Our topic today is ESG Data. With sustainability becoming increasingly important in business, environmental aspects of a business may have a huge impact in a company’s future.

(ESG )Environmental, social and governance topics represent the three main factors which measure the sustainability and ethical impact of an investment in a company or business.

In this video will learn what ESG data is, how it is collected from different sources, and how it is been used in business.

What is ESG data?
ESG data is knowledge on how good a company is at managing and disclosing non-financial factors that are relevant to the long-term health of its business and its license to operate.

how corporations respond to climate change, how good they are with water management

how effective their health and safety policies are in the protection against accidents, how they manage their supply chains, how they treat their workers

whether they have a corporate culture that builds trust and fosters innovation.

Data Sources
ESG, annual and proxy reports
– statistics on companies ESG performance can be directly aggregated from the company’s external reporting via scraping and NLP

Government & NGO websites
– Similarly, on a national level, the data can be collected from government and NGO reports

Other and alternative sources ( 3rd party)
– financial news and reports, company reviews and social media.

How to use ESG data?
In essence ESG Data can be used like any alternative data for financial analysis purposes. This is why investors and hedge funds, willing to make better investment decisions, use ESG Data to identify companies with lower financial risks due to their promising environmental or other practises.

ESG Data quality
Data sources are non standardized and provided by companies themselves. This can lead to occasional bias

Use of alternative data sources like company reviews and social media can help to balance the bias that is at times associated with company provided information.

While company reports are not updated that often, some alternative ESG Data sources like social media and company reviews can give you timely insights that make you smarter than your competitors.

How ESG Metrics Work And Why All Investors Should Care

“The Conscious Investor” is presented by Nuveen.

Martin Kremenstein, head of retirement and ETF solutions at Nuveen, explains how ESG metrics serve as an indicator of quality and can be used as a risk management tool.

According to research from MSCI, companies in the bottom ESG quintile have been twice as likely to suffer a catastrophic loss (over 95% cumulative loss) within three years.

MSCI downgraded Equifax to the lowest ESG rating on cybersecurity concerns a year before the data breach was announced.

Kremenstein says that Facebook was excluded from Nuveen’s NuShares ESG Large-Cap Growth ETF from the time it launched in December 2016. He explains, “it scored relatively poorly, compared to other tech companies over data privacy concerns.”
