Evaluate CSRHub data on FactSet's cloud-based Data Evaluation Platform
CSRHub is pleased to offer ESG Business Intelligence data via the Open:FactSet Marketplace. CSRHub is also available for evaluation via FactSet’s cloud-based data evaluation platform, Data Exploration.
CSRHub data helps investors, corporations, and consumers integrate ESG and sustainability into their decision-making processes. Using a patented algorithm that aggregates and harmonizes disparate data from over 650+ ESG sources, CSRHub generates a consensus score for the ESG performance of more than 18,000+ companies from 134 industries in 141 countries. Data from CSRHub’s big data process can be used to increase corporate market value, uncover portfolio opportunities and risks, and integrate ESG trends into other Business Intelligence data sets. For instance, CSRHub’s ESG signal can:
- Identify risks and opportunities. CSRHub ratings represent the consensus opinion of a company’s ESG performance. Asset owners, portfolio managers, and investment analysts can compare their own assessment of a company against the CSRHub consensus and build alpha-creating strategies. CSRHub’s score is also used for screening potential investments and for examining the social impact of an existing portfolio.
- Benchmark corporate ESG performance. Companies can compare their CSRHub rating to those of their peers or competitors using CSRHub’s broad industry and geographic coverage. Through these comparisons, managers can build strategies to improve upon existing practices, plan new sustainability-related programs and reporting, better manage their stakeholders’ perception of corporate values and social impact, and evaluate their brand’s CSR performance.
- Backtest theories about ESG behavior. CSRHub offers monthly data back to 2008. Because CSRHub ratings are based on millions of data items drawn from hundreds of sources, they are stable, fit into a smooth distribution, and correlate well with other indicators. CSRHub ratings are used by hundreds of universities and have been cited in many publications.
CSRHub co-founders Cynthia Figge CEO and Bahar Gidwani CTO gave a webcast presentation Integrating ESG Consensus Ratings to Create Actionable Signals Business Intelligence in partnership with FactSet.
