ESG data providers are often criticised for being ‘backward-looking’ - even ‘controversies’ assessments are written after the event.
Our proprietary Real-Time ESG tracker will give you an immediate email alert when ESG sentiment on a company is deteriorating or improving - you can even drill down to see what are the top articles and tweets causing the controversy.
We aim to alert you early, and give you the data you need to engage your portfolio company - or even to trade.
