We got access to ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) data from Asset4 in Datastream. ASSET4 ESG data provides over 1000 data items, about Health & Safety, Emission Reduction, Shareholders Rights etc. on over 3500 companies worldwide.
In Datastream Extranet you can find the ASSET4 ESG Data Glossary, with descriptions of the items, and the Constituent lists. These lists allow you to quickly find the companies covered – for example if you want to have ASSET4 data for companies from the Netherlands, you can use the list ‘LA4CTYNL’; if you need the list of companies in the oil/gas industry, you can use the list ‘LA43GLOG’.
Assets4 data is also available through Bloomberg.
