Investors who rely on Bloomberg Professional Service data will now have access to environmental, social and governance research assessments produced by Sustainalytics, a global investment firm that specializes in sustainability research and analysis. All Bloomberg Professional Service users will have access to Sustainalytics’ proprietary indicators, measurements that provide a macro level assessment of how companies are managing their ESG capital. Subscribers to both platforms will be able to review more in-depth insights into 1600 global, developed markets, ranked against industry peers across 15 performance indicators.

The coverage includes analysis of a company’s management and risk exposure, thematic as well as overall ESG scores, and momentum trends in ESG programs and practices. In coming months, historical ESG scores dating back to 2009 will become available, allowing investors to track performance over time. According to Bloomberg, the collaboration is the result of an annual increase of 48 percent in its customers using ESG data. Bloomberg and Sustainalytics say that ESG information is becoming a critical element in the decision making process of investors, and another indication that sustainability is being mainstreamed in capital markets.
