ESG Book has announced a strategic partnership with Manaos, a subsidiary of BNP Paribas and a modular investment services platform. The collaboration aims to simplify how institutional investors centralise portfolio data, connect ESG information, and report on the sustainability of their investments.
The partnership between ESG Book and Manaos comes at a time of growing market demand for high-quality, granular ESG and climate data. Increasing sustainability regulations worldwide are driving this demand.
According to a 2023 Bloomberg survey, more than 90 per cent of executives expect to significantly increase their spending this year on ESG data. Most respondents believe that investing in ESG data is necessary to keep pace with competitors or gain a competitive advantage.
Through this integration, Manaos’ clients gain access to a range of sustainability insights for security selection, analytics, regulatory compliance and client reporting. ESG Book’s comprehensive data suite, covering over 50,000 companies globally, including performance scores, raw attributes, SFDR data as well as emissions datasets, will be integrated with Manaos’ cloud-based platform.
This integration also helps institutional investors make investment decisions from a centralised and unified source.
“ESG Book’s exceptional data quality, extensive coverage and esteemed reputation within the industry constitutes a pivotal element to our aspirations to establish Manaos as the premier ESG data marketplace in Europe,” said Franck Delbes, CEO of Manaos.
While Dr Daniel Klier, CEO of ESG Book, also commented: “Driven by fast-changing market requirements and global regulation, demand for accessible, transparent ESG data is increasing worldwide. By combining Manaos’ industry-leading investment software with ESG Book’s next generation data, we are arming investors with a powerful toolkit to manage and navigate the increasing complexities of sustainable investing.”
