What You Receive:

The main focus of Option C is to help companies focus on: “How do we drive performance improvement?”

  • All the benefits of Option B… plus:
  • Driving Performance Improvement:  Dig into priority areas (KSIs) you marked as “Highly Important / Relevant to my Company. Engage with peers to address:
    • Are we having the right strategic conversations about ESG? Do we have the right balance between:
      • Playing Defense (risk management)
      • Playing Offense (driving tomorrow’s growth)
    • Where do we go from here? Engage with peer companies that have been active users of the Scorecard; learn from each other.
  • Compare and Contrast ESG Ratings and Frameworks: See how your company scores compare (via your “Rainbow Charts for Governance, Strategy, Environment, Social) with:14+ESG ratings.
    • Compare and Contrast: Analyze and compare the scope of 14+ ESG ratings and frameworks (vs. ESG Navigator criteria). (This led to creation of a “bubble chart” comparing the 14+ ESG ratings.)
    • Targeting ESG Rating Improvement: Can we use ESG Navigator to target ESG rating improvements? How well do we balance (internal) performance improvement vs. striving for (external) recognition (via ESG ratings)?
    • ESG Performance Maps: this new feature grew out of requests by Option C participants.
  • Quarterly Strategic Discussion Forum – During 2019, we added – at the request of our Option C members – a quarterly web call to discuss strategic issues.
    • Who Can Participate? Only available to Option C (Advanced) participants.
    • What about Monthly Webinars? The monthly webinars continue – open to interested participants and focused on more practical information and updates.
    • Target Audience? These quarterly forum is aimed at CSOs and VP-level executives.

Requirements (same for all Join options): must be a for-profit company – realizing ESG Navigator is designed primarily for large and mid-size companies (e.g., revenue of $100MM+ or 100+ employees). ESG Navigator is not available (or intended for) professional service firms (consultancies, law firms, etc.).
