Swesif’s tips: ESI – A Tool to better capture corporate and investment impacts on the Earth system

Swesif is intensifying its collaboration with research. Take a look at the newly launched ESI tool, designed to assess the impact of companies and investments on the Earth system.

guiding improved decision-making.
