ESG Regulatory Data

ESG Regulatory Data

Fulfill your ESG disclosure obligations easily and transparently.

Overview

Achieve Compliance with the EU Action Plan on Sustainable Finance

With the EU Action Plan on Sustainable Finance, the EU is taking a leading role in fighting climate change and addressing social issues by developing regulations – SFDR and EU Taxonomy – to finance sustainable growth. The aim is to reorient capital flows towards sustainable investments, to manage financial risks stemming from climate change, environmental degradation and social issues and to foster transparency.

At SIX we support our clients in achieving regulatory compliance by sourcing and providing high quality ESG Regulatory Data sets to enable them to easily comply with the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and the EU Taxonomy.

How You Will Benefit

High-Quality ESG Regulatory Data from SIX

Under SFDR and the EU Taxonomy Regulation (TR), financial services firms are required to disclose specific information on their approaches to the integration of sustainability risks and the consideration of adverse sustainability impacts of their investments. These regulations concern financial market participants in Europe and beyond, resulting in more transparent disclosure of sustainability metrics and a need for high-quality data in the back, middle and front office of financial services firms. SIX has well-established expertise and an excellent reputation for implementing regulatory data within given timeframes, e.g. MiFID II and PRIIP. 

Financial institutions can benefit from the EU ESG regulations by turning the regulatory requirements into a competitive advantage by fulfilling customer demands in a changing market environment.

About This Service

Currently, we are offering ESG Regulatory Data for the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and for Taxonomy Regulation (TR). Learn more in the section below.

Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)

While it is mandatory for manufacturers of financial products and investment firms to disclose relevant ESG factors, issuers of equity and debt instruments (‘investee companies’) are not obligated to do so under SFDR, resulting in missing data, lack of granularity and having to source ESG data from a wide range of providers and issuers. SIX sources the required data and maps it to the respective companies as well as to the underlying ISINs (if appropriate), while also leveraging already existing regulatory offerings and our well known high quality reference data. 

With our service for SFDR-related data, manufacturers of financial products and investment firms can rely on complete, clean, enriched, high quality data  that can be used in the back, middle and front office of financial services firms and for easy and accurate disclosure.

Taxonomy Regulation (TR)

As part of the EU Action Plan on Sustainable Finance, the EU Taxonomy Regulation aims to define and standardize criteria for identifying companies’ sustainable activities, requiring financial institutions in the EU to disclose specific sustainability metrics of their economic activities. At SIX, we are currently working on providing a new high quality EU Taxonomy data set,  which includes information from large and listed companies and manufacturers of financial products, so that  you can accomplish your regulatory disclosure obligations with ease.
