Bloomberg ESG Function for Sustainability Investors adds RobecoSAM Data

September 29, 2016

RobecoSAM Scores on ESG

Bloomberg Professional service – ESG <GO>

Bloomberg recently expanded its offering of ESG (environmental, social, governance) data byincorporating information from RobecoSAM’s percentile rankings on the Bloomberg Professional service at ESG<GO>.

ESG<GO> is a Bloomberg Terminal function that provides sustainability investors with data about a company’s environmental, social and governance metrics, such as greenhouse gas emissions intensity, resource consumption and workplace diversity. The function provides an overview of a company’s support of sustainability initiatives and ranks its performance to industry peers.

RobecoSAM is an investment specialist focused exclusively on Sustainability Investing (SI). The percentile rankings of nearly 2000 companies are available at ESG<GO> but will be incorporated into other Bloomberg Professional investment tools on the Bloomberg Professional service in the near-term.

Barbara Pomfret, ESG Product Manager says that by incorporating RobecoSAM’s rankings data onto the Bloomberg Terminal “Bloomberg is supporting investors who see potential in companies that care as much for environmental, social, governance priorities as profit and growth.”

She adds “RobecoSAM’s ranking on the Bloomberg Terminal will help financial professionals consider relevant ESG data into their decision-making. This provides users with greater transparency around a company’s ESG performance.”
