Speed and efficiency

4.0 10 months ago

Comments: I've really enjoyed the experience, and the fact that they have started to build a community for ESG practitioners to share best practice and learnings.

Pros:

KEY ESG’s software has increased the accuracy and speed at which ESG data is gathered. With a robust reporting system in place, Pollen Street has been able to set data-driven targets for next year. These insights, along with KEY ESG’s specialist guidance, have allowed Pollen Street’s portfolio companies to spend less time reporting and more time effecting positive change.

Cons:

This was still a relatively new product when we onboarded, and as such there was some functionality that still needed to be developed (eg bulk upload), and some glitches. However, these have been ironed out and they have a roadmap to improve features and functionality

Alternatives Considered: Worldfavor

Reasons for Switching to KEY ESG: Customer support. I felt that I could build a partnership to make sure that we get the best out of the relationship, and to ensure that we get the best service that is relevant to Pollen Street.

Pros:

I liked the clear categories with detail on how to gather the data if you didn't know how and the team was super friendly and helpful when I had any questions.

Cons:

It seemed very UK centric and did not include several countries my coworkers had traveled to for scope 3 emissions category.

Comments: The overall experience with KEY ESG is very positive. ESG reporting is new to our organization & KEY ESG have helped guide us through the process.

An intuitive system. The system allows the user to upload evidence/files supporting statements & data.

Cons:

I am sure as we use KEY ESG more we will find potential improvements but for now there no features that we do not like.
