Physis is proud to announce that our sustainable product data on the Consumer Staples, Utilities, and Health Care sectors have been released. Our research team has analyzed hundreds of sustainability reports, company websites, and financial records to determine the sustainable alignment of various products under differing companies. Our team searched for products made with sustainable practices such as sustainable material selection, energy and resource use, product purpose, financial accessibility, and end-of-life management. Understanding sustainable products are essential to help investors understand the tangible impact their investments have on the environment and society.
Analyzing sustainable products provides a unique opportunity to understand ESG from the bottom-up in a way that expresses the importance of sustainability through products that consumers use daily. Physis also uses products to determine the materiality of sustainable initiatives for a sector by evaluating whether sustainable characteristics have been applied to products that most contribute to a company’s bottom line. To better contextualize the data, the team also assessed the level of impact and innovation of a product relative to peers in its industry. Life-cycle impact characteristics were introduced (design, production, transportation, intended use, etc.) were also included for further detail.
Our research team determined the alignment of these products to up to two Sustainable Development Goals to show the specific ways their impact characteristics contribute to a sustainable future. While the report primarily analyzes product categories, our team identified three standout companies and their products in each sector to show consumers, investors, and competitors the future of production in a given field.
Our research offers new insight into sustainability at a company level. As opposed to focusing on surface-level sustainable contributions per revenue share from a generic product category, Physis uniquely evaluates the sustainable qualities of individual products. Further, through analyzing common characteristics and products across companies, our research revealed which products and impact characteristics companies currently prioritize. Today’s companies have a more significant impact on the world than ever before. Understanding how their decisions, operations, and product offerings currently impact sustainability is key to a sustainable future.
While our product reports include new data on the trends and characteristics of products in the previously mentioned sectors, the only place to find out which companies in your portfolio are making sustainable products is the Physis platform. Sign up today!
