IdealRatings and Foresight Consulting are pleased to announce a strategic partnership combining the  expertise of IdealRatings, providing ESG Data and services to some of the largest global institutions in the  world, coupled with Foresight Consulting’s strong regional experience in strategic advisory and business  transformations. This prominent partnership is to meet the increasing demand for ESG in Africa. IdealRatings  and Foresight Consulting plan to provide their services first in Egypt and then will expand to the rest of the  African countries.

Both partners realize the pressing need for businesses in Egypt and Africa to quickly align with ESG and  Sustainability Standards and Disclosure requirements that have become mainstream and mandatory in  developed markets, and soon in emerging markets. While businesses’ initial interest in ESG is often for  compliance purposes (regulators and investors), yet on the long-term, businesses realize and actualize the  benefits of integrating Sustainability policies by developing resilient and agile business models that improve  their bottom lines and assure its survival in good and worse.

As one of the top ESG provider around the globe, IdealRatings brings its extensive experience in ESG and  Sustainability Solutions and Data into this partnership. For over a decade, IdealRatings has been serving its  global clients with ESG related global data sets including different regulatory requirements in multiple markets  around the world.  

“As part of our focus on Emerging markets we plan to extend our coverage in Africa. The ESG reporting  nowadays is more complex with a broad spectrum of standards and specific regulatory requirements.  Companies are overwhelmed with various requirements and need help to understand them. We thought to  assist the companies in Africa with our expertise in ESG globally and we are excited to work with Foresight  Consulting with their immense expertise in consultancy in the region to expand our services in Africa.  Together we will support the region with the needed ESG expertise to help African companies to set their  ESG strategies and facilitate the complexity of ESG reporting.” said Mohamed Donia, IdealRatings CEO.
