Empowering SMEs to build a more valuable business and a better world
Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) reporting is becoming an indispensable tool for governments and sustainability-minded investors. Its measures don’t simply benefit society and the planet, they also unlock value hidden in your business.
From startups to global enterprises, audited ESG reporting is a competitive advantage, a requirement for capital, and a valuable tool in building a more valuable, more sustainable business.
Most solutions are designed for large corporates. Our full-service, cloud based solution is designed especially for SMEsTake advantage of our new subscriber offer
It’s as easy as giving us permission to get data that’s already in your business. Then our automated, high security, cloud based data collection does the rest for you. Use the simple drag-and-drop feature or our direct integration with your existing Accounting, HR and CRM systems.
As with inaccurate financials, misrepresenting internal ESG accounting can be a detriment to sustained future growth. Our Chartered ESG Auditors check all the data and verify it’s real - just like they do with your financial accounts. Then, they assess your ESG impact using a unique scorecard of 29 measures, and produce an ESGgen Audit Report™.
Chose the solution that's right for you:
Self-Assessment: Free use of our Scorecard, allowing you to calculate your ESG impact.
Assessment: Give us the data we need to do the calculations for you and to show you how to unlock the value of ESG in your business.
Audit: Just upload some documentation that's already at hand and we'll take it from there. You'll be equipped with the best possible answer for stakeholders and an Audit Mark to use in your marketing materials (proving you're not greenwashing).
Audit and Value & Risk: Nothing for you to do. In addition to your Audit Report you'll get a Value & Risk Report showing you (and investors) how you can use ESG to create value and manage risk in your business.

We use the ESGgen Scorecard™ to assess our subscriber’s ESG impact. It’s a proprietary set of 29 standardised (but evolving) measures. There are 8 environmental, 15 social, and 6 governance measures. The data is Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and scope 3 ‘compliance ready’. When company-specific or industry-specific data are required, we include additional measures in the Scorecard.
Each measure in our scorecard conforms to the 6 ESG disclosure properties developed by Marc Lepere (Founder and Chief ESG Officer) as part of his research at King’s College London. The methodology was tested and refined with the University of Edinburgh and Redrice Ventures, a private equity venture capital company working with the British Business Bank.
No greenwashing here
As demand for ESG from both individuals and governments skyrockets, so too has the rise of greenwashing. The planet and peoples’ lives are too important to play games. Just like your financials, ESG accounts and the decisions you make are only as good as the data they are based on. Give your employees, investors and customers confidence in your ESG impact by having it independently audited each year.
Your customers, investors and partners care about your ESG impact
As the world faces up to the climate crisis, ESG reporting becomes a necessity for attracting customers, raising capital and participating in global supply chains. Be prepared to quickly respond to ESG requests from investors and partners with accurate and audited reports.Future proof your business today
