Brief description of the data offering

  • Essential indicators include historical and forward-looking indicators (up to 2030) for each of the 65,000+ companies, capacity, production, emissions intensities and absolute emissions, geolocation information, and company information to facilitate matching to financial portfolios.
  • Advanced indicators include, in addition to the essential offering, separation of emissions by scopes, additional consolidation methodologies, extended time horizons, and ownership details.

Where and how do you source your data?

We partner with leading business intelligence providers and open-source data initiatives to source data on physical assets in the real economy. Our team maps the physical assets with security issuers using ownership data from various third-party sources. We calculate key indicators at asset, company and security levels, including greenhouse gas emissions metrics, using our in-house bottom-up asset-based algorithms and methodologies. We triangulate multiple data sources across the sectors we cover, work with data providers to fill data gaps and complement this with our own research. Finally, we also gather information and feedback directly from some of the companies we cover, and through partnerships with research institutions. This consistent framework enables comparability across assets, companies and sectors.

What is the cost for your data offering?

The cost is variable and depends on the granularity and coverage of the data, the use case for the data, and the size and type of user (non-profit research, commercial application).
