Where and how do you source your data?
The proprietary dataset is generated by Metric’s measurement functionality. Rather than an opaque compilation of purchased datasets, Metric provides ground truth information shared directly by private companies. Companies opt into sharing their identifiable datasets with current and prospective investors. Investors can also purchase aggregated and anonymized datasets built from corporate ESG and impact measurement.

What is the cost for your data offering?
Metric sells annual subscriptions to the platform for private companies and investors. Companies can measure their carbon emissions and corporate diversity for free, adding on subscription modules for ESG and impact performance measurement. Investors can purchase data subscriptions to access, analyze, and download identifiable datasets for their own portfolio companies or aggregated and anonymized datasets for broader private company data.
