Based on unaudited company self-assessment

This report is based on a company’s calculations of their own ESG impact on whatever measures they select. The original data have not been verified and the results are not audited. The materiality of ESG for the business cannot be assessed on the basis of this data.

ESGgen Scorecard™

We measure ESG impact using a proprietary scorecard of 29 measures developed by Marc Lepere (Founder and Chief ESG Officer) as part of his research at King’s College London. There are 8 environmental, 15 social, and 6 governance measures. The data used to compile the scorecard is verified by Chartered Accountants who have also been certified in ESG.

The ESGgen Scorecard™ was developed in four steps


Fifty measures were selected from the Refinitiv database (of 400+) and mapped to the World Economic Forum Framework (September, 2020).

Each measure was assessed against 6 ESG disclosure properties. Only measures that fulfilled all 6 properties qualified.



The 27 qualifying measures were tailored to SMEs & Startups in workshops and 2 measures were added.

The final selection of 29 measures was cross-checked with EU mandatory disclosure requirements. 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.
