Sustainability consultancy Steward Redqueen has signed an alliance with RepRisk, a specialised data provider on environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks. With the partnership, RepRisk will add the Dutch language to its comprehensive research process – thereby bringing its coverage to a total of 15 languages.
Steward Redqueen is a specialised consulting firm that focuses on ESG, sustainability and socio-economic related engagements. The firm consists of a team of 16 advisors and is based in Haarlem, the Netherlands, although it operates globally, among others through satellite offices in Barcelona (Spain) and New York (USA) and its ‘SRQ Associates Network’.
Founded in 2006 in Zurich, Switzerland, RepRisk is one of the most comprehensive ESG risk databases of the globe, with risk profiles for over 50,000 public and private companies and 12,000 projects as well as for every sector and country in the world – and is updated and growing daily. RepRisk serves clients worldwide including global banks, insurance companies, investment managers, and corporates, helping them to manage and mitigate ESG and reputational risks in day-to-day business.
To date the RepRisk database was available in 14 languages, and on the back of the firm’s expansion strategy, it has now signed an alliance with Steward Redqueen, enabling it to enter and serve the Dutch market. With the support of Steward Redqueen, the Dutch language has now been added to RepRisk’s research process, bringing its language offering to a total of fifteen. “Broad language coverage is important to RepRisk because our experience shows that risks appear at the local level, in local languages, first,” comments Nicole Streuli-Fuerst, Head of Operations and Research at RepRisk. “We are excited to add the Dutch language to our research coverage”.
Wouter Scheepens, Partner at Steward Redqueen, says, “We are very pleased to be working with RepRisk, as we are like-minded organisations that offer complementary ESG propositions. In view of the growth of international ESG markets we trust that this partnership has the potential to generate additional synergies.”
