Sourcing ESG data in Eikon
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.
Eikon can be accessed from off-campus via the VMWare Horizon Client. For more details, please see our blog post on accessing Eikon off campus.
Sourcing ESG data
Search for a company in the Eikon command bar and, from the Company overview page, click on the ‘ESG’ tab or select ‘Environmental, Social & Governance’ from the drop down menu.
ESG statement view provides the ESG details for the individual company. More information on the Refinitiv ESG Scores methodology can be found here.
A comparison with the company’s industry peers can be found by selecting Peer view from the dropdown options. This can be downloaded to Excel or saved as a PDF document.
ESG report view provides a good overview of the company’s current ESG performance. Within the report view there is also a peer summary of the company’s closest four peers and the industry with which they are aligned.
Finally there is ESG chart view which shows ESG scores alongside a pie chart containing a breakdown with the option to have a full chart shown:
A detailed explanation of the Refinitiv ESG methodology is available here.
