SGS : New Partnership with Diginex to Provide ESG Data Assurance Services

01/24/2022 | 03:54am EDT
SGS and impact technology company Diginex have launched a strategic alliance to provide Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) data assurance services.

This partnership supports our strategy to become the most digital company in the TIC industry and to support our customers on their sustainability journeys.

The announcement comes as ESG regulation continues to tighten around the world, from the EU's Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation to the US looking to follow suit with the Securities and Exchange Commission confirming an increased focus on climate-related risks.

Now, sustainability reports created using the Diginex platform can be assured by our Sustainability Report Assurance (SRA) services. This external assurance helps customers to meet demands for transparency. This provision has a direct knock-on effect for clients as stakeholders, including banks and investors, will now have unprecedented insight into the quality of their portfolio's independently verified ESG data.

Recognizing that ESG impacts all stakeholders in the corporate and investment sectors, our ESG services aim to meet the needs of a variety of organizations, whatever their maturity level, industry focus or requirements. Our ESG Assurance Solutions provide a unique set of competencies that help clients achieve specific targets and goals.

Since 2017, Diginex has been on a mission to introduce products that enable companies of all sizes to collect, collate and share their sustainability credentials, both easily and transparently. The push for transparency has been on the rise across every industry - largely driven by widespread stakeholder pressure.

Jill Dumain, Global VP, Sustainability Solutions, SGS, said: "Data without verification is a slippery slope, particularly for small and medium-sized businesses that are striving to keep on top of the latest regulations.

"We are excited to partner with Diginex to provide our tried-and-tested, independent ESG data assurance services to their customers and help businesses of all sizes access simple technologies and tools to make their sustainability reporting process as efficient and rigorous as possible."

Mark Blick, CEO, Diginex, added: "We are delighted to announce this strategic partnership with one of the most trusted and renowned brands in this space. We look forward to working with SGS to enable businesses of all sizes to not just report on their ESG data, but to also have it independently verified, so they can maintain a competitive and lucrative edge."
