“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.”

ESG Navigator Membership Criteria

The ESG Navigator website includes a growing body of information that may be of interest to many in the ESG world – including not only corporate leaders but also students, entrepreneurs, service providers, etc.

The ESG Navigator platform is designed for corporations (typically mid-cap and large-cap) to assess their status on ESG and to plan strategically for how to capture value from both reducing ESG risks and seizing ESG-related opportunities. Access to the ESG Navigator benchmarking platform (via assigned log-in credentials) is limited to individuals meeting these criteria:

  • Must work for a for-profit corporation
  • Corporation must be at least $100MM in annual sales or 100 employees
  • Cannot be a professional service firm (as the platform is not designed for this type of firm)


  • Please let us know how what your interest is in ESG.
  • We will respond with how ESG Navigator can help.


Companies have one of three options for joining ESG Navigator:

  • Option A (Free): Unlimited use of the platform for your own company ratings; however, access to analytics is limited. For example, you cannot compare your company to others in your industry sector or sub-sector.
  • Option B (Basic): Annual fee for all of the analytics that were in place as of January 1, 2020.
  • Option C (Advanced): Annual fee includes many extra tools and features requested by the most active ESG Navigator users.

Quarterly Strategy Discussion Forum

The monthly webinars were great before Covid-19, and since the pandemic began, participation in the webinars has grown.

While the webinars provide an excellent baseline of information and learning for both new and seasoned ESG Navigator users, some of the more experienced and advanced ESG Navigator members wanted a bit more.

Option C (Advanced) Members of the ESG Navigator Collaborative specifically asked for an opportunity, in a small, confidential setting, to engage in a “higher-level, strategic discussion” about ESG issues and where ESG Navigator can help. In response, we created the Quarterly Strategy Discussion Forum.
