About Datamaran

Our vision is to embed ESG into the DNA of every major company in the world, because that is when real change can happen.

Datamaran comes from humble beginnings, an idea germinated by three founder members in the East End of London, but we are now established in the boardrooms of some of the largest global companies. We might have pioneered the use of technology to bring order to the complex world of ESG risk and reward, but at our core we are a people business. 

Our experts come from diverse backgrounds in ESG policy, banking and technology. All have a deep understanding of the challenges you face and a shared passion to change how the world does business. We have offices in London, New York and Valencia. Our people live and make an impact across the globe.

If you are a business leader, or the ESG leader of your business, contact us for a demo to see how we can help you to create real change.

“We have 120 clients now, but what if we had 1000 or 5000? That is when real change can happen.”
