Nasdaq launches ESG Data Hub to connect investors with ESG experts

Nasdaq, a global technology company serving the capital markets and other industries, has announced the launch of ESG Data Hub, the latest in Nasdaq’s growing suite of products built to support investors in their sustainable investment decisions.

The new platform connects investors with expert led ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) data sets from leading providers across a broad spectrum of areas, including carbon emissions, gender diversity, and climate risk, providing detailed and tangible intelligence on companies’ ESG profiles.

“This launch reflects a growing interest in ESG data from investors. We are very proud to partner with Nasdaq and provide reliable gender equality data on their new platform. We know for a fact that companies with a more diverse leadership perform better and are more sustainable. Equileap’s gender diversity data helps investors make a difference and a return,” said Diana van Maasdijk, CEO at Equileap. 

Through ESG Data Hub, investors are provided with seamless, consolidated access to information through a single interface. To support transparency and global comparability, all data available in the platform is connected to Sustainable Development Goals set out by the United Nations. The firm has worked with industry leaders within a wide range of categories across the ESG scope to optimise data quality.

The platform has data from the following partner: Equileap (Gender equality), RepRisk (Reputational risk), Munich Re (Climate risk), Inrate (Carbon emissions), Ecogain (Biodiversity), Upright Project (Net impact) and Clean Tech (Renewable technology). Nasdaq plans to include additional data partners continuously. Additionally, Nasdaq’s proprietary data service Nasdaq Sustainable Bond Network will be available through ESG Data Hub.

“Nasdaq ESG Data Hub responds to the growing demand for more specialized and high-quality data, helping investors to make more intelligent and well-founded investment decisions. Together with our clients and data partners globally, I look forward to continuing building ESG Data Hub, the latest addition to Nasdaq’s growing suite of products and services supporting sustainable and inclusive capitalism,” said James McKeone, VP, Head of European Data at Nasdaq.
