ESG M&A: Landmark Information Acquires ESG Due Diligence Platform RiskHorizon
UK-based property market information provider Landmark Information announced that it has acquired the RiskHorizon ESG due diligence platform from global sustainability consultancy Anthesis Group.
RiskHorizon has been designed to deliver valuable global insights to a broad group of asset owners and managers, from private equity and investment houses to corporates and their lawyers. The platform helps legal advisors, investors, finance professionals and deal makers to identify the material ESG risks and opportunities at an early stage of the deal cycle, providing a comprehensive and actionable ESG due diligence screen of corporate acquisitions and investments. It also enables the effective management of ESG within existing businesses, newly acquired assets and supply chains.
Chris Loaring, Managing Director (Legal) for Landmark Information said:
“The RiskHorizon platform enables us to expand our portfolio of data-led due diligence services to the legal, investment and financial sectors, by providing a global environmental social and governance screening and portfolio management tool that can better determine the future financial performance of companies, as well as manage portfolios, by sector or geography.”
Tim Clare, Director of Anthesis Group said:
“Landmark Information Group is an established and reputable data and technology-driven business and we look forward to seeing how Landmark will further evolve the RiskHorizon platform to support the market’s growing needs for ESG data and management tools. We’ll continue to work in partnership with Landmark Information, providing expertise and guidance to support the development of RiskHorizon. ”
