Brief description of the data offering
ESGAnalytics.AI is a major US research university’s R&D spinoff. The team has extensive domain expertise in climate, data sciences, advanced statistics and AI. ESGAnalytics.AI uses geospatial data (multiple satellites), and creates, scientifically valid data sets on thematic issues around ESG concerns for locations (such as countries, zip codes), sectors (such as oil & gas), and businesses (such as Apple/AAPL). These include Environmental (ex. hazardous wastes) to assess impact and risks, Social (ex. gender equity) to assess human resource management/impact, and Governance (ex: tax impact) to assess management outlooks.
Data is provided through APIs, SaaS platform, flat files, as well as other data feeds. ESGAnalytics.AI Platform offers quantitative data (risk rankings and analytics) and deeper reporting around biodiversity, blue ocean economy, food security and energy investment risk. Our Data Feeds are customized exports of our ESG data at multiple scales.
