Purpose and approach
We provide the investment community with independent, consistent, and evidence-based assessment of ESG performance, and validation of ESG claims by companies.
What we do
We assess the ESG performance of companies on behalf of investors or potential investors, validating claims against actual performance.
We look for and assess ESG related vulnerabilities of companies that may affect the quality and risk of investments in them.
Investors who are looking to pay greater attention to the ESG issues and risks around their portfolios have five strategic options: Minimalist, Exclusion, Passive Selection, Active Selection and Impact Investment.
ESG Assessment and Validation LLP is able to advise and assist investors to develop ESG strategies in all areas; ensuring that the adopted approach is robust in the face of scrutiny, that consequent investments are consistent with the strategy , and that the overall strategy is coherent and evidence-based.
ESG Validation, a London-based firm, aims to address a major gap in the current architecture of global capital markets that will be critical in advancing ESG-aligned business leadership and investment management: the presence of a trusted, neutral, and competent authority to provide a view on the ESG claims, measures and practices of corporates and companies around the globe.

We support the investor community and official regulators: we do not work for companies or corporations (except at the behest of an investor); we do not support or advise charities; we do not partner with private ESG ratings, leagues or endorsement schemes or enterprises.
We believe this exclusive focus enhances the probity of the advice we offer investors.
