Without concrete regulatory standards and frameworks for sustainability, industries would be left wondering how to unify their efforts and showcase their achievements in the eyes of investors. Likewise, new standards will help them encourage suppliers and customers to make suitable changes and report certain metrics that align their efforts.
S&P Global’s Sustainable1 is a solution devised from a number of products and insights to match supplier and customer data. The latest dataset released by S&P can be accessed via Xpressfeed and Snowflake, two of its data management systems.
Sustainable1’s Managing Director and Global Head of Research and Methodology Steven Bullock explains this further.
"Under MiFID II and SFDR, investment firms are required to take account of client sustainability preferences as well as to consider and report on sustainability performance. Investment Managers are seeking a comprehensive range of data to help meet the requirements under these regulations,” says Bullock.
“We have built the SFDR Sustainable Investment Framework so investors can access a range of high-quality data points and identify the sustainability profile of their investments while disclosing results in line with the requirements."
