The Investment

As ESG-first cultures move from a "nice to have" to a "must have," corporations are increasingly seeking for ways to intelligently collect, drive insight, act, and report on their ESG data.

With growing pressure from investors, regulators, consumers and employees to act on ESG data, corporate executives across industries have made the mission of improving their practices one of their top priorities.

However, tracking ESG metrics and content is currently a painful and confusing process involving heterogeneous standards, burdensome internal challenges and countless manual tasks. Novisto is an end-to-end software solution that automates data collection, powers benchmarking, centralizes record-keeping and provides AI-driven strategic and operational insights to large enterprises. We see a promising future for Novisto and their vision that supports a brighter, greener future for all.
