Glass Lewis Expands ESG Capabilities

Glass Lewis has announced a strategic partnership with Arabesque, a provider of ESG data and insights. The announcement states:

The partnership will see Arabesque provide company ESG profiles for Glass Lewis’ Proxy Paper research reports, enabling clients to gain the latest ESG data and insights on over 8,000 companies worldwide, and access to climate and regulatory data solutions. Using big data and a quantitative, algorithmic approach, Arabesque’s capabilities draw on more than four million ESG data points daily from over 30,000 sources for performance metrics on sustainability, including corporate net-zero alignment.

As a rationale for this partnership, Glass Lewis indicates that investor demand for ESG data is surging, with one third of all assets under management globally now integrating sustainability factors.
