Our Products

Environment Social and Governance Goals

Standard portfolio-wide
ESG Reporting

Investors and companies prioritize Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria for moral and economic reasons. Even though ESG criteria cover a wide range of non-financial factors, clear financial implications remain.

At Tablecloth, we developed analytical tools that - when applied to a company or a portfolio of companies - identify specific areas of concern in a wide-ranging ESG approach that includes climate change, systemic discrimination, and workforce inequity/exclusion.

Diversity Equity and Inclusion

A workforce diversity lens

Companies must do their part to eliminate systemic
discrimination, harassment and exclusion in the
workforce for all populations based on race, ethnicity, gender identity, LGBTQ+ status, religion, age, disabilities, and more.

At Tablecloth, we've developed analytical tools that identify areas of concern and prioritize areas for focus. These tools can be applied to companies and funds looking to promote Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in their workplaces.

Custom Models

We'll build a custom model based on your specific goals.

Institutional investors have committed to paying closer attention to things like fair pay, paid sick leave, environmental concerns and other areas of impact. That higher level of scrutiny will require better and more accurate data – and that is where we thrive.

We understand that each company is in a unique position. As a trusted third-party, we’re here to help validate and strengthen your existing efforts through customized data models based around your impact thesis. Your model will evolve with your thesis.
