Sharing the Science
Dr. Suchi Gopal, CEO, has been an advocate for ESG issues for decades, addressing sustainability problems, running workshops around the world and compiling scientific data. With a growing concern for how people in developed, wealthy nations could accomplish social good, she focused her attention on applying the science to ESG investing. Given the rising risks stemming from climate change, every company should be measuring their exposure and mitigation strategies along with measurement of their GHG Scope 1, 2, and 3. ESGAnalytics. AI spatializes these company risks using big data analytics and scientific models.
“By collaborating with Floodlight, we’ll be able to empower every person to make an informed decision with their dollar. They can put money into something they believe in and are passionate about and still get a return on their investment.”
“Working with Nate and the Floodlight team, it’s obvious we have a shared vision. His rich financial background and passion really move things forward at a rapid pace. Together we can turn the science and analysis into a data platform that will affect companies ESG policies.”
ESG is The Future of Investing
ESG Investing continues to grow. Younger generations are entering the investment world with an eye on the future, and more investors and institutions are becoming aware of greenwashing and seeking out independent sources. Asset managers looking to attract these conscientious investors will need to offer ESG parameters with their investment advice to stay ahead of the curve.
Floodlight CEO, Nate Wyne said: “With investors becoming more wary of businesses sharing their ESG goals rather than what they are actually doing today, there is a real hunger for the actual hard data. Working with Josh and Suchi is a real meeting of the minds.
