The Model of Resource Efficiency
Our portfolios are systematically constructed based on extensive proprietary research. Through the standardisation of unstructured environmental data, our research process gives context and comparability to corporate environmental disclosures by objectively comparing the environmental balance sheets of companies across 32 industry sectors. Our evidence-based approach, through the stripping out of subjective data, measures sustainable action over intent.
The environmental data and sustainability insights we collect grow more significant by the year. Our resource efficiency database (MoRE) dates back to 2005, and covers over 1000 companies in the developed markets. We believe it is one of the most extensive repositories of environmental data in the world. This gives Osmosis a deep perspective on a company’s relative resource efficiency.
