ESG risk and impact assessment: a hybrid, AI-enhanced approach to the data challenge
Greenwashing remains the bugbear for investors monitoring ESG performance. Corporate reporting is so uneven, in the absence of internationally agreed ESG standards, that it is difficult for investors to rely only on company-disclosed data.
Scope ESG and Sentifi both offer alternative approaches by relying on non-corporate data to measure sustainability.
Scope uses macro-economic data to approximate corporate ESG impacts including those of a company’s entire upstream supply chain. Scope calculates the costs of the ESG impacts so they can be easily compared by country, sector and with each other, providing ESG scores using proprietary methodology.
Sentifi captures shifts in ESG performance by analysing alternative sources of content in real time – such as news, blogs and tweets – to provide ESG scores synthesized by AI models.
Find out how Scope and Sentifi can provide an invaluable hybrid addition to investors’ ESG toolkit by signing up for the 29th June webinar.
How ESG Metrics Work And Why All Investors Should Care
“The Conscious Investor” is presented by Nuveen.
Martin Kremenstein, head of retirement and ETF solutions at Nuveen, explains how ESG metrics serve as an indicator of quality and can be used as a risk management tool.
According to research from MSCI, companies in the bottom ESG quintile have been twice as likely to suffer a catastrophic loss (over 95% cumulative loss) within three years.
MSCI downgraded Equifax to the lowest ESG rating on cybersecurity concerns a year before the data breach was announced.
Kremenstein says that Facebook was excluded from Nuveen’s NuShares ESG Large-Cap Growth ETF from the time it launched in December 2016. He explains, “it scored relatively poorly, compared to other tech companies over data privacy concerns.”
