Brief description of the data offering

Our ESG news aggregator/ controversies monitoring tool provides comprehensive coverage in over 120 languages, providing a truly global perspective. Our unique categorisation system enables classification of news articles into specific ESG categories such as climate change, bribery & corruption, and more. Through our AI model, we identify potential controversies, categorise articles, tag relevant entities, and perform sentiment analysis. With our multi-tenant platform, clients can monitor companies within portfolios or specific market indices with precision. The platform offers flexible filtering options based on companies, ESG categories, publication dates, and sentiment. Clients can seamlessly integrate our product with their existing platform through APIs. Customised to meet client needs, our ESG controversies product delivers accurate information, empowering data-driven decision-making for driving positive change.

Where and how do you source your data?

We go beyond tracking news, also monitoring controversies related to approximately 2 million global private and public companies. Our global news and controversies monitoring is conducted through extensive web crawling, covering a vast collection of over 236,000 sources. This includes utilising our carefully curated repository of more than 36,000 RSS-type news sources. Additionally, we have established partnerships with over 200,000 trusted third-party news sources. Our sources range from local and international publishers, including industry-specific outlets, NGOs, to industry associations. This comprehensive approach enables us to provide valuable insights to our clients regarding reputational risks and controversies associated with companies and their supply chains across diverse sectors and regions.

What is the cost for your data offering?

Our approach to costing is specifically designed to accommodate the unique needs of each organisation, acknowledging the significant variations in scope. We conduct a thorough evaluation of requirements, objectives, risks, and complexity involved in the project. This enables us to provide a customised costing structure that aligns with the client's expectations and budgetary considerations. Factors considered include company coverage, news data labelling, delivery formats (such as product UI, APIs, webhooks), and any additional specialised services or support required. Through this meticulous evaluation, we offer a cost structure that is both realistic and transparent, instilling confidence in our ability to deliver value while staying within the client's financial parameters. Our aim is to provide cost-effective and accurate news insights for ESG projects.
