Newcomers Share Spoils at Stewardship Summit

Norway’s Zerolytics and rezonanz from Switzerland were the joint winners of a pitch event for stewardship and engagement tools held during ESG Investor’s Stewardship Summit 2024. A panel of judges drawn from the asset owner and manager community were unable to separate the claims of the two newly developed products, who beat three other rival offerings. Currently in testing with pilot users, Zerolytics’ data-driven platform uses digital twins to measure carbon-intensive companies’ transition readiness by quantifying the gap between forecasted emissions and stated reduction targets. It also predicts the firms’ net zero emissions pathways by analysing the actions and capital allocation required. Launched last month, rezonanz aims to provide responsible investors with quantitative voting and engagement analytics across individual and collaborative initiatives. This includes a ‘Voting for Sustainability’ ranking system, designed to measure proxy voting records’ alignment with sustainability benchmarks and asset owners’ preferences. All participants in the pitch event were required to outline their value proposition in front of an audience of stewardship and sustainable investment professionals in seven minutes. Other participants in the competition included Maanch, OWL ESG and Verity Platforms.
