Covalence helps investors integrate ESG factors while controlling greenwashing with its multi-source, AI-powered scoring system and data feeds.
To assess the contribution of companies to sustainable development, we consider their practices as well as their impact on society and the environment.
The Covalence approach is based on a diversity of sources of information and relies on web monitoring and artificial intelligence together with human analysis. We compare ESG data publicly reported by companies (disclosure) to online narrative content reflecting the perceptions of stakeholders such as the media and NGOs (reputation). This approach allows users to track inconsistencies, monitor changes and benefit from timely alternative data. The information is delivered in an actionable format to support ESG risk exposure mitigation and long term value creation.
Our dynamic, granular, news-based data informs on ESG practices (GRI-inspired criteria), impact (SDGs) and materiality (SASB), providing signals relevant to factor investing. It also supports thematic investment strategies such as the Cadmos Peace Investment Fund.
