Big Data & Corporate Sustainability Performance: How the world is using ESG data

Each company, intentionally or otherwise, is telling a sustainability story to interested and influential stakeholders. Corporate websites, voluntary sustainability reports, annual financial reports, regulatory disclosures, and media stories are just some of the places where stakeholders glean corporate sustainability information.

A growing number of specialized research firms are gathering this data using some of the latest technologies and techniques, and then analyzing and disseminating this information to a growing number of customers. Customers include some of the world’s largest asset owners and asset management firms, as well as the world’s largest corporations, who are now using this data to assess and manage ESG risks in their own supply chains. Please join us for a special series of presentations from ESG data experts EcoVadis, Datamaran, and RepRisk.

EcoVadis: Hear from Pierre-François Thaler, Co-Founder and Co-President, and Daniel Perry, Senior Account Executive, on why some of the world’s largest companies are using ESG ratings to manage the non-financial risk and performance of their extensive supply chains. Learn how ESG ratings incentivize suppliers in a “race to the top” environment and create far-reaching impact for global sustainable procurement programs. –

Datamaran: Hear from Susanne Katus, VP Business Development, on how businesses are leveraging smart technology to identify the emerging strategic, regulatory and reputational risks that matter to them – in a systematic, objective and comparable way. Learn about how you can apply a data-driven approach to materiality and risk assessments using evidence-based insights into over 100 extra-financial issues.

RepRisk: Hear from Alexandra Mihailescu Cichon, Head of Sales and Marketing, on the compliance and reputational impacts of ESG risks and business conduct. Learn tools to mitigate these risks and impacts.

Webinar: Reporting on the SDGs: What Do Investors Need to Know? 

Join us for this important webinar.

This webinar will explore how companies can demonstrate to investors their commitments to the UN Sustainable Development Goals – and highlight what investors need to know. Investor demands for corporate transparency on the SDGs are on the rise. But while there is growing interest, there is little understanding of how to invest in these themes – and how companies can attract these investments.

What do investors really need to know, and how can companies effectively communicate this? Our expert panel will give their perspective on this topical issue and take questions from the audience.

Hear from:

  • Heike Reichelt – Head of Investor Relations and New Products at Capital Markets Department, World Bank
  • Martina Macpherson – Global Head of ESG Indices Product Management at S&P Dow Jones Indices
  • Nando van Kleefe – Senior Advisor Responsible Investment & Governance at MN
