Traction for ESG

Adapt to our rapidly evolving world. Let us cut through the noise and find the enterprise-ready technologies that support your ESG initiatives and deliver real change.

Your Challenge

How to Meet New ESG Regulations and Expectations

Our world is changing. You face new regulations and stakeholder expectations driven by climate change and other factors that fall under the umbrella of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG). To adapt to these changes, you must implement and report on innovation projects that move you towards net zero carbon emissions and other ESG goals.

While new technologies are emerging to help you successfully deliver on these goals, record levels of capital are chasing ESG-related startups and creating a lot of hype and confusion in this space. As a result, the teams tasked with delivering ESG projects are struggling to cut through the noise and find the few emerging solutions that actually drive real change.

Your Solution

We offer dedicated technology scouting services to discover, evaluate, and shortlist enterprise-ready ESG technologies. We follow a proprietary and battle-tested approach to source these solutions. Our ESG research services are performed by domain experts with years of experience helping enterprises accelerate their journeys to net zero and to achieve other ESG goals. 

Plus, all of our ESG services include access to our end-to-end innovation management platform. Together, Traction will help you:
