Corporate Governance & ESG

Amidst the fast-evolving regulatory landscape of environmental social governance, Pragma takes a practical approach to Environmental Social Governance through a simple, five step processes to creating or reviewing a sustainability framework tailored to your organisation.

From small businesses to ASX listed entities, we offer personalised advice suitable to each stage of an organisation’s ESG journey. Our ground up approach moves from a comprehensive review of existing governance frameworks, policies and procedures to the creation of a sustainability framework through the below 5 step process.

Our 5 step process to achieve a Sustainability Framework is simply as follows:

  1. 1

    Review – the first step is to assess your current ESG position;

  2. 2

    Identify – we can then identify your impact through understanding your organisation;

  3. 3

    Advise – our written advice which includes a recommended Sustainability Framework to fit your organisation;

  4. 4

    Implement – we draft relevant charters, policies and procedures and meet with board members, executives, management and stakeholders to implement a Sustainability Framework; and

  5. 5

    Assess – finally, we create a due diligence process in which we can enable you to monitor the effectiveness of the Sustainability Framework.

Our general advice includes:

  • General advice on current and evolving ESG reporting requirements including advice on sustainability reporting and regulatory requirements for corporate disclosures relating to sustainability reporting

  • General governance advice, including external assessment and review of current corporate governance framework, strategy, processes, policies, plans and procedures and adhoc company secretarial assistance

What our clients say

I recently had a complex legal matter that involved some unpacking and finessing. I engaged the services of Pragma Lawyers and the outcome was very favourable for us. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Pragma to my clients and I will contine to use their legal services for any future needs.

"Pragma recently facilitated appropriate workplace behaviour training for 200 employees at BDO Perth. Libbi and Max presented the content in an informative and interactive manner, and were able to apply a commercial lens to the training. The case study examples used in the training were highly relevant to our industry and helped engage our people in what can be a complex and ambiguous area of legislation. I have had positive feedback from Partners and employees following the session and I would have no hesitation in recommending Pragma for future training opportunities."

"We used Pragma to draw up new staff contracts following the new WHS Act and found their service to be seamless. Quick response times and price transparently provided up front. They happily answered our follow up queries and understood our industry specific needs amazingly quickly. Will happily use again as our go-to legal support."

Aaron is an extremely hard working and dedicated professional. His commitment to client service is second to none, and hes a good bloke too. Its probably a bit cliché to say Pragma are pragmatic but really that’s a great way to describe it. The reason I do recommend Pragma is beacuse I know when I send a client or an associate to Pragma that theyre going to be happy with the outcome that they receive.

I regularly refer my clients and my personal legal work to Aaron and his team. They are very much at the forefront of the industry with fixed fees and the quality of service. I would highly recommend Aaron and his team at Pragma Legal without reservation.
