INSIGHTS

Effective analysis of ESG data begins with meaningful comparisons of similar companies. Novata will enable benchmarking in the private markets through the secure collection of standardized, comparable data.

Data will be anonymized when creating benchmarks, so that you can benefit from insights while maintaining control of your data.

IMPACT

Benchmarking will allow GPs and LPs to make informed decisions about their investments and will enable private companies to identify areas for improvement.

Goal setting tools will support data-driven action planning and progress tracking.

“The global economic transition to net zero will be realized through a truly collaborative and aligned approach across both the public and private markets. S&P Global is proud to be investing in much-needed innovation in ESG transparency and benchmarking in the private markets through the creation of Novata.”
