The majority of ESG data offered by providers is either:
Raw ESG data: ESG information sourced directly from sustainability reports that have not been analyzed
ESG disclosure scores: an assessment or proxy for the level and quality of disclosure, rather than the real performance on ESG issues
ESG ratings: an evaluation of ESG performance benchmarked to the performance of industry/sector peers, based mostly on input metrics
RGS is offering information that is based on outcome metrics and expressed in financial terms.
The most significant way an organization impacts the world is through the sale of its products and services. These impacts are most likely to be financially material, which is why product impacts are the source of our focus. RGS is the first-ever provider of granular information on downstream-product impacts that accurately capture environmental and social costs and benefits.
