With relationships and pre-built data pipelines to many of the leading data suppliers, Crux can help you fast-track your discovery and evaluation of new datasets.
Ingesting ESG Data
As most sources are external to your organization, building an adequate data supply chain to ingest at scale can be resource intensive, frustrating, and non-differentiating to your core business.

The Crux platform is unmatched in scale, agility, and capabilities when it comes to pipeline building, maintenance, and customization.
Lack of Standard & Greenwashing
The lack of standardized ESG benchmarks across industries and geographies makes it particularly challenging to measure the true impact (and accuracy) of self-reported metrics reported by companies.

Multi-billion Asset Manager Leverages Crux to Ingest and Normalize Various Sources of External ESG Data
Through a multi-cloud implementation, Crux reduced operating costs for a $500bn+ sovereign wealth fund and allowed for faster trials and more data inclusion in the fund’s strategies.
Faced with new regulatory and internal pressures to be ESG compliant the fund identified multiple public data sources to develop its ESG benchmarks. However, the data was on various websites and the schemas were not structured to quickly integrate with internal data workflows.
The firm hired Crux to manage data onboarding and operations, thereby enabling the firm’s valuable talent to focus on data science instead of data engineering. Most importantly, Crux was able to quickly curate and match external datasets to combine and integrate the data with its internal data workflows.
