Empowering ESG leaders through benchmarking analytics and a strategic roadmap
Welcome to ESG Navigator!
ESG Navigator empowers sustainability professionals and their companies to address the world's most pressing challenges - through ESG benchmarking analytics and a strategic roadmap, supported by a peer network and knowledge hub to monitor the rapidly changing landscape.
This is a moment to rethink everything. The coronavirus pandemic accelerated the unstoppable growth of ESG - the defining business issue of the 2020s.
ESG performance is imperative; yet, C-Suite executives need answers:
“Since 2015, over 80 members of The Conference Board ESG Center have actively used and shaped ESG Navigator. We are excited to make this unique and concise platform available to our member companies globally.”
Uwe Schulte, Director, Global Sustainability Centre
“The global membership of The Conference Board - 1,000+ companies worldwide - will benefit from the power and elegant simplicity of the ESG Navigator benchmarking platform.”
Rainer Schultheis, Executive Vice President, International
“ESG Navigator distills 30 years of industry knowledge, interactions with dozens of CEOs, board members, and ESG expertise into an easy-to-use, online assessment tool.”
Paul Washington, Executive Director, ESG Center
"We take so many surveys (e.g., CDP, DJSI, etc.) - and are ranked against our peers, but we rarely gain insights from the results. ESG Navigator allows us to dig into the contributing factors - and see where the opportunities lie."
Michel Washer - Deputy Chief Sustainability Officer - Solvay
"ESG Navigator speaks the language of our C-suite and board; great for engaging senior executives."
Scott Tew - Vice President, Sustainability - Trane Technologies
ESG Navigator is not another one-size-fit-all rating scheme. The Navigator organizes current and emerging ESG topics in one place. It assists practitioners in assessing the relevance of these topics to their business and, with context, examines the organization's maturity in each area and identifies improvement opportunities.
Edan Dionne - Vice President - IBM
"The dialog among our cross-functional team as we completed our self-assessment was an excellent opportunity to align on ESG internally. This is a simple - yet powerful platform that demonstrates the breadth and influence of ESG in defining business strategies."
Skiles Boyd - Vice President - DTE Energy
"It's very advantageous that the data are confidential. We can be candid with our input, since no other company can see our ratings. Those ratings will provide clarity on where we are in our sustainability journey and where we should focus improvements."
Nancy Kralik - Senior Director, Sustainability - Fluor
"We cannot let ESG ratings dictate our ESG strategy; we must first honestly know our material issues, our strengths and vulnerabilities; put actions in place to address those weaknesses - and then toggle to the ESG ratings to see where they can add value."
Scott Tew - Executive Director - Trane Technologies
"Using ESG Navigator, we laid out a roadmap and took it to our Board. (We had previously been using our own scorecard for the annual update.) They were fascinated! This changed our planning process."
Kathy Gerwig - Vice President - Kaiser Permanente [retired]
“Investors increasingly want to know how we plan to grow our business while addressing critical ESG factors. ESG Navigator helps us measure that and provides an informed best-practice roadmap. In this respect, it is the most robust tool we’ve come across.”
Jon Newton - Global Director of Sustainability - Materion
"We like seeing concrete examples of companies that are in Stage 3 or Stage 4 on areas highly relevant to us."
Christine Martin - VP, Public Affairs and Sustainability - PPL Corporation
"External ESG ratings focus predominantly on environmental and social risks - with hardly any focus on governance or strategy. That's where ESG Navigator is especially helpful."
Linda Hilbert - Executive Director - Consumers Energy
“ESG Navigator is much more than a tool. Gib has brought together a diverse group of leading companies to discuss and address the latest sustainability topics companies are wrestling with.”
Dan Fitzgerald - Director, Product Sustainability - Stanley, Black & Decker
"I've always viewed ESG Navigator as a tool for corporate leadership to assess readiness for success in a carbon-constrained world."
Dave Stangis - Chief Sustainability Officer - Campbell Soup [retired]
