ESG Book, a global leader in sustainability data and technology, has partnered with the Sustainable Finance Institute Asia (SFIA) for a pilot initiative to address ESG data requirements and disclosure gaps in Asian markets, it has been announced.
Recognising the capabilities of ESG Book, SFIA has identified ESG Book as one of its potential technology partners for the Single Accesspoint for ESG Data (SAFE) Initiative, which brings together key industry stakeholders to enable sustainable finance across Asian markets through accessible, comparable, and transparent ESG data.
With financial institutions increasingly required to collect sustainability-related data from corporations to meet growing regulatory demands, the SAFE Initiative has been launched to help address data and disclosure gaps by providing credible, comprehensive, and consistent information for better and more informed ESG decision-making.
Leading financial organisations across Asia are invited to participate in the scheme, which is being supported by ESG Book’s market-leading technology.
As the world’s largest sustainability disclosure platform, ESG Book’s real-time, cloud-native technology directly connects corporates with financial institutions.
Built on Google Cloud infrastructure, ESG Book’s platform hosts over 10,000 users globally, and enables companies to disclose ESG data directly to stakeholders in a digitised, secure, and centralised way.
With an agile data model based on the latest industry requirements, ESG Book’s SaaS-based solution enables SAFE participants to benefit from:
- Seamless, intuitive, and digitised disclosure workflows.
- Full ESG data ownership, control, and privacy with permissions functionalities.
- The ability to disclose once and share publicly or privately with multiple financial institutions, materially reducing a company’s reporting burden.
- Pre-populated disclosure ESG data based on publicly available information.
- Continuous compatibility with the leading global disclosure requirements, including the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) standards.
Dr Daniel Klier, CEO of ESG Book, said: “We are delighted that ESG Book is partnering with SFIA on its SAFE pilot Initiative to help address current ESG data requirements and disclosure gaps in Asian markets. With our mission to power financial markets for a sustainable future through accessible, comparable, and transparent data, we are fully aligned with the SFIA’s vision to help shape the future of ESG data through a collaborative approach.”
“Through this vital initiative, we look forward to delivering our next generation ESG technology solutions for SAFE pilot participants, and working with the SFIA to enhance the ESG data landscape across Asian markets.”
With 150,000 disclosures, ESG Book’s platform provides pre-populated data and analytics on public securities, as well as the ability to directly request ESG disclosures from private companies, combining public market ESG information with privately collected data.
