There are numerous third party ESG data providers with profiles on publicly traded companies, which are used by asset managers to evaluate current and possible portfolio holdings. These profiles may have missing information or perhaps errors in their data sets, which is often caused by inaccurate or incomplete disclosure by the profiled company. The G&A team assists public companies in the quest to ensure that your profile information is accurate and up-to-date for ESG raters and rankers.
We use a proprietary mapping of ESG data points from the leading data providers, including Bloomberg, ISS, MSCI, Refinitiv, Sustainalytics, and Vigeo Eiris, as well as others depending on client needs. This process results in a report on key results and an interactive Excel blueprint containing all of the hundreds of specific data points that your company is being rated and ranked on.
G&A will present a clear and concise breakdown for company management of the ESG topics and disclosures that are the most important to focus on from an investor perspective, We will highlight the most effective ways for your companyto move the needle for ESG raters and rankers and the asset owners and managers who use these ratings. This will help to focus the firm’s sustainability efforts and avoid wasted time and money.
In addition, many ESG data providers may have incomplete or perhaps inaccurate and outdated information in their profiles. G&A will identify these important data points and help the client team engage with the ESG data providers to develop a more complete and accurate public ESG profile for the firm.
