We dig deeper, to explore ESG in three dimensions.

Bespoke business intelligence and a reliable ESG radar.

Hello, we’re Curation. A collection of curious souls, sharp thinkers, keen investigators and concise reporters (supported by clever developers and data scientists). We’re industry experts and sustainability specialists with astute commercial minds and the ability to make meaningful connections that many others are likely to miss.

An unwavering interest in everything ESG is a given. We love nothing more than immersing ourselves in multiple layers of information, traversing sources, stories, subjects, sectors and geographies to identify emerging trends, risks and opportunities – so we can inform our clients about the likely impacts and implications on their business and wider communities.

We help companies communicate with their clients too – writing insightful email, blog and white paper content that helps set them apart in their sector.

 

How it works: the added value of in-depth intelligence

Our ability to dig deeper, to explore ESG in three dimensions, is a key differentiator for our business – and gives our clients a clear competitive edge.

Because we’re constantly following trends and developments, we’re able to build a vast bank of insights on each topic, which creates a body of intelligence around each theme over time. Lateral thinking allows us to join the dots, connecting stories and issues to present conclusions and pathways that simply couldn’t be seen at surface level.

It’s this three-dimensional understanding of an issue or potential implication that enables businesses to be better informed about the options available to them.
