We help you respond to the CDP Climate Change, CDP Water, DJSI, EcoVadis, and other sustainability questionnaires that are increasingly important communications tools for the investor community.

We provide insights into the overlaps and opportunities between the various frameworks to maximize the business value of responding while streamlining your company’s efforts. Investor sustainability surveys now demand that companies identify risks, opportunities, and financial and strategic implications of environmental, social, and economic topics.

Using a streamlined, single development process, BrownFlynn develops survey responses in a way that prompts discussion and decision-making to establish your company’s value proposition for material elements within multiple survey frameworks.

BrownFlynn Lights Up Times Square

Early in September 2017, BrownFlynn and Uplifting Leaders* (*Who Happen to Be Women), a book written by the firm’s Co-Founders Barb Brown and Margie Flynn, lit up the Nasdaq MarketSite Tower in Times Square. The book captures insights and stories of 25 of the nation’s most accomplished and influential women in business—including Adena Friedman, President and CEO of Nasdaq, on how they empower and uplift others as they seek to progress in their lives and careers. In recognition of BrownFlynn’s 20th anniversary, all net proceeds of the book will be donated to the YWCA Greater Cleveland to “uplift” and support the education of young women transitioning out of foster care.
