Northern Trust adds key environmental data to ESG risk analytics
Northern Trust has announced it will include reporting for key environmental data in its environmental, social and governance (ESG) risk exposure analytics capabilities.
The inclusion will enable Northern Trust clients to drill down into specific environmental risk indicators for their investments, such as their carbon footprint. The enhancement will deliver a new ‘ESG Insights: Environment’ report to investors that will enable them to access a range of environmental analytics.
The information will help clients determine whether or not they are meeting sustainable investment goals and regulatory requirements.
“Environmental factors are the driver behind a number of initiatives requiring greater monitoring of material risks and increased disclosures," Serge Boccassini, product lead, Investment Accounting and Analytic Solutions at Northern Trust, said.
"Our enhanced capabilities support clients in both areas – and can help them more closely incorporate the ‘E’ of ‘ESG’ into their decision-making."
