Identifying, evaluating, and reporting on ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) factors is now vital to help identify both the downside risks and upside opportunities offered by climate change, decarbonisation, and other aspects of transition economies.
However, investors and managers find it a challenge to obtain and interpret ESG data. Social aspects, positive impact, and unlisted investments are especially difficult to obtain meaningful data from in order to measure material risks and opportunities.
ESI Monitor offers a number of solutions to these issues. Building on our existing Environmental Reporting Framework and in response to our research findings, we have developed an ESG reporting and investee performance platform for funds, administrators, managers, and venture capitalists, called ESG Investment Insight.
We use a team of accomplished Subject Matter Experts and specialist technology to proactively acquire data from a range of investee and external systems and sources. We also enable onward flow to key reporting portals, e.g. PRI allowing continued disclosure via preferred channels.
Our platform goes beyond monitoring and reporting to also support investees to improve and generate value from sustainability and efficiency.
We build and deploy improved tools for assessing investee business model sensitivity to ESG factors. These models cover both downside risk and upside opportunity, as well as the full range of environmental and social impact factors, and form a foundation for more sophisticated ESG scenario analysis.
