Japanese Financial Services Agency’s (FSA) Code of Conduct for ESG Evaluation and Data Providers
LSEG endorses the Japanese Financial Services Agency’s Code of Conduct for ESG Evaluation and Data Providers and welcome their continued efforts in supporting enhanced environmental, social, and governance standards in its markets, in line with IOSCO principles. It is a positive step toward improving the reliability, comparability and interpretability of ESG ratings and data products while remaining sufficiently flexible in a rapidly developing space. LSEG’s FTSE Russell and Refinitiv businesses will seek to comply with the Code and its six core principles.
Additional information on the adherence of FTSE Russell and Refinitiv to the Code of Conduct will be available in due course on their respective websites.
