Patents are well suitable to have a deep insight into a corporates technology strategy, analysing the patent portfolio in terms of quality (value) and technology focus. This now also allows to identify those inventions that address sustainable technologies (the "E" of ESG - Environment, Social and Governance). A finer analysis even allows to assign these sustainable inventions towards the 17 UN SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) that were published September 2016 by the united nations. This enables a granular matching-analysis between the UD SDG and the R&D activities and intensity in these fields. This SDG Patent Asset analysis allows the first time to rate a company's ESG and SDG capabilities based on their R&D outcome (patents and their values). These information are available for all companies worldwide.
