About Us

Building a better world through better ESG

Our purpose at Speeki

Speeki exists to help companies improve their brand experience, earn a better reputation, and manage risk by enhancing their awareness and management of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG).

We do this by operationalising ESG, building data through a management system and extracting insights from different perspectives to provide predictive analytics on future issues. We then challenge companies to leverage their investment to gain a ESG Rating or ESG ISO Certification across key areas of the ESG sprectrum.

This enables Speeki to offer an innovative solutions that provide true insights as a foundation for transformative ESG, in order to deliver powerful impact to their business and the planet.

Speeki has its own Engage methodology

Our proprietary Engage methodology assists companies in operationalising ESG across 19 defined risk areas, and embedding ESG principles into every facet of their organisation to produce positive measurable outcomes – for the present and the future. We help you transform ESG into a vital part of who you are as a business. Our methodology is a mixture of principles from management systems, best practices, common sense and a whole lot of industry experience.

We turn good intentions into good business

We focus on ESG because we believe the businesses which help create the future are those that will share the benefits of the future. Companies which practise environmental and social responsibility and good governance create sustainable value – for themselves, for their stakeholders, and for the world. Speeki helps businesses to unlock the potential of value creation and growth through ESG.

Value for investors

Better management of ESG risks reduces exposure to potential losses, while studies indicate that companies which embody the ESG values of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) typically outperform the market as a whole, enhancing value for investors and shareholders.

Value for employees

Implementing sound ESG principles in areas such as human capital management, employee health and safety, and diversity and inclusion helps companies reinforce positive workplace experiences, which in turn reduces turnover and strengthens employee retention, engagement and productivity.

Value for customers

Today’s purchasers are ever more closely scrutinising the impact of their buying decisions on society and the environment. Companies which better address their ethical and environmental concerns and better communicate their ESG policies can enrich the customer experience and build stronger brand loyalty.

Value for partners

A company which practises good ESG may still be tarnished by the actions of less conscientious business partners. Applying ESG principles across the entire value chain reduces this risk for all parties, strengthens partnerships, and lessens the danger of supply chain interruptions.

Value for the planet

The scientific consensus is undeniable – the Earth is facing an urgent systemic environmental crisis, with direct and indirect impacts on every business. Companies which fail to play their part in solving this problem – by reducing carbon emissions, minimising waste, transitioning to clean energy and using resources more efficiently – will face increasing restrictions, and may lose their social licence to operate.

Living Speeki’s values

We firmly believe that companies with good ESG – companies that truly practice transparency and honest reporting, integrity, diversity and inclusiveness, environmental responsibility – not only deliver sustained value, but contribute to building a better world. At Speeki, we seek to exemplify these values ourselves in our own operations and corporate culture.

Continual customer-focused improvement

At the core of Speeki’s development strategy is a clear focus on our customers and their stakeholders. We put them at the heart of every decision we make about running our business and shaping it for the future.

To add value for them, we continually diversify our product suite by audience type to add resolution to our analytics. We also continue product innovation to sharpen the data and analytics we generate to better meet their business needs.

Finally, to ensure that our product is available across all our customers’ platforms, we are constantly looking for ways to partner and integrate with the best.

Each of these components is complementary, with benefits in one which reinforce progress across others. This provides customers with an improved experience and faster capabilities.
