“Materiality automation accelerates our clients through prioritization of ESG topics, so they can quickly use their information to align leadership and resources around key topics and build an ESG improvement plan.” – Andries Verschelden, CEO and Co-Founder, Good.Lab

Good.Lab, an environmental, social and governance (ESG) data software company, has announced the launch of a materiality assessment tool as part of its ESG performance software.

By automating this process, our clients can quickly identify priority ESG topics, align leadership and resources around those topics, and develop an action plan for improvement. Rather than investing time in the exercise, they can use the insights to focus on creating value. »
