WTW unveils its new ESG Clarified platform

WTW has launched a new analytics platform designed to generate insights into companies’ climate, sustainability and wider ESG risks. ESG Clarified draws on multiple data sources to create a comprehensive picture of exposures, in real time.

Ben Fidlow, global head of core analytics at WTW, commented: "ESG Clarified joins several solutions our clients are already using to address ESG risks, including Climate Diagnostic, Risk Tolerance Clarified and D&O Quantified. We are excited to introduce ESG Clarified as an addition to our market-leading analytical solutions suite and we’ve made them all accessible through our Risk Intelligence Quantified (RiskIQ) platform.”

The new platform also allows users to benchmark their ESG risks against those of the peers, while also generating reports about their related exposures that can be instrumental in discussions with insurance carriers as they build risk programmes.

Jonathan Weatherly, ESG global products leader at WTW, added: “Our clients have been asking for a comprehensive analytical platform that uses a broad range of quality data sources to understand ESG risks, prompting WTW to create ESG Clarified. It offers our clients the ability to benchmark their ESG risks for particular businesses and create unique reports for key audiences.”
