The ESG Ratings tool relies on data from 250 corporate governane data points, combined with 750 social and environmental data points as well as 96 governance risk metrics and 65.000 individual director profiles. It also monitores ESG controverises and governance events on a daily basis.

Eric Moen, managing director and head of ESG, said: “As institutional investors increasingly integrate ESG factors into their investment processes, they are seeking a more comprehensive understanding of the ESG risks in their portfolios. With MSCI ESG Ratings we are proud to offer a combination of sophisticated environmental, social and governance analysis so that our clients can better evaluate their ESG risks.”
