Like Bloomberg, Eikon is a really good place to look for ESG data. The term ESG covers the environmental, social and governance data filed by companies.

Eikon provides access to 450+ standardized ESG data points and 70+ analytics for 10,000+ companies globally. Data goes as far back as 2002. More information can be found in Eikon’s ESG Scores factsheet. This detailed ESG report is available from within a company’s Overview page.
