Optimize ESG and financial performance with the Insights7 Platform

ESG is about creating sustainable corporate value

ESG – environmental, social and governance – factors can be key drivers of performance and value. Insights7 enables you to integrate your financial and ESG data into a single platform to deliver on this promise. Our platform is organized around a customizable value chain structure in which you evaluate how you’re doing today—and where you can confidently make the most impactful improvements going forward. This structure helps turn ESG into a driver of overall business value optimization that benefits customers, stakeholders and shareholders.

Our approach helps you move seamlessly from the big picture, systems view of the value chain to the focused view of optimizing the work done in individual value chain links:
