Brief description of the data offering

ESGL Lead enables any business to evaluate their current ESG position against their industry specific best practices and access relevant improvement opportunities, without the need for consultants or recruiting an ESG specialist.

ESG Lead continually updates against the latest regulatory and best practice advice, with automated alerts to changes relevant to your industry sector.

ESG Lead produces real-time performance data, to include in management reports and informed decision-making. Set targets, generate comparison scorecards and share outputs with stakeholders.

Verification of evaluation and improvement plans by certified ESG auditors/verifiers, to ensure integrity and transparency when sharing with clients, prospective clients and stakeholders.

ESG Lead helps mitigate ESG risks, such as reputational threat and/or litigation due to inaccurate reporting of ESG credentials.

Where and how do you source your data?

All the response data comes from the user, primary source data.  

The best practices in the ESG Lead tool are amalgamated from global and regional frameworks and standards. These are then industry aligned, meaning users are evaluating themselves against those best practices that are relevant to their business sector. Ecodesk monitor the regulatory landscape so SMEs don’t need to. ESG Lead makes continuous measurement and performance improvement easy whilst helping SMEs to put together credible plans which can be reported to customers, employees and regulators. ESG Lead helps companies keep pace with shifting stakeholder expectations via updated best practices which reflect the rapidly changing ESG domain.

What is the cost for your data offering?

Access to ESG Lead is free for all users, which includes access to the ESG best practice content and to do an evaluation of your business against industry specific best practices. The annual fee only applies at the point where you want to share your scorecard and improvement plans with clients. The annual subscription is £1,000 (per site, with multi-site discount available).
