Projects

To illustrate our broad expertise, covering many different economic sectors, commodities, sustainability themes and countries, this page gives an overview of the different projects executed by Profundo over the years. In the menu, you can filter the projects by thematic area. Each project is described briefly and where available the project portfolio - such as reports, brochures or presentations - is provided. Attention is also given to the exposure generated by the project in the media, in politics and elsewhere.

 

We analyse the financial parameters of companies and assess how companies and their financiers could be affected in different scenarios by Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks related to deforestation, climate change emissions, human rights abuses, resource depletion, health impacts and other sustainability issues.
We analyse the various human rights and other sustainability risks in international commodity supply chains and identify what different stakeholders can do to foster sustainable development of value chains in agriculture, forestry, livestock, energy, fisheries and mineral sectors.
We analyse how companies are financed by banks, shareholders and others financiers, to assess what financiers could do to foster sustainable corporate practices. Also, we dig into ownership structures and the schemes companies have set up to minimise tax payments.
We assess and benchmark responsible investment and credit policies of banks and investors and we advise on how policies can be improved and implemented through screening, voting, engagement and exclusion strategies.

Financing of oil & gas projects in the Arctic region
"There are currently 599 oil and gas fields in the Arctic, in production, under development/evaluation or discovered. In the next five years Arctic oil & gas production is set to increase by 20%, led by companies like Gazprom, ConocoPhillips and TotalEnergies. In the past 5 years, commercial banks have channeled more than $ 314 billion to these companies. Top backers of Arctic expansionists include banks committed to restricting oil & gas financing in the Arctic such as JPMorgan Chase, Barclays, Citigroup and BNP Paribas. "
