In the process of analysing the ESG performance of Vellum’s investment portfolio, we identified the need for and developed a full set of ESG tools to:
- Encourage environmental value and social value creation;
- Enhance ESG measurement and management;
- Ensure long-term sustainability both financially and non-financially.
With a thorough understanding and extensive practice of financial reporting frameworks and standards in multiple markets and regions, Vellum has applied the core principles of financial reporting to ESG reporting.
Just like in financial management, it’s important to focus on both sides: cost efficiency/reduction and more importantly, revenue creation. This ensures we’re not only minimising negative environmental and social impact, but more importantly, actively creating environmental and social value.
ESG investing can encompass a range of factors and industries, such as:
- Agriculture – including aquaculture, forestry and indoor agriculture
- Clean energy
- Environmental technology
- Fresh water creation and usage efficiency
- Recycling and waste management
- Real estate with positive environmental impacts
- Green construction and materials
- Affordable Living
- Green insurance and green finance
Vellum is compliant with all regulatory requirements and adheres to best practice in corporate governance.
We are licensed to provide financial services, including:
- Strategic planning
- Investment advisory
- Financial instruments – structure and design
- Funds – including corporate trusts
- Asset management and operation
- Return/exit management
The Vellum ESG Certificate is part of Vellum ESG Management Tools, it represents the ESG Value created by certain projects or organisations, validated under Vellum ESG Framework and assessed against the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
It empowers ESG-focused organisations to effectively measure and validate their ESG efforts and outcomes.
The end goal is to allow market mechanisms to drive industrial and commercial processes that reduce negative ESG impacts, increase positive ESG impacts, and support ESG initiatives, to achieve better ESG outcomes overall.
How impact is measured (Total ESG Value Created – Total ESG Value Consumed) x ESG Scores = no. of Units on Vellum ESG Certificate
Vellum ESG Value Created is a financial measurement of the ESG Value being contributed to the society and environment; it is based on UN SDGs and calculated in Australian dollars.
Vellum ESG Value Consumed is a financial measurement of ESG Value being utilised by a certain project or organisation. It constitutes what is taken or extracted from the society or environment, for eg. energy, water, natural resources, donations, government grants, tax concessions, or community support.
Vellum ESG Scores are part of Vellum ESG Measurement Tools, they represent the general ESG performance of a project or organisation. Vellum ESG scores are based on industry data, surveys and other information provided. The score range is 0 to 5, the highest positive score being 5.
Vellum ESG Certificate is to certify an organization’s ESG Units earned in the reporting period and reflect the ESG outcomes.
