WHO IS
ESSAFIN LOGIC?


ESSAFIN is a Canadian firm that has developed a proprietary SAAS of which objectively integrates globally recognized standards: Equator Principles, IFC, UN 17 SDG's and Circular Economy.
The SAAS was built by scientific experts with over 80 years of "boots on the ground" experience. ESSAFIN permitted University of British Columbia's (UBC)  Internationally recognized Life Cycle Lab to objectively review their weighting system making it the most robust, and accurate upstream ESG risk analysis tool on the market today.


 

 

The objective of ESSAFIN Logic Software is to clearly identify ESG risks of projects/processes for the ultimate purpose of strengthening the long- term sustainability of the investment.
 

This comes in the form of standardized, up-stream project by project ESG risk analysis using actual data not self reported data. The result is an ESG risk analysis report that is included as the ESG commitment made by the borrower for their project directly into the loan documentation.
