London, 17 May 2024: We are excited to announce that our ESG Dashboard has won “Best ESG Data Initiative” at the Waters Technology Inside Market Data Awards, 2024. This is now the third award our ESG Dashboard has won in recent years.

As ESG’s importance grows, the number of ESG research and data providers is growing rapidly, making the market extremely dynamic, and for buy side institutions, challenging to stay on top of.  New entrants enter the ESG research market constantly and incumbent providers continually update their offerings – this coupled with consolidation in the market between providers mean it is more of a challenge than ever to discover the right ESG research and data providers and assess their value to institutions.   

The ESG Dashboard was created as a direct response to customer demand for clarity and guidance in this evolving market.  Today it is used by more than 100 firms with a combined AUM of $20 trillion. 

An industry first, the ESG Dashboard is a searchable database of more than 170 ESG data providers, mapping out the ESG data market. This allows firms to discover and compare suppliers of ESG data all in one convenient place, as well as providing confidence that they are gaining accurate views of actual ESG performance. 

Backed by unique data and meticulous analysis, the dashboard also shines a light on trends which impact the wider industry.

Mike Carrodus, CEO of Substantive Research, said: “We are delighted to announce the third award for our ESG Dashboard, which is proving invaluable in helping our clients to keep track of an ESG Data and Research market which is still evolving at an incredibly rapid rate.  I’d like to thank our brilliant team here at Substantive Research for their hard work in making the ESG Dashboard into what it is today, and I am immensely proud that their achievements have been recognised in such a prestigious awards process.”
