BNP Paribas launches ESG tool

BNP Paribas Securities Services has launched an environmental, social and governance (ESG) risk analytics tool for institutional investors.


Institutional clients of BNP Paribas Securities Services will soon be able to rate their investments against a range of ESG factors.

ESG Risk Analytics will allow investors to assess their portfolios against 750 data points such as carbon emissions, energy usage, human rights and board diversity.

BNP Paribas Securities Services general manager Patrick Colle said ESG is rapidly becoming an "essential part of the investment decision-making process for investors".

"However, putting an ESG-aware investment strategy into practice can prove difficult, with data gathering and analysis presenting some of the most testing challenges," he said.

"Managing this data, analysing it and presenting it in a clear, concise and easily digestible way is the core of what the ESG Risk Analytics solution provides for clients.

"With this new solution, we aim to help institutional investors overcome obstacles and incorporate ESG into their everyday investment decisions," Mr Colle said.
