  • Social Data
  • Governance Data
ESG measures might be quantitative or qualitative. 
Quantitative metrics are numerical statistics that may be measured and compared directly.
Rising demand from investors and companies drives the Global ESG reporting market

ESG indicators are increasingly being used by investors to evaluate companies they wish to acquire or invest in.  Investors utilize ESG reports to select assets, align investments, and avoid firms that may create environmental harm, corruption, or social mistakes.

“……Nowadays, investors while evaluating companies look for ESG disclosures to steer their investment decision-making. Investors perceive that organizations that perform well on ESG metrics are relatively less risky, better positioned for long-term growth, and better equipped for uncertainty……”
