Sustainable Investing Open Access Initiative

Our Sustainable Investing Open Access Initiative is disclosing our intellectual property – our proprietary SDG data. Through this initiative, we are offering free insights into individual SDG scores on corporate issuers and share our in-depth analysis across a range of country ESG data, resulting in a single country sustainability score.

Explore our data

Our Open Access tool scores the contributions companies make to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how countries and economies rank on environment, social and governance (ESG) criteria. In this way you can tell the ‘true’ level of sustainability of a stock or bond.

We launched the SI Open Access Initiative in August 2022, initially to allow clients and academics to use to the information contained in the groundbreaking Robeco SDG Framework.
