Refinitiv ESG data facilitates the integration of metrics and scores which indicate sustainability into research. Transparent and comparable ESG data and scores are available for over 10,000 companies. More than 450 active ESG data points enable researchers to conduct in-depth assessments of how companies are performing across a range of underlying environmental, social and governance themes.
“The addition of Datastream will play a key role in discovery, analysis and interpretation of key economic indicators for our global WRDS community, while the inclusion of ESG data comes at a time when sustainability issues are top of mind for the public and political spheres,” said Robert Zarazowski, Managing Director of WRDS. “Refinitiv data continues to be a vital resource for our researchers.”
“The ESG footprint of a company is no longer a niche consideration for investors or indeed wider stakeholders such as academic institutions,” said Leon Saunders Calvert, Head of Research and Portfolio Management at Refinitiv. “As the market around ESG matures, the need to identify the correlation between risk and performance increases, as does the need to measure the social impact of company operations. Over the coming years, the value of academic input into issues of financial materiality will increase. We are delighted to service this audience through our partnership with WRDS.”
