What We Offer

Being a bespoke ESG provider, we provide ESG as a service through our primary and secondary research services. Our ESG services in this business division assesses ESG metrics, trends, news and controversies. Our scalable strategy makes us a ‘brand behind the brand’ for rating agencies and ESG data platforms, enabling us to deal with large-scale and dynamic data efficiently. We get our data through in-depth analysis of company-level self-disclosed data, publicly accessible data, data from third-party sources and data from contentious research. While ensuring data integrity using data quality criteria, we clean and validate data using data triangulation and the evaluation and opinions of ESG experts. Through peer benchmarking and gap assessment, we also produce profound insights. 

  • We distinguish ourselves by having an in-depth knowledge of regional terminologies, exchanges, reputable data sources, and the numerous types of reports filed by companies. With in-house proficiency in 16+ worldwide languages spanning across established and emerging economies and a profound contextual grasp of larger ESG goals, roadmaps, gaps and the way ahead, we have a robust understanding of the demands relevant to each market. 
  • We use technology to trace more than 25,000 sources globally through our source-tracking system. Once a source of pertinent data is updated, it instantly downloads it and informs analysts or downstream systems for processing.  
  • We use our IPA (Intelligent Process Automation) technology to separate downloaded data into identifiable and non-identifying documents automatically. We automatically extract data from recognised sources based on contextual and decision-based business criteria. Our sophisticated data identification and extraction processes guarantee high accuracy by having analysts verify the obtained data.
  • Trained NLP (Natural Language Processing) engines assist in categorising material into ESG focus areas to generate insights. The NLP engines are adjusted according to client engagement demands to achieve quick response times.  

SGA's ESG consulting services aim to offer a one-stop solution for integrating sustainability into business operations, from screening and performing due diligence on portfolio companies for investors. We also enhance the ESG performance of corporates by identifying key areas and making suggestions for improvement. 

By evaluating ESG performance, bridging ESG gaps, monitoring y-o-y progress and fostering resilience to maintain business continuity, we assist businesses in improving the quality and transparency of their ESG disclosures through ESG reporting. We help companies calculate their carbon footprints and provide a means of achieving environmental objectives through our GHG accounting services. 

To assist organisations in becoming industry leaders and improve their sustainability performance and ESG ratings, we generate ESG data collection templates, develop policies and procedures and provide progressive sustainability goals and targets and execution roadmaps. We can meet our clients' various ESG requirements with our expertise in several ESG frameworks, including GRI, SASB, UN SDGs, CDP, TCFD and others. We also have a thorough understanding of global regulation and the evolving ESG market dynamics, which enables us to cater to the unique ESG requirements of our clients. 

  • To identify material topics, extensive study is done on the industry, geographical considerations, peers, standards, frameworks, relevance to stakeholders and impact on business. Careful engagement with key internal and external stakeholders can also be conducted to determine and prioritise the business's primary focus areas. 
  • Through gap assessment, peer benchmarking and as-is evaluation, the maturity of the business in its ESG journey is determined. To determine their current ESG performance, corporates' existing policies, initiatives and data availability for necessary ESG KPIs (Key performance indicators) are reviewed. It is then compared to current standards, regulations and peers to identify gaps and evaluate the company's market performance. Our specialised ESG service solutions include creating standard data gathering templates and carrying out Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG accounting. 
  • To enhance ESG performance, we provide progressive ESG strategy and implementation roadmaps that include defining objectives and targets, implementing activities and developing tools to track ongoing ESG progress.
