Homepage / Sourcing ESG data in Workspace

Sourcing ESG data in Workspace


Are you looking for ESG data?  You may have already tried Bloomberg, but Workspace is also a really good place to look. The term ESG covers the environmental, social and governance data filed by companies.  Workspace provides access to 630+ standardized ESG data points and 70+ analytics for 15,000+ companies globally. Data goes as far back as 2002. More information on their ESG Scores methodology can be found here.

Accessing Workspace

Registered users of Workspace can access it here

Sourcing ESG data

Type ESG in the Workspace command bar to read the introductory page on Workspace ESG data. For ESG data on a particular company, type the company name in the Workspace command bar and, from the Company overview page, click on the ‘ESG’ tab.  Or you can type a company identifier, followed by a space and then ESG (e.g. LSEG ESG) into the command bar.

ESG statement view provides the ESG details for the individual company.

A comparison with the company’s industry peers can be found by selecting ESG Peer Analysis from the tabs. This can be downloaded to Excel or saved as a PDF document.

There is also a ESG Scoring Profile view which shows ESG scores alongside a pie chart containing a breakdown with the option to have a full chart shown.

Finally there is a SFDR view which provides all the mapping of Pie level indicators and relates the ESG data to the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulations standard.

    I would love to see such reporting and comparisons made available as fact sheets for SME’s to review larger businesses and their ESG agendas. ESG needs to not only be at the the corporate elite, but also pushed by grassroot business. If this data was more widely available and benchmarking discussed, I think it would stimulate such discussions.
