Structured and comparable sustainability data has so far been a rare commodity in financial markets. There is no lack of data; issuers of green, social, sustainability and sustainability-linked (GSSS) bonds disclose a wide array of allocation and impact data, which is crucial to asset managers and investors when complying with their own reporting obligations. What is lacking is data standardisation and comparability.

In response to this challenge, some data providers now offer structured sustainability data. How are these initiatives improving the harmonisation and comparability of sustainability data? And what do issuers and asset managers need to address the sustainability data challenge once and for all?

This webinar will cover all these aspects and more and will bring you unique insights and perspectives from data providers, issuers and asset managers.

Key areas of discussion

  • Current status of GSSS data, best practices and new trends in impact reporting
  • How are issuers of GSSS bonds and asset managers dealing with sustainability data, and what do they need to overcome the challenge?
  • Examples of data initiatives that structure sustainability data and increase comparability and harmonisation
  • The case of emerging markets, with a focus on LatAm
