“ESG is a growing concern for all companies, and these ESG-focused enhancements to Nexis Diligence support and streamline a more complete due diligence process that can significantly reduce risk,” said Danielle McCormick, Chief Product Officer, LexisNexis. “The new features offer our users a powerful tool to manage the increasing scrutiny on sustainability efforts, as well as the emerging regulatory demands for businesses to go beyond traditional risk assessments.”

ESG Ratings

Provided by CSRHub, Nexis Diligence’s new ESG ratings are determined through an analysis of 350 million data points, from a wide-ranging collection of sources. These include data from 20 of the premier socially responsible investment analysis firms, 800+ nongovernmental organizations, government agencies, news feeds, social networking groups, smaller for-profit organizations and publishers. Each rating is broken down by category and related sub-category, offering a more complete understanding of ESG performance. The resulting ratings are extensive and updated monthly, assessing the ESG performance of 99.5% of the Russell 3000 index and over 30,000 companies in Europe, Asia, North America, and the rest of the world.

ESG Custom News Searches

Nexis Diligence’s ESG Custom News feature complements CSRHub’s ESG ratings, allowing users to dive into the impact of a company’s sustainability efforts at a moment’s notice. The Custom News enhancement facilitates quick ESG research across LexisNexis’ global collection of 40,000+ premium and web news sources.

Each search begins with a set of predefined ESG search terms which can be customized to align with preferences or specific risk concerns. These searches offer not only a valuable snapshot of ESG performance but improved risk visibility and greater operational efficiency.
