Mark Labs

Washington, United States

Mark Labs helps asset managers and other institutional resource allocators integrate the UN SDGs, ESG, Climate, and other impact considerations into the very heart of their investment decisions.

The problem we're solving:

Despite the rapid growth of ESG investing, data fails to provide decision-makers with sufficient insight into the ESG performance of their portfolios. This issue makes it difficult to optimize capital allocation for impact and financial returns, and it often deters stakeholders and institutions from sustainable investment.

Our solution:

We are building an ESG and impact analytics software platform for the sustainable investment industry. Our goal is to provide institutional investors with the data and understanding they need in order to make informed decisions that align with their values.

Our differentiator:

Our software provides a proprietary, company-specific materiality assessment to provide users with insights into ESG performance. Data is integrated from many leading external data sources in real-time. Machine learning algorithms and well-recognized impact principles inform the assessment.

Biggest achievement:

Since the start of 2020, we have been working closely with an American asset manager (AUM = $250B AUD) on a proof of concept that has informed and accelerated our product's development. We are also collaborating with the United Nations to inform the allocation of their investments toward the economic inclusion of refugees.
