ESG data to inform your engagement
The Benchmark Report contains an indicator-level analysis of the ESG performance of your investments in both absolute terms and relative to peers. It is designed to identify areas of opportunity and risk in your portfolio and deepen your engagement with managers on sustainability issues.
Portfolio Analysis Tool
Using the Portfolio Analysis Tool, you can perform a portfolio analysis for self-selected groups of your investments, including applying weights and customized benchmarks. The tool provides insight into how each investment contributes to the portfolio’s aggregated ESG performance. It also provides a combined environmental footprint of the investment portfolio.
