The project develops and operationalizes a quali-quantitative framework to improve the standardized disclosure and assessment of Environmental Efficiency (EE) and ESG performance of companies, including SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises). The objective is to improve the standardized disclosure of environmental efficiency (EE) and ESG information of companies in order to facilitate access to long-term financing and improve risk assessment, while mitigating the risk of greenwashing. TranspArEEnS achieves its goal through five objectives: 1) develop a standardized, large-scale EE-ESG database; 2) develop a standardized EE-ESG SMEs survey; 3) develop a standardized EE-ESG rating; 4) support long-term EE securitization; 5) dissemination and capacity building.
