No Need to Argue: Making Sense of ESG Data Sources

Document Type



Collection Development and Management


There has been a wave of developments in environmental, social, & governance (ESG) reporting and standards, with climate and sustainability thrown into the mix. There is so much unpacking to do in this session as we focus on informing our academic researchers on making sense of ESG data sources. This panel discussion will help you see beyond the smoke, and focus on what’s available for researchers on ESG, including data sources covering private companies, and companies from non-Western countries. Ideally, researchers should be able to disaggregate ratings and decide their weighting on indicators as companies shift towards publicly disclosing such data.
