Need help improving your rating with an ESG ratings agency?
Many agencies don't even ask you about conducting a rating, they simply scrape information off your website and give you a rating. Of course, if you pay money, you might get a better service. Speeki knows ESG, we know how ratings are built and we know what data you need to make available and how to drive a higher award.
If bots are going to scan the internet and give you a rating automatically, then you need to think how to present your data so the strongest pieces get identified and the less ideal get ignored.
While presentation is one thing, we suspect you might have some gaps to fill in order to address the substantive elements as well. Allow Speeki to help you build some of the key elements of your ESG strategy and address gaps that are reflecting poorly on your scores.
We know ESG and we know how to assess programmes. This is not an automated solution.
Our scorecards are designed to reflect conformity with published frameworks, ISO standards and against international best practice on the relevant topic being considered.
Our scorecards, the main output of our assessments, provide guidance, direction and help to build a better system of managing risk. They are directly related to improvement of your programmes.
Jenna Kim has been involved in compliance, governance and ESG for over 15 years. Entering the field through a marketing background, Jenna understands how to draw value out of ESG programmes and use the Speeki Assessments and scorecard as a step in communicating that value.
Our focus is to be your partner. Some expert support and guidance on how to make the assessment process a competitive advantage to your business. Our focus is your success. We will guide you through improving the maturity of your programmes and how to move up to the next level.
There is a strong E in ESG. The sooner the companies start to tackle it and improve, then the higher likelihood that we can address some of the larger climate and sustainability issues. Knowing your scorecard won't fix the planet, but a good dose of competition to drive the indicator can never hurt.
If you decide to get a rating from a separate ratings' agency, there is no doubt that a focus on ratings will help you improve and strive to achieve higher levels of success. Investors look at the ratings and they are (whether we like it or not) being built and pushed into the hands of customers and investors regularly through various platforms.
While the ratings agencies have their own approach and methodology (and we may not always agree with them), it exists and is the industry standard at least as it comes to financial research. A little bit of proactive work can make that rating substantially better. Play the game, you rarely have anything to lose but a lot to gain.
Everyone in business knows that compensation drives behaviour and that goals drive compensation. The best thing you can do is set some company goals to drive up your scorecard and improve ratings across key areas and push the teams to implement new measures that impact levels of growth and improvement.
Some of the best advice you might receive is through the Speeki Assessments. At least that is what we like to do with Speeki clients where we can help them achieve higher levels of maturity and learn through the process without having to pay larger and larger consulting fees.
