Moody's ESG Solutions Launches Data Solution to Help Investors Align Strategies with UN Sustainable Development Goals
Moody’s ESG Solutions today launched SDG Alignment Screening, a data solution that helps investors integrate the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into SDG-aligned investment strategies, funds, indices, and reporting. Adopted in 2015 as part of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the 17 SDGs are a call to action to spur economic growth, promote social inclusiveness, and improve environmental sustainability.
“With less than a decade left to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, investors have a key role to play in providing the necessary finance to help meet the SDGs, which requires them to be presented as simple metrics,” said Sabine Lochmann, Global Head of Moody’s ESG Measures. “Our SDG Alignment Screening provides high-quality data, helping investors leverage the SDGs both as part of risk management and reporting frameworks, and as a capital allocation guide.”
Moody’s new solution provides data for approximately 5,000 listed companies covering over 300 data points. The screening methodology adopts a dual materiality approach, capturing both the contributions that a company makes to the SDGs through its products and services, as well as a company’s impact on the SDGs through its management systems and stakeholder relations.
Earlier this month, Moody’s launched Global Compact Screening , which assesses companies against the standards of the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.
