The number of institutional investors focused on impact investing is increasing the demand for data to help them measure the environmental, social and governance factors (ESG). The overall availability and quality of ESG data have grown in recent years and ESG investing has gathered significant momentum, following the Paris Agreement on climate, the publication of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
In 2018, more than $30 trillion was invested in ESG assets. A 34% increase compared to 2016, according to a report by the Global Sustainable Investing Alliance.
