Integrated daily controversy monitoring

SDG Alignment Screening
The UN SDGs provide a blueprint for a better and more sustainable future for all. But how do your investments measure up to its targets?

We can provide the bigger picture. Our dual lens approach gives you a clear perspective on a company’s commitments across the full range of 17 Goals; from eradicating poverty and hunger, to tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
Our Approach

A Net Contribution Lens analyses the positive and negative contribution that a company makes to the SDGs based on its products and services with a five-point scale (Highly negative, Negative, Neutral, Positive, Highly positive)

A Net Behaviour Lens uses a similar scale (Highly adverse, Adverse, Marginal, Favourable, Highly favourable) to assess a company’s disclosures
