ESG Insights is a new tool that fills the SME data blind spot for the UK’s 5m SMEs, both limited and unlimited. It gives you a far clearer and more accurate view of the emissions and ESG risks hidden in a portfolio. ESG Insight allows lenders to take a big step towards including climate change and broader ESG matters in the heart of decision-making.
