ESG Insight is founded to ensure there is a place, where governmental and scientific news and insights on investor oriented environmental, social, and governance (ESG) data is gathered.

ESG Insight is founded by Dr. Jane Thostrup Jagd, who has 25 years of experience from compliance and project management, with a deep interest in data quality and analysis – financial as well as non-financial.

Dr Jagd has for many years worked with CSR reporting for one of the World’s largest conglomerates, A.P. Moller-Maersk, and has amongst others moved the CSR data collection from Group Sustainability to Group Accounting and into the financial consolidation tool (HFM), established a control framework, and a Sustainability GAAP, whereby the CSR data quality raised from “poor” to “good” in 4 months – auditor verified. The Sustainability Report was awarded the Danish Auditor Society’s CSR award for being the best CSR report in Denmark in 2012, 2013, and 2014. Dr. Jagd has since 2013 been a technical working group member of Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB) in UK.

Dr. Jagd was in 2016 signed on as consultant for United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) to make the research for and establish the Issue Note for International Standards of Accounting and Reporting (ISAR) 33 on: Enhancing the role of reporting in attaining the Sustainable Development Goals: Integration of the environmental, social and governance information into companies’ reporting.
