"I've always viewed ESG Navigator as a powerful platform for corporate leadership to assess readiness for success in a carbon-constrained world."

Dave Stangis, Partner and CSO | Apollo Global Management

“It’s a simple tool using clear language to help you understand what good, better, and best look like – and what’s expected of you as you progress.”

Scott Tew, VP Sustainability | Trane Technologies

"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 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
