Company Data

Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance - ESG

An overview of Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance - ESG 

  • Refinitiv provides a rich source of ESG data, covering 80% of global market cap, spanning 76 countries.
  • In today’s world of globalization and interdependence and in times of financial crisis, issues such as climate change, biodiversity, human rights, “licence to operate,” business ethics and corporate governance are at the forefront of public and political attention.
  • How companies respond to these issues is becoming as important as traditional financial metrics when evaluating corporate performance, therefore playing a more central role in investors’ decision-making efforts to identify long-term opportunities and risks for companies. ESG factors can be easily integrated into portfolio analysis, equity research, screening or quantitative analysis.
  • Information is collected by our ESG specialists based on publicly available sources such as company websites, annual reports, and corporate social responsibility reports or contributed by firms then audited and standardized.
