Cost Effective Ways to Collect ESG Information From Your Vendors

Fortress’ Asset to Vendor Library, launched in 2019, created a frictionless ecosystem between suppliers and asset owners to share cyber security-related information in a safe and reliable manner.

The success of this ecosystem led the Utilities Sector think of new ways to utilize the ecosystem to expand beyond the collection of cyber security data. The sector is now focused on collecting ESG and Foreign Ownership data.  

In this webinar, you will gain an understanding of...

  • How ESG and Foreign Ownership data from its vendors is important to utilities
  • How the utility sector is working together to design a common ESG assessment tool for use across the industry
  • How the Fortress ecosystem has been re-tooled to securely aggregate ESG and Foreign Ownership data sets
  • How suppliers can utilize the ecosystem to answer multiple utility transaction requests quickly, easily, and reduce the sales cycles
