UNGC/OECD Frameworks adds to market-leading ESG data and analysis
LONDON - January 25, 2023 - 9fin, the leading provider of data and analysis to the leveraged finance market, has extended its ESG analysis with the addition of UNGC/OECD Compliance Frameworks. This analysis is published alongside every ESG QuickTake, a fast and focused summary of the ESG risks and opportunities for every new deal in the European HY market.
Failure to report violations of or a lack of process to monitor compliance with the United Nations Global Compact principles (UNGC) or Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises can constitute a failure to assess investments for Principle Adverse Impacts (PAIs). This is a requirement for all financial market participants under the EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR).
The United Nations Global Compact and OECD Guidelines are voluntary initiatives that encourage companies to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies.
In addition to publishing compliance with the frameworks for individual companies, 9fin’s ESG QuickTakes provide a more qualitative analysis of any violations. 9fin offers a complete suite of ESG analysis on leveraged finance companies including SFDR-aligned company data, instrument data, a fully-searchable database of source documents, educational content and regular updates on regulatory developments and trends.
Jack David, Senior ESG Analyst said: “There is huge demand for high quality ESG data and analysis in the increasingly complex world of ESG. We are delighted to work with our clients and help them navigate this fast-evolving field effectively.”
