Looking back on 2019

Climate Week continued to grow as the time and place for the world to showcase remarkable climate action and discuss how to do more.

The climate crisis and the sustainable leadership trend is becoming increasingly central to developing sustainable investments. Our clients are demanding data on companies who track, measure, and report non-financial operations in the most transparent way possible.

As a leading provider of financial markets data and infrastructure, we help our clients build sustainability into their investment strategy with ESG data and services which allow them to make the best-informed investment decisions, driving growth, and mitigating ESG risks. 

Our ESG database is one of the richest in the industry and covers 70% of global market cap across 400+ ESG data points going back to fiscal year 2002.
