Benefits and Value


“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


ESG Navigator provides benchmarking insights that an internal framework simply cannot give.”

Below are additional comments shared during our 2019 and 2020 monthly webinars.

Measures Sustainability Integration 

  • “Every company I know has an overarching goal of integrating sustainability into the core of business — governance, strategy, etc.”
  • “This tool actually measures sustainability integration.”

Saves Money

  • “Instead of paying ‘a million dollars’ to BCG to assess sustainability governance and strategy, we can just use this.”
  • “I was going to hire a MBA summer intern to analyze TCFD – but you are already doing it.”

Aligned with Investor Interests (and TCFD)

  • “This Scorecard aligns perfectly with TCFD – with the dominant focus on Governance, Strategy, Risk, Metrics.” 
  • “Investors increasingly want to know how we plan to grow our business revenue from ESG; this tool is the most robust out there.”

By Industry – For Industry

  • “We can be brutally candid in our scoring, knowing the data is completely confidential. No other company will see our ratings.”
  • “This Scorecard is an organized compendium of world-class practices globally.”
  • “We like seeing concrete examples of companies that are in Stage 3 or Stage 4 on areas highly relevant to us.”

Board-Friendly

  • “This Scorecard speaks the language of our C-suite and board.”
  • “External ESG ratings focus predominantly on environmental and social risks – with hardly any focus on governance or strategy.”
  • “We showed our CEO the rainbow charts and he loved them.” 

Internal Alignment – Gets Us On the Same Page

  • Say the words sustainability or ESG to different people in our company and they all have a slightly different view.”
  • “Once we went through the Scorecard as a group, we all had a shared view.”
