Making a Submission: ESG Surveys

Assent’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) surveys capture data from suppliers for their customers on the nine risk types most relevant to this industry: climate change, resource use, biodiversity, human and labor rights, diversity and inclusion, organizational commitment, resiliency, and data protection and privacy.
