We celebrate our latest milestone. We have now processed more than 900 sources of ESG data.
Our fifteen years of work have resulted in a database containing 600 million ESG data on more than 50,000 entities. This dataset supports our mission to use consensus assessments of companies’ ESG performance as leverage to improve corporate sustainability.
Our reach now extends to 156 countries. Of the 53,427 entities for which we publish data, 32,648 have been rated and 20,779 entities have been fully rated. For the entities for which we have full or partial ratings, we are now at 9.54 rating sources per entity!
Our coverage has expanded and the quality of our reviews has improved through the continued integration of new data sources. Over the past three years we’ve added 97 new resources. They contain:
CDP, a global non-profit organization, manages the world’s environmental information system for entities such as companies, cities and regions. They recently licensed their data to CSRHub for inclusion in our ESG ratings. This data includes participation in CDP’s environmental measurement systems, some of which include CDP’s carbon measurement, water, timber, livestock products or palm oil systems. CDP is respected worldwide for its impact measurement approach and serves as a direct resource for businesses, nonprofits and government groups to access support for their initiatives.
GaiaLens, a fintech platform, integrates ESG information from both structured and unstructured sources. GaiaLens produces real-time ESG signals on 17,000 listed companies to support investment decision-making. The data complements and helps complete CSRHub’s consensus ESG performance signal, which is used by corporate managers, investors, consultants and researchers.
Integrum ESG, which has been committed to total transparency with its ESG ratings from the start. The data points of each assessment are linked to underlying data from business intelligence or information collected using a natural language processing (NLP) system. The company views this transparent approach as a ‘glass box’, which allows a glimpse into the scores and the opportunity to examine all underlying raw data yourself.
InvestVerte, a unique source of ESG ratings that differentiates itself by targeting investors looking to improve their investment returns through ESG data. Unlike many investors who use ESG data primarily for regulatory compliance or marketing, InvestVerte focuses on those interested in using ESG signals to drive buying/selling decisions. The differentiating aspect of InvestVerte is its approach to analyzing ESG data. It uses machine learning to search various sources for ESG-related information and improves results for investment purposes using validation tools, robustness checking algorithms and AI techniques.
Lequity Group collects, organizes, and analyzes data from the thousands of federal, state, and local courts and regulatory agencies across the United States. Merging data on legal issues requires Lequity to be able to communicate with and ingest data from disparate, dispersed and inconsistent legal systems. It uses this information to provide informative ESG data on the types, amounts, allegations and outcomes of lawsuits and regulatory actions brought against companies. The insights we received from Lequity build on our growing dataset of US legal issues.
Ratio Institute is an independent nonprofit organization committed to accelerating measurable sustainability and viability in food retail through expert collaboration, industry resources and practical tools. It works with food retailers, trade organizations and other partners to create enterprise-level sustainability solutions that reduce costs, optimize internal practices and improve overall performance. The Ratio Institute consistently evaluated 127 ESG criteria from both 62 public and 45 private entities in their “2022 ESG State of the Industry” report. This comprehensive analysis of the ESG performance of US supermarkets covered the 107 largest supermarket chains in the US, giving us deeper insight into the sector.
Our comprehensive set of 900+ strong, stable and accurate entities includes Big Data aggregation from legacy data sources, including Brand financing, Covalence, ESG book, GEMMAQ, Ideal reviews, ISS ESG, Moodys, MSCI, S&P Global, SIG WATCH. We have more than 15 years of credible data history and consensus ratings that support companies, investors and stakeholders in making informed decisions and driving positive change within organizations. You can search these resources using our advanced search function.
Notice that both total and net sources have steadily increased since 2009
It’s important to note that our milestone of 900 sources is only part of our evolution. CSRHub is working hard on consistent source management. Due to our data growth, many older sources naturally become outdated over time. As we add newer sources to our network and maintain sources that continue to report data, older data sources are being phased out to maintain the currency, credibility and relevance of the data and assessments we provide. You can see our growth in both total resources and net resources in the chart above.
We are extremely proud of this progress and are grateful for your continued support. We look forward to what the future holds as we continue to expand our data coverage and tools.
