  • ESG Impact quantifies the actual social and environmental impact of organizations on society. It is meant to be used as a complementary score alternative to ESG scores which focus on assessing how sustainability metrics might have an impact on financial risk. Organizations with low ESG risk do not necessarily have a good sustainability / social impact score. ESG Impact allows investors to understand the sustainability of their investment portfolios.
  • The ESG Impact Methodology was developed leveraging years of research by experts in sustainability / social and environmental impact. This methodology is purely quantitative and systematically applied to organizations across all industries using technology and algorithms. High quality data is used to calculate the ESG Impact scores (the output of applying machine learning algorithms and estimation models to structured and unstructured data to improve reliability and ensure the largest coverage).
  • Leverage Clarity AI’s technology platform to better manage portfolios for impact. Using big data and machine learning, it offers a wide range of societal and environmental impact scores and modules such as ESG Impact, UN SDGs, Climate module, and Impact of products and services
