Since 2003, OneReport’s software platform has helped leading organizations navigate corporate responsibility frameworks, pilot the information capture and response process, and deliver ESG data to ratings agencies and other stakeholders. OneReport addresses the daunting array of frameworks by offering an easy and efficient tool for managing data internally, and in turn, connects companies to the industry’s leading ESG raters.
