Highlights and insights:
“As investors seek out more information about the sustainable credentials of companies, ESG data and research providers are playing a greater role. Just 7% of global investors say they don’t use any data and research providers — compared to three in 10 (29%) two to three years ago.
The thirst for knowledge and information is also seeing investors increasingly rely on multiple providers. More than half (53%) of investors now use two to five providers compared to less than a quarter (22%) of investors two to three years ago. This multiple-provider strategy is set to become more entrenched, with the proportion who use at least six providers expected to more than double over the next two to three years, from 11% to 28%.”
