iTSBR - Our Intelligence Unit
Our new Intelligence Unit provides customised research and analysis to help stakeholders assess organisations' performance as it relates to their sustainability commitments and ensure accountability. We provide scoring models, recommendations, and/or work closely with stakeholders to identify key indicators and metrics, and to develop customised assessments and reports that provide insights into organisations performance on ESG leadership. 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.
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 TSBR exercise 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

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. TSBR'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.
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. TSBR 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. TSBR 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
TSBR has a regular dialogue 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 (Include link to SEC response).
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.
We create custom reports and analysis to assess organisations' sustainability commitments and approach to accountability. These tailored assessments include recommendations, market comaprisons and scores with an emphasis on ESG strategy, leadership, and governance.
Our reports are useful as additional inputs for board effectiveness exercises, audits, investor analysis and ESG performance assessments beyond traditional ESG ratings.
Outside/In ESG Leadership Preparedness Assessment
A customised report that evaluates the ESG preparedness of publicly listed companies.
Our assessment typically covers three key areas:
Overview of the organisation's impact and sustainable revenue generation
Details about E&S governance, board composition, and the ESG engagement/track record (ESGe) of directors
Performance on sustainability/ESG strategy implementation, with a focus on management
Our tailored report provides valuable insights into the company's ESG preparedness and identifies areas for improvement.
ESG Leadership Preparedness Assessment for Private Companies
A survey and questionnaire-driven evaluation that assesses the ESG preparedness of privately held companies.
Similar to our assessment for publicly listed companies, our assessment for private companies evaluates three key areas: the organisation's impact and sustainable revenue generation, E&S governance and board composition, and sustainability/ESG strategy implementation.
Our assessment can be facilitated with a board effectiveness or other corporate governance advisor and provides valuable insights into the company's ESG preparedness, highlighting areas for improvement.
Peer Comparison Add-On
Provides valuable insights into how a company's ESG preparedness and performance compare to its peers. If we have data from previous research that is complementary to your requested board assessment, we can provide information on the business' peers.
For a more detailed peer comparison, we can customise the scope of the board assessment to meet your specific needs. This enables companies to gain a deeper understanding of their performance relative to their peers, identifying areas for improvement and opportunities.
Individual Director Searches
Provide valuable insights into the ESG engagement and disclosure quality of individual directors, whether for self-audit purposes or vetting and referencing.
Using our ESGe checklist as the foundational methodology, we can customise our assessment to hone in on particular areas of interest.
Comprehensive analysis of the ESG engagement and disclosure quality of multiple individuals or boards, typically focused on a particular industry, geography, skill set, or board.
Similar to our Individual Director Searches, our ESGe Mapping service uses our ESGe checklist as the foundational methodology to provide valuable insights, but contains more samples.
