RELATED TOPICS​

Bloomberg have made Sustainalytics’ ESG Research and Ratings available via the Bloomberg Terminal. 

With the proliferation of sustainable investing strategies over the last several years, investors increasingly need access to high-quality, in-depth ESG information. Now Bloomberg Terminal subscribers can use Sustainalytics’ ESG Research and Ratings alongside the broader functionality across the Bloomberg Terminal.
 
Sustainalytics’ ESG Risk Ratings enable investors to utilise material ESG insights for security selection, portfolio management activities, ESG integration, and engagement and voting activities. To measure company-level ESG risk, Sustainalytics’ ESG Risk Ratings combine the concepts of management and exposure to arrive at an overall quantitative rating, which is expressed across a risk spectrum of severe, high, medium, low or negligible. By providing an absolute measure to assess company ESG risk, Sustainalytics’ ESG Risk Ratings are comparable for companies in different industries. Investors can supplement their research processes by incorporating Sustainalytics’ ESG Risk Ratings into their current environment of Bloomberg equity, fixed income, and portfolio analysis tools.
 
“The demand for ESG data is skyrocketing as today’s investors need a holistic picture of potential material ESG issues facing their portfolio companies to fulfill regulatory requirements, meet client demand, and mitigate portfolio risk,” says Patricia Torres, Global Head of Sustainable Finance Solutions at Bloomberg. “We’re pleased to expand our ESG data coverage and offer Sustainalytics’ ESG data via the Bloomberg Terminal giving users access to additional high-quality research and data.”
 
“Sustainalytics is delighted to provide our ESG research and ratings to Bloomberg Terminal users,” says Shila Wattamwar, Executive Director of ESG Product Strategy at Sustainalytics. “By taking a material ESG issue focus with our ratings, Sustainalytics offers Bloomberg Terminal users a forward-looking view of companies’ ESG risks as well as a lens into how well they manage these risks. Our consistent and transparent risk-based approach can fulfill their users’ increasingly diverse needs for ESG research and data, enabling them to make more informed investment decisions.”
