ESG disclosure management & processing support

Financial institutions and corporates alike are becoming subject to an ever growing array of disclosure regulations, standards and guidance. SFDR, NFRD, CSRD, PBAF, PCAF, CDSB, ISSB, TCFD, SBTN, TNFD - the alphabet soup of emerging standards can be intimidating and the underlying data capture, measurement and reporting requirements a challenge for sustainability teams. Fortunately we are well versed in all leading ESG data frameworks and standards and can help automate data collection, assessment and disclosure using cutting edge AI, IoT and other technologies.

Taxonomy alignment

Asset managers and capital markets are increasingly aligning with voluntary and regulatory mandated green taxonomies such as the EU Taxonomy, ASEAN taxonomy, Climate Bonds in order to reduce risk, produce regulatory disclosures and increase revenue potential through fund labelling such as SDR and SFDR article 8 / 9 funds. Similarly Banking groups are also increasingly required to disclose Green Asset Ratios (GAR) and other green capital ratios such as Banking book Taxonomy Alignment Ratio (BTAR) which requires an increasing amount of data. With over 30 global taxonomies in motion and even more labelling standards measuring the degree of alignment requires a significant volume of data including industry sector data, revenues, activity data and policy data to test the degree to which portfolio companies comply with technical screening, Do No Significant Harm (DNSH) and Significant Contribution (SC).

Materiality & accounting standards

Regulations are increasingly focusing on materiality as a concept by providing frameworks and guidance for identifying and disclosing material risks, impacts and dependencies. Whilst many regulations are rooted in single materiality many disclosing companies, lenders and investors are increasingly looking beyond this to measure 'double materiality'. Making sense of the differing guidance available under ISSB S1 / S2, GRI, IFRS, SBTN, EFRAG and contrasting this with empirical approaches using Big Data techniques such as news analysis can be challenging. Fortunately we have developed a suite of tools and datasets to help investors, lenders and corporates identify material issues, measure and monitor these issues and to efficiently perform disclosure and analysis.

Due diligence compliance

ESG risks, environmental crimes and strategic litigation risks are fast emerging as a challenging new frontier for AML and KYC professionals. However whilst conventional financial, conduct and governance risk flags are often readily available controversy data, environmental risks and violations can be harder to source and process. We provide data products, systems integration services and bespoke software development to help Banks and others integrate ESG data into existing, well established KYC and AML processes. Our approach covers a wide range of data including news data, supply chain relationships, connected companies, materials, disclosures and many other types of data.

Fund & security labelling

There are now a wide array of green labels for funds, loans and bonds such as LuxFlag, SFDR, SDR, Climate Bonds Standard (CBS) and the EU Green Bond Standard (EU GBS). Structuring instruments to comply with these labels requires robust ESG data acquisition, governance, management, processing and ongoing monitoring capabilities which we are experienced in implementing. Whether it is assistance identifying data sources for structuring new products, development of monitoring systems for verification, covenant monitoring and coupon step up / down calculation or other data aspects of green product structuring we can help.

Memberships, certifications & commitments

Increasingly certifications and voluntary membership organisations within the sustainable finance space such as CERES, UNPRI, UNGC and FTSE4Good require signatories to demonstrate ESG data management, analysis and disclosure capabilities as part of annual disclosure cycles and other reporting. Similarly with financial greenwashing rules elevating the importance of credible ESG investment policies it is also important to ensure effective ESG data management, monitoring and reporting capabilities are in place. We can help you achieve best-in-class performance in the data aspects in your ESG framework.
