FactSet Adds More Robust ESG Data to Its Academic Platform

FactSet has very recently added rolling one year plus year-to-date ESG data to its academic platform. The source of the data is Truvalue Labs, a FactSet Company, which applies AI to quantify Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) data found in over 100,000 unstructured text sources including news, trade journals, NGO, and industry reports. The ESG Ranks data produces an overall company rank based on industry percentile leveraging the 26 ESG categories defined by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB).

Accessing Company-Specific ESG Data

To access the data, search for a company’s ticker; when the Overview page displays, click ESG on the left. On the ESG page, scroll down to Further Analysis to link to detailed Screening and Excel Modelling spreadsheets.

Note: Be patient, the ESG page and the Screening and Excel links take a few minutes to open up.
