Opportunity

ESG data and analytics is a fast-growing market


Global spend on ESG data and analytics is set to increase from $2.2 billion in 2020 to $5 billion in  2025


There are currently over 4,600 investor signatories to the Principles for Responsible Investment that  have stated the value of ESG impact on the performance of their investment portfolios and are  committed to using ESG metrics in their analysis and decision-making


The number of signatories is increasing 17% annually

 

Richmond Global Sciences

Solution Strategy

RGS is providing actionable signals for investors and companies, by measuring real impacts that  matter the most and connecting these impacts to accounting statements through monetization


Similar to the development of financial accounting as the infrastructure and the necessary condition for large-scale capital markets, the development of impact-weighted financial accounts  is a much-needed infrastructure for the development of capital markets that are driven by sustainability considerations


RGS is the first to move beyond traditional ESG metrics by quantifying the impacts of the products and services that companies produce, the blind spot of ESG investing
