The ESG Investment Check helps corporations and financial institutions to navigate regulatory disclosure requirements and to receive sector-specific advice on best practices. By automating the assessment process, the ESG Investment Check enables businesses to easily conduct a health check and to understand their current ESG risks and opportunities. All assessments are automatically evaluated to provide you with an instant ESG rating based on sector-specific requirements and the answers provided.

Background

With the goal to promote a climate neutral economy and to finance sustainable growth, governments worldwide have started to implement sustainability disclosure obligations for manufacturers of financial products and financial advisers. But the demand for increased transparency into the nature of financial products labelled as “sustainable” is not just a regulatory one. Stakeholders and investors increasingly put pressure on corporations and financial institutions to report on their ESG targets as sustainability risks start playing a greater role in investment decisions. These regulatory requirements as well as the investor driven demand for more transparency poses problems to financial institutions and corporations who need to assess all aspects of the business to determine their ESG risks and opportunities accurately. They therefore require guidance and clear steps to best fulfil their regulatory obligations and accurately respond to investors.

With BRYTER, corporations and financial institutions can easily assess the status quo of their ESG risks against industry standards and regulatory requirements. The interactive tool guides the user through a sector-specific questionnaire and automatically calculates a risk score based on each assessed category. As a result, the user receives a 360° assessment of their ESG risks and opportunities along with practical next steps to increase their rating.
