With over 1,400 signatories to the UN Principles for Responsible Investing, representing $59 trillion of assets under management (just over half of the world’s institutional assets) there’s never been a greater need for ESG solutions from the investment community.

The use of ESG is particularly relevant in Europe as a result of EU mandates requiring companies with more than 500 employees to disclose diversity, environmental, and other related factors.

In the U.S, a number of large pension funds — particularly public sector funds — and other institutional investors have increased ESG scrutiny related to their investments.

With so many stakeholders pushing for increased disclosure of ESG data, Thomson Reuters is in a unique position to provide trusted answers to the sustainable investment decisions that matter most.

“Changing regulations, market conditions and political factors are driving greater awareness and scrutiny of ESG-related metrics among asset managers globally,” said Ranjit Tinikar, Managing Director and Head of Advisory and Investment Management.

But is the quality and availability of ESG data keeping up with these demands?
