Brief description of the data offering

Ethical Screening's analysis identifies the material contributions made to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and positive themes, at the company level - this can then be applied to portfolios or funds to establish overall SDG alignment, either weighted (using turnover) or unweighted.

Driven by a robust methodology, developed since 2018, and strongly linked to the underlying targets, this analysis stands up to scrutiny and can be used in your reporting. The analysis is supplied with turnover and future intention fields, supported by detailed narrative providing the information needed for client conversations, and sound investment decisions.

SDG analysis can be priced on a per company basis for smaller lists of research, or in price bands for blocks of coverage where larger numbers of companies are required. For further information on our pricing please contact us.
