Nasdaq launches hub for sustainability data
The demand for sustainability data is on the rise. Nasdaq has launched its ESG Data Hub, to provide investors with consolidated sustainability information through a single interface. The Hub has partnered with several institutional investors and other data providers, to feed their data into the platform. Current partners include Munich Re (climate risk), Equileap (gender equality), Ecogain (biodiversity), RepRisk (reputational risk), Inrate (carbon emissions), Upright Project (net impact) and Clean Tech (renewable technology).
Detailed and tangible data on companies ESG profiles across themes such as gender diversity, carbon emissions and climate risk are available on this Hub, which is connected to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG). Nasdaq pointed out that additional data partners will be added continuously. Additionally, data from its proprietary data service, Nasdaq Sustainable Bond Network, will also be available to all investors, in Europe and globally.
