Clayton, Dublier & Rice is participating in a pilot program with pulsESG, a SaaS platform that offers a centralized system of record and reference for ESG metrics.
The idea is to enable the $57 billion private equity firm’s portfolio companies to make measurable progress toward ESG goals in a way that can be validated and benchmarked by management and stakeholders. The pulsESG platform will be able to design, test, configure and improve initiatives to manage vast amounts of ESG data.
“The pulsESG team is excited to provide an integrated, comprehensive, and flexible SaaS platform that will support the efforts of CD&R and its funds’ portfolio companies to define, capture, analyze, derive insight, and improve their ESG footprint,” said Murat Sönmez, pulsESG co-founder and CEO. “We are pleased to be working on this pilot program with CD&R, which is well recognized for its commitment to operational excellence.”
Founded in 2021, the firm sees to provide auditable analytics that can be integrated with both the source and destination ESG systems of customers. This level of information, founders say, empowers enterprises to make more informed ESG decisions using a platform that also provides end-users the flexibility to modify it based on changes in the ESG regulatory landscape and according to their stakeholder needs.
