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.

Forests & Finance database update 2022
The Forests & Finance Coalition launched the 2022 update of its database on global financial flows towards deforestation-risk commodities, as well as updated policy assessments of the 200 most important banks and investors in global forest-risk commodities in tropical forest regions. Since the Paris agreement was signed, banks have pumped USD 267 billion into forest-risk commodity companies, and as of September 2022, investors held USD 40 billion in bonds and shares in forest-risk commodities. On top of that, almost none of the biggest banks and investors have sufficient Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) policies in place.
