Brief description of the data offering

The LGX DataHub is a platform that displays all relevant information featured in the documentation of sustainable bonds (frameworks, external reviews, post-issuance reports…) in a centralized, structured, comparable and exportable tool.

The LGX DataHub offers a global coverage of sustainable bonds, along with the most granular and structured data in the market. At the pre-issuance stage, the platform includes detailed information on all four pillars of the ICMA GBP/SBP. At the post-issuance stage, it structures allocation and impact data by project category, by country and at bond level.

Users can either access the data through the online platform, which offers advanced analytics and research features, or receive the structured data via a data feed.

The data offers solutions for:

  • Environmental impact analysis and insight
  • Investment decisions and portfolio insight
  • Reporting: EU Regulations
  • Reporting: Impact
  • Reporting: UN SDGs
  • Social impact analysis and insight
  • Sustainable bond allocation
  • Impact
  • KPIs
  • SPTs

Where and how do you source your data?

New self-labelled sustainable bonds are identified through a variety of sources. To ensure the integrity of the LGX DataHub, LGX experts analyse and confirm the Green, Social, Sustainability or Sustainability-Linked attributes of every new issuance.

LGX gathers all the relevant documentation publicly available on the issuers’ websites and extracts data from these documents. New issuances are integrated in the LGX DataHub every two weeks, after all critical data points are controlled by the LGX.

A similar process is in place to ensure the most up-to-date post-issuance data. LGX monitors the publication of allocation and impact reports, and new post-issuance data is added to the platform on a monthly basis.

What are the key attributes that differentiates the data you offer?

Today, sustainability data points are often made available in different, incompatible formats and spread over multiple sources. Investors and asset managers need sustainability data to build sustainable investment strategies, but identifying, extracting and structuring this data is a tedious and time-consuming exercise. This is what led the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE), home to the Luxembourg Green Exchange (LGX), to create a centralised data hub of structured sustainability data with a remarkable level of granularity.

Built and managed by the Luxembourg Green Exchange (LGX) – the sustainable finance team at LuxSE – the LGX DataHub is a unique database offering structured sustainability data on more than 7,000 of the world’s listed green, social, sustainability and sustainability-linked (GSSS) bonds.

Apart from offering close to full coverage of the world’s listed GSSS bonds, the LGX DataHub brings users the most granular data in the market in a structured form. It allows users to search for individual bonds, find group bonds based on search criteria, upload a portfolio and run analytics or export the data on selected bonds in a customised way.

The LGX DataHub brings previously unstructured data into a completely new and structured light, enhancing the value of reliable and comparable sustainability data in investment decisions. The resulting solution allows investors, asset managers and researchers to find eligible investments, track market activity, benchmark investments on impact and aggregate impact and allocation reporting on the portfolio level.

The LGX DataHub is a tool that helps investors and asset managers understand and compare the environmental and social impact of different securities and make more informed and sustainable investment decisions. It also provides investors and asset managers with the data they need to report on the impact of specific investments.
