Permutable has today announced the official launch of its ESG database. Featuring 50,000 of the world’s biggest public and private companies, the database which is currently free to search by anyone provides a comprehensive look at commercial activities in every ethical sphere and across every operating function.
Offering one of the most detailed ESG databases available, Permutable’s new launch provides full transparency enabling the screening of companies across 60 different ESG metrics and ESG scores designed to incontestably and objectively measure a company’s ESG performance within key themes including racism, discrimination, air pollution, mineral mining, recycling, slave labour, product liability, ethical supply chain management and many more. The database also include geo location tagging enabling searches by city and country.
Information is gathered by Permutable’s AI engine going back up to 20 years based on news sentiment and reporting in the media, as well as other publicly available sources including company websites, annual reports, corporate social responsibility reports and other publicly available data.
Permutable founder and CEO Wilson Chan said, “This will be one of the most comprehensive and granular lists of activity extracts of company behaviour in the ethical space. Providing real-time tracking of company behaviour in our database will be a vital contribution to the ESG community, enabling the screening.”
