Brief description of the data offering
GIST believes businesses need to measure and respond to today’s corporate externalities before they become tomorrow’s risks and the day after’s costs. Our scientific approach draws upon proven economic and sustainability research to provide actionable insights for corporates and investors. We provide raw data and location-specific impact valuations in dollars.
GIST uses a Drivers>Outcomes>Impacts framework. Key drivers lead to core outcomes, which lead to measurable impact on society. We analyse 17 KPIs segmented by business activity and materiality of impact.
GIST’s analysis allows monitoring across the four capitals, the Value Balancing Alliance Methodology and UN SDGs, as well as peer benchmarking. We help those committed to sustainability make informed decisions about material risks and opportunities and invest in appropriate solutions.

Where and how do you source your data?
The GIST methodology adds a new dimension to performance evaluation by integrating core non-financial business outputs into a company’s traditional financial reporting. Our framework was designed as a micro-economic parallel to the macro-economic ‘inclusive wealth’ approach of the United Nations. GIST adds value to existing ESG rating systems by economically sizing corporate impacts.
GIST crawls company data from sustainability and other public reports. We contextualise the data using globally-renowned databases from the likes of NASA, the EU, WHO and ILO, deriving localised information such as wind speed and direction, population density and labour productivity. From these we derive drivers and outcomes, while for impact we incorporate peer-reviewed scientific research papers on the costs and benefits of externalities on human well-being.
