Societe Generale Securities Services (SGSS) has launched ESG Reporting, a new system aimed at measuring investment strategies’ impact on the environment and the society.
The new ESG reporting solution allows both institutional investors and asset managers to rate their investments against a broad set of Environment, Social and corporate Governance (ESG) indicators – including CO2 emissions, board composition, and executives’ salaries among others – using MSCI1 data and methodology.
Thanks to the new service, investors will be able to identify the best and the worst assets present in their portfolios and to adapt their strategies seeking to obtain more financial and societal returns.
Bruno Prigent, head of Societe Generale Securities Services, said: “Asset managers are not only concerned about financial goals such as yield, security and liquidity but also -and increasingly- about their impact on society. The new service we offer will help our clients to make the right investment decisions to maximize their positive impacts.”
ESG Reporting comes to strengthen the “Sustainable and Positive Impact Finance” offering, launched recently within the Group’s global banking and investor solutions activities.
