Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)

Our commitment to ESG

 

Lycaon is committed to building legitimate Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) credentials. We have commenced ESG reporting as a tangible first step in our ESG journey.

 

We greatly value ESG considerations as they enable us to better identify material risks and growth potential, leading to better-informed decisions and business outcomes. Equally, our commitment to ESG creates a consistent and measurable approach that helps us contribute to building a more prosperous and fulfilled society and a more sustainable relationship with our planet.

 

Universal ESG metrics

 

We have commenced ESG reporting by making disclosures against the World Economic Forum (WEF) Stakeholder Capitalism framework. The WEF framework is a set of common metrics for sustainable value creation captured in 21 core ESG disclosures. We use this universal ESG framework to align our mainstream reporting on performance against ESG indicators.

 

We selected the WEF Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics as the most appropriate ESG disclosure framework to start our ESG journey. It leverages a variety of existing frameworks and is intentionally built to be a steppingstone to begin building capacity and capability in ESG reporting.

 

By including ESG metrics in our mainstream reporting and integrating them into our governance, business strategy, and performance management process, we set out to demonstrate that we diligently consider all pertinent risks and opportunities in running our business. We demonstrate ongoing commitment to ESG by sharing the progress we make toward ESG disclosures in quarterly updates in combination with making our disclosures transparently available in the public domain.

 

Standardised disclosure technology 

 

We believe that ESG reporting is a continuous process of disclosure and improvement. To promptly commence disclosing against the WEF ESG framework, we use impact measurement service provider Socialsuite’s dedicated ESG Go platform.

 

ESG Go is the affordable and standardised solution for small-cap companies to easily begin ESG reporting. As a dedicated project management tool, we find it excels in making the WEF framework accessible and operational. We us it to track our disclosure progress, demonstrate our ESG performance against the WEF ESG framework, and share our journey of building robust ESG credentials.

 

Our ESG disclosure progress

 

Our ESG progress and disclosures are captured under the four pillars of the WEF ESG framework: Governance, Planet, People, and Prosperity. Our ESG Go baseline report shows the starting point of our ESG journey and highlights the indicators we are progressing to disclose.
