ESG Top 100 Companies - Insights & Targets - Astrato GoodViz Challenge
What does it take to join the ESG Top 100 Companies list, an esteemed group of companies that demonstrate both their business acumen and commitment to sustainable practices. Through the power of data visualization and Astrato, I will be attempting to answer this question today!
First, I wanted to explore the data itself, looking at which countries dominated the list. Here, the United States and China made up the most number. Across some key environmental scoring metrics, such as GHG emissions, reporting, and climate strategy scores, we can see that France has the highest averages in the top 5 countries list.
Zooming into the industry level, the Biotech industry had the highest average environmental reporting score, and Walmart is a market leader in terms of its GHG emission score given company size.
Now that we have an understanding of the breakout of countries, metrics, and industries, let's create an ESG target dashboard for our potential company to know where it should focus its efforts.
As you can see above, there is a clear threshold that must be met to enter the ESG Top 100 list. Climate Strategy is key, followed by Environmental Reporting and E-Pillar score. On the right are the leaders, and they stack up in terms of reporting.
