Brief description of the data offering

As our name suggests, Ethical Screening has a wealth of expertise in providing research for traditional ethical (or negative) screening. Our research includes multiple criteria options to cover the full range of client concerns, including norms based, controversial weapons, and faith based criteria. We can produce bespoke research to support existing collective investment funds which operate with exclusion criteria. All research includes a detailed narrative to explain the basis of exclusion, with turnover analysis if required.

Where and how do you source your data?

We have a dedicated and highly qualified team of researchers who collate information from many sources to build an accurate picture of a company’s operations, impacts and aims. We refer to:

  • Publicly available information from the company
  • NGO information, media stories and other independent sources
  • Subscription sources relevant to the research required
  • Direct company contact

What is the cost for your data offering?

Ethical 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.
