St. Paul, Minnesota, October 21, 2020: Antea Group USA introduced a new service to their Environmental Mergers and Acquisitions offerings called Sustainability Transaction Assessment Report (STAR).

STAR is a research-driven report that delivers clear data to help you understand environment, social, and corporate governance (ESG) risk. It cuts through the confusion and zeros in on the issues that are most likely to have a material impact on an investment.

“ESG is a concept developed around measuring and monitoring responsible investing to meet the pressures of customers, investors, and other stakeholders. Additionally, ESG investments have demonstrated to produce greater profitability and resiliency over non-ESG investments,” says Matt Bell, Environmental Mergers and Acquisitions Practice Leader and Senior Consultant at Antea Group USA. “During M&A activity, understanding an investment target’s status relative to ESG factors can significantly affect decision making. Antea Group’s STAR service allows our clients to efficiently evaluate ESG risks and benefits during their due diligence process in a consistent and cost-effective manner to help dealmakers better understand the complete risk picture, valuations, and potential value building opportunities.”

Features and benefits of STAR include:

  • STAR clearly outlines ESG risks and opportunities and provides actionable insights for those involved in M&A activity.
  • The report provides critical information to help dealmakers make better go/no-go decisions, influence business valuation, and advise management teams on ESG factors that could impact their investment.
  • STAR uses recognized industry tools like SASB, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board’s materiality framework and standard, and RepRisk, the global leader and pioneer in data science, specializing in premium ESG and business conduct risk research and quantitative solutions.
