ESG Data : A mega trend with high operational challenges

  • ESG investing (Environmental, Social & Governance) has grown 10x from 2018-21. This growth combined with new regulatory requirements is fuelling huge demand for ESG Data.
  • Unlike Financial Data (mostly quantitative), the ESG Data is qualitative and narrative. Source data lying in company documents is more often than not “textual” when it comes to disclose data points like workplace health and safety, diversity in leadership, etc.
  • Because ESG Data is heterogeneous and qualitative in nature, it requires high level of human interaction to extract and analyse from documents. Most existing processes are not scalable.
  • Document Genome captures and aggregates exact narrative information across a mass of complex and heterogenous documents. Document Genome allows smart 360°consolidation of ESG text content from many documents to know “who”, “what” and “where” about anything.

“Due to their varying degrees of availability and the low level of standardisation, the issue of the quality of non-financial data collected is taking a central dimension”

BlackRock global alts head: “Quality of ESG data is a challenge”

“Organizations that can report on ESG effectively have a critical market opportunity compared to their competitors.”
