Established in 2019 by Charles Radclyffe, former head of AI at Fidelity, EthicsGrade (our initial name) was initially dedicated to Corporate Digital Responsibility (CDR).

Beginning as a research firm staffed with a team of dedicated analysts, we gradually broadened our focus. This evolution led us to develop publicly accessible ratings before venturing into the realm of supplementary private data on ESG practices through our proprietary survey platform, InsideView.

It was during the operation of InsideView that we directly engaged with sustainability professionals, gaining invaluable insights into the arduous process of responding to ESG disclosure requests.

Drawing upon years of extensive research, we had developed an ESG graph, underpinned by cutting-edge AI technology. It became evident that this technology held immense potential to alleviate the burdens faced by ESG professionals worldwide.

The next chapter…

Senior and junior professionals across various sectors such as ESG, Tendering, Risk, and Compliance often find themselves overwhelmed by the burden of responding to repetitive disclosure requests. These requests typically cover a range of topics including ESG, cybersecurity, and more, and the process of fulfilling them often involves tedious copying and pasting from Excel databases filled with previously answered questions.

This monotonous task not only drains valuable employee time and resources but also contributes to high staff turnover rates. Moreover, relying on Excel for such critical tasks poses significant risks, as it increases the likelihood of errors and inaccuracies in the information provided.

EthicsAnswer offers a solution to alleviate these challenges. By harnessing the power of AI, EthicsAnswer streamlines the completion of disclosure requests, drastically reducing the time required for this task. Furthermore, it simplifies the approval process by centralising it within the platform, ensuring efficiency and accuracy at every step. With EthicsAnswer, professionals can reclaim their time and redirect their focus towards more strategic and impactful endeavours, confident in the reliability and precision of the information provided.
