Investors Can Now Compare ESG Scores on New ESGHub™ App

Responsible investing has been an overriding theme of the past two weeks, with a proliferation of new initiatives, campaigns and reports joining a growing list of recently released resources for sustainable and impact investors to increase the quality of their investments emerging during last week’s Global Climate Action Summit and this week at Climate Week. To add to the list, today CSRHub launched its ESGHubTM app on the Bloomberg App Portal at {APPS }. Bloomberg Terminal subscribers can now access the environmental, social and governance (ESG) disclosure and ratings performance of companies in portfolios, indexes or other financial instruments.

This ESGHub tool is introduced during a time of heightened demand by investors for more ESG reporting and transparency on material issues. To do this effectively, ESG factor analysis requires a simple, powerful and comprehensive set of data. ESGHub, in concert with Bloomberg, provides Terminal subscribers access to deeper insight and an opportunity to note ESG performance across specific companies.

The ESGHub app generates a scoring matrix to compare Bloomberg’s analysis of corporate sustainability performance with CSRHub’s data. CSRHub aggregates more than 5,000 indicators drawn from more than 500 sources of information on companies' ESG performance, and analyzes twelve factors such as diversity and labor rights, leadership ethics, energy and climate change, training health and safety, and transparency and reporting.

Mike King, Global Business Head for the Bloomberg App Portal said, "ESGHub's launch on the App Portal reinforces our commitment to building a diverse ecosystem of applications on the App Portal. We are continually looking to collaborate with companies like CSRHub in order to bring new, high-value applications that complement existing Terminal functionality for the Bloomberg Terminal subscriber base."

The Bloomberg App Portal gives Bloomberg Terminal subscribers access to a diverse library of financial tools, created by Bloomberg clients and third-party software developers from around the world. Applications are reviewed and selected for the Bloomberg App Portal based on a variety of parameters, including the application’s ability to complement and enhance existing features and information resources of the Bloomberg Terminal service. The ESGHub tool complements Bloomberg’s commitment to incorporate more financial data, analysis, news and other capabilities onto the Bloomberg Terminal service that support sustainable investment activities.

Bloomberg Terminal subscribers globally can find dozens of contributed applications on the Bloomberg App Portal at {APPS } for data visualization, financial analysis, charting, risk modeling and other workflows. CSRHub's ESGHub app is listed as ESGHub on the Bloomberg App Portal or can be accessed directly at {APPS ESGH }.
