Brief description of the data offering

SIGWATCH provides a unique source of early warning intelligence on critical ESG and material risks for companies and sectors. Its quantitative and qualitative data captures the campaigning impact of several thousand of the world’s most influential NGOs and social impact groups on every industry sector, and over 19,000 corporates by name across all significant economies, since 2011. SIGWATCH data is used by multiple financial institutional investors and ESG aggregators as well as by dozens of leading global manufacturers and trading companies.

Where and how do you source your data?

For accuracy and timeliness, SIGWATCH data is derived almost entirely from primary sources, principally open-source campaigning messaging, publications and social media activity of NGOs and social impact groups in every major language.

What is the cost for your data offering?

From USD$30k per year, including daily live updates plus historic data back to 2011, delivered via FTP or API.
