Solve the ESG Data Challenge

Forming a comprehensive view of a company’s sustainability profile is a genuine challenge. Sustainability data mostly comes in unstructured formats that are difficult to consume systematically, which makes the relevant sustainability signals often go unnoticed by practitioners. As investors are increasingly relying on data-driven processes to achieve scale and efficiency across ESG applications, addressing the data challenge is more than ever the foundational step of any long-standing ESG strategy. As a leading alternative data provider, RavenPack can help.


Coverage At Scale

The RavenPack data benefits from local and global newswire coverage, which gives investors the opportunity to identify companies involved in controversial events reported in local news outlets before the information reaches the mainstream media.

The news data can also be used to screen companies reported as exposed to specific business areas, like fossil fuel energies or controversial weapons.

RavenPack’s decades-long news archive and global coverage provides investors with the ability to derive insights from a unique source of sustainability signals.

Coverage at Scale

A Fitting Data Solution

Among alternative datasets, news data is an exceptionally rich source of information. News data can be consumed in real time and help investors identify new sources of risks as they emerge.

The RavenPack event classification covers numerous topics across companies and global macroeconomic entities, including business, economic, political, societal and environmental events.

The event classification has expanded to capture a range of granular sustainability themes and events, such as the creation of a net-zero emissions target or a reported increase in GHG emissions.

A Targeted Solution

Alpha-generative ESG

The inclusion in portfolios of companies with positive societal impact provides greater downside protection to investors, which makes more investment sense. In a recent case study, RavenPack tested the claim made by MSCI, a leading ESG-ratings provider, that higher-rated companies tended to outperform their lower-rated peers on a standalone basis. The results were qualitatively in agreement with the MSCI findings and support the hypothesis that ESG ratings positively contribute to performance.
