Why Work with 3R?
The Paradigm Shift is Here
Concerns from and for customers, clients, workforce, shareholders, communities, and governments, as well as our planet’s depleting resources and changing climate have warranted a demand for a paradigm shift. This shift is happening through the implementation of transparent, environmentally, economically, and socially responsible practices. Companies failing to consider their resilience, along with their impact on the planet and their people, will fall behind their competition as these thought processes become the global standard.
It is simply not enough to consider economic efficiency in business today. Due to the shocks and stressors that affect social, environmental, and economic systems with increasing frequency, organizations must evaluate their ability to survive as part of a resilience plan. Contributing to sustainable development is the main objective of ESG. This overarching goal is recognized by a combination of social equity, healthy ecosystems, and honest organizational governance.
3R ESG Expertise
3R takes an integrated, holistic approach, utilizing a number of sustainability frameworks such as the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), ISO 26000, AA1000, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) to inform sustainability programs. The 3R consultants will work with your company to identify systems, peer benchmarking, and industry context to identify material impacts and define a prioritized action plan for continual improvement.
3R Green Building Expertise
