ESG data science company RepRisk announced today that it has joined AWS Data Exchange, making its data feed available on the cloud-based platform. According to RepRisk, the inclusion of RepRisk data in AWS Data Exchange, will provide data analysts, portfolio managers, and quantitative investors streamlined access to relevant, daily-updated information on ESG and business conduct risks for financial decision-making.
RepRisk uses a combination of machine learning and human intelligence to offer quantitative risk analytics and proprietary metrics for more than 160,000 public and private companies, covering every global sector and market. The RepRisk ESG data covers a broad range of issues, including human rights, labor practices, corruption and the environment, and serves leading financial institutions and corporates in their due diligence and risk management processes across their operations, business relationships, and investments.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) established AWS Data Exchange in 2019, aiming to provide a service that makes it easy for millions of AWS customers to securely find, subscribe to, and use third-party data in the cloud.
Alexandra Mihailescu Cichon, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at RepRisk, said:
“We are thrilled to be working with AWS and are proud to be one of the first ESG data providers on AWS Data Exchange. RepRisk is committed to providing transparency. Our dataset serves as a reality check for how companies conduct their business around the world – do they walk their talk when it comes to human rights, labor standards, corruption, and environmental issues? Joining AWS Data Exchange, a service that enables the discovery and procurement of third party data sets, is a significant milestone in that work – and we are proud to be making in-roads for ESG in the alternative data landscape.”
