The world’s first open-access impact data platform
Driving transparency lies at the core of Upright’s innovation – it’s even in their name. While there are several providers for ESG reporting or carbon accounting, Upright is the first open-access platform to compare companies across industries not only based on their financial results but also their overall net impact. UP clusters the results into four categories: Society, Knowledge, Health and Environment. At Planet A we believe that democratizing impact data is key to driving change – and why we believe in the teams’ mission and UP’s potential, systemic impact. Last year their first product release already included publicly available net impact data for 700 companies, including the 500 largest companies globally.
Leaving ESG behind
ESG is increasingly being recognized for what it is: it reflects risks to companies and shareholders, but not necessarily to people and the planet. Upright eliminates exactly this bottleneck: the model’s top-down approach significantly improves the depth of most Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) measurements, such as ESG, SFDR, and others, that are currently biased by companies’ self-reporting and spending power.
