Our Intelligence Unit provides benchmarks and custom research with a focus on corporate sustainable leadership and ESG preparedness.


Our analysis helps stakeholders assess businesses' and individual leaders' performance as it relates to their sustainability commitments, strategy and governance. We provide recommendations and work closely with stakeholders to identify key indicators and metrics.


We believe that accountability is critical to achieving sustainable outcomes, and we work to ensure that our assessments provide clear and actionable recommendations for improvement.

Usually the assessment requires some or all of the following documents:

ESG Preparedness Assessment

Custom Research

In addition to the above capabilities, we can conduct mandated research that follows the same rigorous methodology and style as our reports.


This means that you can request a research project for a specific stock index, geography, or industry, among other options. While our standard sample size for companies or boards is 100, we can align our research to meet your individual requests.

Our research adheres to strict data quality and governance standards, ensuring accuracy and reliability in our findings

Use Cases

For Investors

As ESG factors become increasingly important for fiduciary duties and long-term (shareholder) value creation, investors need to understand good ESG corporate governance practices and pitfalls. TSB's reporting and advisory capabilities can provide detailed data on specific boards and help investors identify directors who are engaged in ESG issues, understand the quality of sustainability policies and compare them to peers and best practice. We also cut through the noise of annual and sustainability reports and focus on identifying areas of improvement for companies and improve accountability.

For Boards

Boards are ought to become more diverse and proficient in sustainability issues such as climate change, social concerns, and emerging technologies. Directors should understand their level of confidence overseeing these factors and consider seeking more information on how their businesses are affected by emerging opportunities and risks. TSB can provide a disclosure assessment of the state of ESG, how peers are performing, and provide recommendations to improve ESG engagement. This can improve a company's reputation, attract the kind of investors a company seeks, and mitigate risks

For Business Leaders

The governance landscape of businesses is changing, and boards will increasingly scrutinise management's execution and implementation of the sustainability/ESG agenda as part of corporate strategy. Business leaders, CEOs, and members of senior leadership teams should be prepared to work closely with their boards. TSB can help leaders anticipate upcoming areas where stakeholders will demand more rapid changes and provide recommendations for improving ESG practices and organisational design. Effective ESG engagement can lead to increased shareholder value, improved brand reputation, and reduced risks.

For Policy Makers

TSB has regular dialogues with business leaders, board directors, business schools, and the corporate governance consulting community. This enables us to reflect on feasibility of policy proposals. We can provide feedback and commentary on such.

Further, our database includes information on many large global organisations and their ESG oversight performance. That means that we are also tracking laggards and identify severe governance risks at times. We provide policymakers with information on these laggards with carefully vetted data points which can help shape policies that promote sustainability and responsible corporate behaviour.
