What data do you provide?
SPOTT assesses and scores tropical forestry, palm oil and natural rubber companies annually against well over 100 sector-specific E, S and G indicators to benchmark their progress over time. Indicators are separated into three categories:
- Organisation disclosures regarding the company’s operations, assets and management structure).
- Policy disclosures regarding the policies, commitments and processes the company has to guide its operations and practices on the ground).
- Practice disclosures regarding activities the company undertakes, in order to actively progress towards its targets and implement its policies and commitments on the ground).
The detailed scoring criteria are publicly available, and overall results as well as full datasets containing scoring details at indicator level are available to download for free from the platform.
Where and how do you source your data?
SPOTT 230 assesses commodity producers, processors and traders on their public disclosure regarding their organisation, policies, and practices related to environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
Companies do not report directly to ZSL to inform their SPOTT assessments. Instead, ZSL conducts thorough reviews of their publicly available reports and publications, before contacting each company with its draft assessment. This engagement process means that companies have the opportunity to respond to ZSL, make further public disclosures, and provide feedback ahead of the final review and publication on SPOTT.
Who are the data users?
