virtual Chief Sustainability Officer (vCSO)

Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) matters are key considerations in the financial services sector and are becoming more crucial for the success of organisations.

As the landscape continues to evolve at a rapid pace, in particular around ESG regulatory and reporting requirements, it can seem difficult to negotiate the technical jargon, standards and regulations to create positive action on sustainability.

As a FTSE 250 company, JTC understands the specific demands that ESG opportunities and responsibilities can place on organisations and the resultant need for specialist knowledge and focus to get it right.

Through our experience and expertise as a professional services provider, we deliver industry and jurisdictionally agnostic solutions to support clients with their own implementation of ESG strategy, policies and reporting. Our approach is based on deep knowledge of fund, corporate and sophisticated private client services overlaid with extensive ESG expertise, which allows us to better understand the unique demands that our clients face and the bespoke solutions needed.


“By marrying our deep expertise and decades of experience in the professional services markets to our growing ESG capabilities, we are able to offer clients a potent and almost unique combination of skills and experience.”

What We Do

JTC’s virtual Chief Sustainability Officer or “vCSO” gives clients access to the benefits of a professional Chief Sustainability Officer and associated team on a flexible, outsourced basis, thereby reducing associated overheads and creates a roadmap for a bespoke Sustainability programme based on three core pillars of service:

  • Sustainability Strategy Development
  • Sustainability Education & Trainings
  • Carbon Footprint Analysis

Underpinned by specialist industry knowledge and expertise, our vCSO offering is uniquely positioned to navigate the global complexity of sustainability, and provides tangible and practical solutions to help organisations deliver on their sustainability opportunities and responsibilities.


“We would like to thank JTC, for working with us to assess and offset our carbon footprint.
They were pro-active in managing this project for us, ascertaining the carbon footprint of our organisation over three offices globally, arranging the audit of the results, and helping us achieve the necessary carbon offset.”

“We were recommended JTC’s ESG team through our industry network whilst selecting an independent ESG readiness review provider. They were the clear stand out from several firms. They were efficient, knowledgeable and quick during the diligence process, and were swift to provide feedback following the review itself. We would not hesitate to recommend their services and plan to use them again for further assessment work later this year.”
CEO, Sandbar Asset Management

“As an industry, we have pledged to take action to mitigate climate change risk through sustainable finance. To provide true leadership we must also work to embed sustainability in our own operations and everyday lives. This means measuring our impact and taking action to reduce or offset our carbon footprint. These small actions add up and we are proud to work with JTC and other innovators across our network to support change towards a more sustainable environment.”
CEO, Irish Funds

“We would like to thank JTC Group, and especially their ESG Services team for working with us to complete the carbon emissions assessment and offset our carbon footprint.  They were pro-active in managing this project for us from inception to carbon neutral certification.  They helped us with the detail questions and follow-up with our suppliers, took us through the carbon footprint calculations for our organisation, arranged the audit of the results and introduced us to carbon offset options.  We would also add that the ESG team exuded a passion for their service, they were keen to help and helped us appreciate a bigger picture even for our own small ESG project.  We would certainly recommend their service.”
COO, Mainspring
