Online ESG Data Platform

What data do you provide?

EBoard is an interactive online platform that provides comprehensive company data and portfolio analytics on carbon, water, waste and broader natural resource dependencies. Users can screen companies against various criteria to determine best and worst in class performers, identify targets for engagement, calculate portfolio exposure to carbon, climate and water risk amongst other factors, and report to stakeholders in line with globally recognised initiatives such as the Taskforce for Climate-related Financial Disclosures. Quantification of environmental damage costs enables investors to make integrated business decisions supported by our strategic and technical guidance. 

Where and how do you source your data?

The company-disclosed, non-modelled data used by Trucost comes from a variety of publically disclosed sources such as company financial reports (Annual Reports, Financial Statements, 10-K/20- F reports, SEC/regulatory filings) and environmental data sources (CSR, Sustainability or Environmental Reports, the CDP, EPA filings), in addition to data published on company websites or other public sources. Trucost also provides each company the opportunity to share data directly via its direct engagement and data verification process. Trucost’s robust estimation model and methodology for large-, mid- and small-cap companies enables the gaps to be filled where disclosure is unavailable.

Who are the data users?

Trucost’s data is used by numerous market segments including asset managers, assets owners, banks, insurers, academics and corporates.

What is the cost for your data offering?

Pricing varies depending on the universe and scope of environmental data.
