S&P Global ESG Scores and Trucost Data

S&P’s ESG and Trucost data provides a mix of scores, indicating how well a company does in a given dimension, and data measuring environmental impact for over 16,800 companies. The database is divided into three parts:

  • ESG Scores contain criteria (most granular), dimension, and global ESG (most aggregated) scores. Examples include supply chain management, eco-efficiency (criteria scores), and environmental & governance (dimension scores).
  • Trucost Environmental Data reflects the actual amounts of resources used by companies. Greenhouse gases (GHG) are measured in metric tons of C02 equivalent, water in cubic meters, electricity in gigawatts, etc. Usage is reported by scope.
  • Trucost Climate Analytics Analytics features company-level analysis to assess exposure to seven climate-change physical risk indicators

This data is exclusively available via Wharton Research Data Services (WRDS). A more in-depth overview of the S&P Global ESG Scores and Trucost Data is available here. (You must log in to WRDS to access this site.)
