Data instead of words.

Sustainability is on everyone’s lips – unfortunately also in many hypocritical ones. Greenwashing, i.e. companies’ efforts to publicly present themselves as more environmentally friendly than they are, is something we find repugnant.

That is why we not only thoroughly document our customers’ sustainability efforts, but also provide an insight into our methodology. Please take this as an invitation to scrutinize us extremely critically. You can find out more in this scientific article, which we wrote together with Prof. Manfred Bergmann from the University of Basel.

We use this data:

esg2go is simple, but not minimalist. Reliable results require reliable data entry, Here is some of the data we need:

  • Information from financial accounting
  • Details from the electricity bill
  • The composition of your staff
  • The status of the development of your regulations and any certificates

How complicated is it for you to enter the data?

It’s like doing your tax return: the first time you do it, it’s a bit time-consuming and you have to collect the data from everywhere. After that it gets easier and easier. And when it comes to sustainability, it is also the case that those who have been dealing with the topic for a long time have it easier.

That’s why we offer you the Professional version, where you can get help from one of our professionals – at a fair price.

What are we calculating?

Each of your entries is evaluated in the form of scores. 100 is the maximum, 0 the minimum, 60 the benchmark.

Our tool automatically calculates so-called KPIs (key performance indicators) from all your values. Depending on the sector and company size, you will then receive different key area scores:

  • Two for the environment (Environment, the E in ESG)
  • Five for the area of society (Social, the S in ESG)
  • Three for the area of corporate governance (governance, you guessed it: the G)

Now we determine your “footprint“, the total load and the “handprint”, your active contribution in the above key areas. Your overall score can then be calculated from this.

Scoring Process esg2go

What does a result look like?

They receive a clear, fair, sector- and size-related rating across all three ESG dimensions. This can be transferred semi-automatically to other reports.

What is a good score?

In terms of grades, 60 would be a 4 according to the Swiss grading system. 70 a 5 and 80 a 6.
