Our mission is to democratize the world's ESG data so companies, investors, employees, and customers have what they need to drive progress towards climate change and social inequality.
Sustainable was founded in 2021, as the COVID pandemic increased pressure on companies to take a more active stance on issues like climate change, social unrest, and public health. We learned that investors, employees, and customers all wanted to support companies with good ESG performance, but lacked quality data to support their decision making. After some analysis, it became clear that an overwhelming amount of companies were not producing any meaningful ESG data. Why? Because it is really hard.
To get the data in the hands of the people who can drive change, we knew more high quality data had to be widely available. That is why we decided to build software to help companies run effective ESG programs. Our thinking is if we make it easy and beneficial to disclose, more companies will do it. And if more companies do it, the public will have what it needs to make better decisions. And a more informed public will lead to capital, talent, and resources flowing to the right organizations.
But this is just the beginning. Our mission is to democratize the world’s ESG data so companies, investors, employees, and customers have what they need to drive progress towards climate change and social inequality. And we have a lot more to build.
