being in the ESG space so much so that Daniel A. Huard, LEED Fellow, PMP the Godfather of Sustainability has been invited to Speak at ESG Asia Forum, assisting with efforts for major Pacific Banking Institutions and presenting at COP28 in Dubai. Most firms are trying to do a software calculation and looking for sensors to do the reporting when we really need to look to historical precedent to guide the efforts and adoption of ESG within organizations and individuals. Huard was quoted “… it is not about some computer accounting system to tally numbers. Again in my view ESG is really about establishing a culture of credibility, transparency, honesty and commitment.”
Huard goes on to share that his perspective on ESG is related to the main social goals and governmental policy oversight within Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) in combination with the Professional Project Management focus on best practices, repeatability, accountability and traceability with governance adopting urban planning’s social learning process linking the community and region’s success to mutually beneficial benchmarks for environmental, social and organizational components. This opinion is informed by Huard’s formal Masters of Urban Planning education his PMI PMP career Project Executive experience and multi-disciplined professional background. This model when encompassed sees the ESG movement’s private sector be transparent with their corporate social responsibility as well. The ESG initiative according to some was launched by the United Nations which established the three linked priorities to provide management and market adoption encouragement. The ESG initiative is gaining acceptance from both the investment community and the responsible corporate community as well representing more than US$30 trillion in assets under management as shared in Greenbiz in August 2021.
Huard as a past League of Indian Nations of North America Ambassador to the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, focused on international sustainability programs, social and educational programs and native rights recognition and advocacy. This governance background sees tremendous alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to protect our environment and the planet, improve lives by bringing an end to poverty, embracing access to equity and education to improve the lives and prospects of every person, on planet earth. The 15-year plan to achieve the Goals (SDGs) is highly dependent on individuals, corporations and organizations adopting a process to track, report and bring continuous improvement even incrementally documented within ESG reporting, 2030 is not that far away. We as a course of action in reporting we follow that good governance initiation and utilize the UN’s SDG as 17 cornerstone areas to report alignment, impact and progress upon.
