Where do you fit in?

ESGSignals® analyzes geolocation based data from ~50 sources, including aerial and satellite imagery, weather, water, land cover, wind-speed, and methane flaring data sets to create the most comprehensive environmental view of an Asset.

The platform provides comparable environmental data across companies and sectors which analysts can use to create independent, verifiable, and objective indices and benchmarks.

  • Investors are moving away from self-reported Corporate Sustainability Assessments (CSA) and are demanding standardized, comparable, asset-level ESG metrics from corporates. The metrics that ESGSignals® provides allow for improved best-in-class rankings based on ESG metrics and integrating the data within independent sets.
  • ESGSignals® provides you access to the same professional underlying asset-level data and analysis upon which index providers and ratings agencies are building their ESG models improving corporates’ chances to identify risks and opportunities.
  • Asset managers can use the environmental asset-level metrics to measure ROI, reduce headline risk, and create an impact
  • SFDR Regulations: asset managers can use the independent, real-time, scalable ESG metrics to disclose the ESG performance of the companies they have allocated assets in
  • Impact investors can use ESGSignals to receive objective information on the past, present, and future exposure to environmental risks for areas such as water stress, land use/land cover, biodiversity, etc
  • The lack of complete company disclosures, consistent reporting, and standardized metrics has made it hard for rating providers to incorporate effectively and correctly ESG data into their existing rating systems. ESGSignals® helps overcome that by providing independent, verifiable, and near real-time asset-level data which reveals otherwise overlooked metrics on a scalable level.
  • Metrics that are specifically designed for enhanced passive indices which are a departure from market cap weighted indices with risk based ESG optimization in mind.
  • Metrics that are updated on a monthly/semi-annual/annual basis can also be incorporated during periods of rebalancing, enhancing index returns and selection criteria.
