Sustainable Finance Data

Sustainable Finance Data

A sharper focus on sustainability means institutions and finance professionals are looking beyond traditional analysis to assess risks and opportunities, and are factoring in environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into their decision-making.

ICE offers a range of cross asset sustainable finance data and tools that provide a comprehensive view of ESG issues across the market to help you uncover opportunities, manage risk, and provide transparency to your clients.

Key features

Security linkage
With experience in researching corporate structures though our ICE Business Entity Service, our data is linked to individual fixed income and equity securities using ICE’s corporate hierarchy entity data. This allows users to analyze data at the individual investment level.
Regulatory data
To aid in compliance with SFDR, we offer the SFDR Principle Adverse Impact (PAI) solution. Provided in conjunction with RepRisk, ICE offers continuously updated input values for mandatory corporate SFDR indicators and can provide optional indicators.
Quality data collection
Data is sourced and quality controlled through our dedicated team of reference data specialists. We aim to provide extensive and continuously updated coverage of multiple data sources.
Controversy data
To provide greater transparency into the risks of public companies, we offer controversy data from RepRisk, an ESG data science company. This risk-focused data set provides detailed metrics related to how a company manages its business, based on third-party, publicly available sources external to a company.

We provide access to the BofA ESG Meter™, a quantitative assessment, created by BofA Securities using ICE’s ESG Company Data, which rates a company’s ESG performance relative to its peer group.
