Brief description of the data offering

SGA specialises in tailor-made ESG research and data solutions that align with global ESG frameworks, standards, and guidelines. The engagement models are flexible to meet each client's specific ESG needs. We ensure the availability, accuracy, and completeness of data through rigorous secondary and primary research. With expertise in various asset classes, we cover over 18,000 issuers and provide insights based on 1,500+ unique ESG indicators, enabling informed decision-making. Our team of 370+ subject matter experts, combined with our in-house AI-enabled tech tools, offers a comprehensive solution for all ESG requirements. Our sustainability research covers 16 Asian and European languages, facilitating effective and thorough research. Our data-as-a-service (DaaS) solutions for SFDR and EU taxonomy empower clients to make well-informed investment decisions.

Where and how do you source your data?

We aggregate ESG data from a diverse range of publicly available sources, including annual reports, sustainability reports, integrated reports, TCFD reports, CDP reports, codes of business conduct and ethics, sustainability/ESG policies, press releases, newsletters, corporate website filings, exchanges, and other relevant documents. To streamline our research and ensure accurate ESG assessments, we have developed proprietary AI-powered solutions. These solutions include the Publication Monitoring Tool (PMT), Intelligent Data Extraction and Tagging Tool (IDEAT), and the News/Controversies Aggregator Tool. By utilising machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP), these tools optimise our capacity to monitor a wide range of sources, while making the research process efficient to provide precise and comprehensive ESG insights, enabling quicker delivery to our clients.

What is the cost for your data offering?

We have a highly flexible approach to pricing our ESG services, recognizing that each assignment has its own distinct requirements. We understand that organisations have varied ESG goals, engagement scope and requirements, making a one-size-fits-all pricing model inadequate. sInstead, we conduct a thorough assessment of the specific project, taking into account its objectives, complexity, and unique needs. This allows us to offer a customised pricing structure that aligns with the client's expectations and budget. We consider factors such as the scope of the project, data aggregation guidelines, analysis, consulting assistance, as well as any additional specialised services or support required. Our aim is to deliver cost-effective solutions while upholding the highest standards of quality and service in the ESG industry.
