ESG Data: Measuring the Immeasurable? – DTSQUARED Whitepaper

Abstract

At a time when Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues have been pushed to the forefront of people’s minds, it is important to understand what exactly ESG ratings are and how they can play a part in a company’s performance. This paper examines the relationship between a strong Data Management framework and improved ESG ratings.

Most industries and organisations now recognise the significance of both data and ESG as separate strategic assets, but considering how data management can be leveraged to optimise ESG ratings is crucial to the accuracy and advancement of ESG scores. There are common issues associated with the collection of ESG data, including aggregating data from multiple sources, a lack of common terminology and a rapidly growing ESG regulatory environment. A solid Data Management framework can help to combat these issues, in turn improving a company’s ability to not only better align themselves with ESG values, but also to profit through increased revenue generation, improved regulatory compliance and enhanced reporting capabilities.

This whitepaper explores ESG ratings in detail, including their significance and the evolving standards applied to them, as well as providing recommendations and solutions for realising the potential of ESG with data management at its heart.
