ESGSignals® as a SAAS through Google Cloud

ESGSignals® is the industry-leading geospatial analytics platform for providing asset-level, objective, verifiable, and comparable environmental and climate physical risk data and metrics for companies. The physical assets are mapped back to ownership, asset type, sector, country, etc., making it possible to conduct:

Frame 182

Risk profile comparisons for
assets with similar attributes

Frame 183

Company, industry, sector-level
risk evaluation

Frame 184

Baselining and benchmarking

Frame 185

Portfolio screening, monitoring
and engagement & more

While the standard coverage for ESGSignals® includes many global public companies with a focus on the most polluting and physical asset-intensive sectors (Energy, Utilities, Materials, Industrials, etc.), we also allow you to ‘Bring Your Own Assets’ (BYOA) data in the pre-defined format (meaning Latitude and Longitude info of assets at a minimum) and extract a similar dataset for any public or private company that is not under our current coverage.
