Hilton Supra, Vice Chairman of ztudium Group, interviews Paul Sutcliffe, Founder & Director of EVORA Global, a professional real asset consultancy providing sustainable commercial solutions, in the latest episode of citiesabc YouTube podcast. The two discuss the imperative of integrating ESG strategies in modern business culture. The interview is live on citiesabc and openbusinesscouncil YouTube channels.
Featuring EVORA Global for the second time on citiesabc YouTube podcast, Hilton Supra brings an imperative discussion on integrating Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategies in overall business processes and operations; this time with Paul Sutcliffe, the Founder and Director of EVORA Global.
A sustainability professional with over two decades of experience, Paul Sutcliffe specialises in providing strategic sustainability advice across the UK and Europe, focusing on integrating sustainability with business strategy and effective management systems.
According to him, integrating ESG strategies into a business's overarching strategy is not merely a checkbox for corporate responsibility; it has become a fundamental imperative for sustainable and resilient enterprises. Beyond compliance and ethical considerations, businesses are recognising that ESG integration can be a powerful driver of long-term value creation.
“Sustainability needs to be integrated into decision making and all aspects of your business. So, you need to think about where do I incorporate sustainability, understand the risks and opportunities, and then develop programs to improve that and find out how it can add value to the business", he said.
He explained to Hilton that EVORA Global not only strategises but also advises the clients to adopt ESG practices as part of overall business operations.
“We see ourselves as long-term partners and trusted advisors to our clients through the application technology, advisory support, and strategy revising to truly deliver change, that protects against risk and maximizes opportunity”, he says.
