Sustainability & ESG data

Data for a sustainable global economy

With over 15 years of experience with Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) data, FTSE Russell provides investors with the models and data tools necessary to understand a company’s operational and product related ESG risks and opportunities. 

Overview

As more and more investors are incorporating ESG considerations into their decision making there is a need for data that is quantitative and transparent and minimizes the subjectivity inherent in a number of ESG issues. 

FTSE Russell maintains two core data models: the ESG Ratings and data model assesses operational ESG risks and performance, while the Green Revenues (LCE) data model classifies and measures revenue exposure to products that deliver environmental solutions.  By splitting our data model  into these two dimensions users can determine more specifically whether to target ESG issues related to (operational) risk or (product) opportunities.
