Broadridge introduces ESG Analyzer
To help companies improve their ESG strategy and practices, Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:BR) is introducing ESG Analyzer, a new web based ESG disclosure and data analytics benchmarking tool that delivers timely, high-quality, cost-effective, transparent data and insights.
“This is the perfect tool for management to understand their strengths and weaknesses on ESG issues, enabling them to see how they compare to peers and create a plan to improve their performance and disclosures where needed,” said Joseph Vicari, Vice President and Practice Lead, Corporate Issuer at Broadridge.
The ESG Analyzer allows companies to seamlessly view all of their ESG metrics in a single dashboard, compare their data side-by-side with peers companies to better understand how stakeholders are viewing their ESG performance. Easier access and a clear view of this comprehensive data and insights will help companies to better manage an effective and impactful ESG strategy.
