“The new service will enable international investors to better evaluate the ESG activities of Chinese companies and to make more informed investment decisions. At the same time, it strengthens Deutsche Börse’s position as a key player in ESG reporting.”

Deutsche Börse has expanded its data offering with ESG data from the Chinese market collected by the International Institute of Green Finance (IIGF), an independent and non-profit research institute based in Beijing that is supporting the development of green finance in the country.

As foreign investors grow increasingly concerned with ESG investment in Chinese firms, the IIGF data package comes as a godsent accessible via the Deutsche Börse Data Shop.

The IIGF package covers listed companies, bond issuers and mutual funds in the Chinese market, with data including ESG scores, ratings, and reviews of companies in China’s largest benchmark indices, the CSI 300 and CSI 800, as well as all listed companies.

The International Institute of Green Finance collects the data through an ESG evaluation methodology developed specifically for this emerging market and provides a range of reports and newsletters on the market environment in China.

ESG data, rating reports and bi-weekly reports from IIGF on Deutsche Börse

Alireza Dorfard, Head of Market Data + Services at Deutsche Börse, said: “Especially for emerging markets such as China, ESG data has so far often been very fragmentary and of insufficient quality. There are also language barriers, as many local listed companies usually only report in Chinese. The new service will enable international investors to better evaluate the ESG activities of Chinese companies and to make more informed investment decisions. At the same time, it strengthens Deutsche Börse’s position as a key player in ESG reporting.”

Professor Wang Yao, Director General of IIGF, commented: “China is an emerging market drawing global attention. As a leading think tank on green finance, IIGF has achieved outstanding research results in developing the ESG database and information services. By offering the ESG data, rating reports and bi-weekly reports from IIGF on Deutsche Börse’s data platform, we are helping to build a bridge for global investors to understand the Chinese market and to open China’s capital markets, which offer exceptional investment opportunities for global investors.”

Deutsche Börse Data Shop boasts more than 100 terabytes of historical data of the trading venues Eurex, Xetra and 360T, index data from STOXX and ESG data from IIGF.

The data universe includes highly accurate timestamps, a variety of tick and index data, complete historical order book and trading data for Eurex and Xetra as well as reference and turnover data.

The analytics portfolio rounds out the offering and enables clients to gain deep insight into liquidity, market concentration and market trends.
