S&P Global Establishes Centralized Group for ESG and Sustainability Offerings
Sustainable1 launched as central source for sustainability intelligence from all S&P Global divisions
Leading credit ratings, benchmarks and analytics provider S&P Global announced today the launch of S&P Global Sustainable1, a new centralized group representing the company’s integrated sustainability offerings, encompassing its full product suite of benchmarking, analytics, evaluations, and indices. Sustainable1 is comprised of a dedicated team offering comprehensive views on sustainability, including key ESG and climate topics, and aims to provide customers with a 360-degree view to help achieve their sustainability goals.
Sustainable1 will serve as a single source for the ESG products, insights and solutions from all four S&P Global divisions, S&P Dow Jones Indices, S&P Global Market Intelligence, S&P Global Platts, and S&P Global Ratings. Across its businesses, S&P offers a wide variety of sustainability-focused offerings including the preeminent Dow Jones Sustainability Indices, ESG scores on thousands of companies, energy transition-related commodity pricing and news, and credit ratings incorporating ESG considerations, among others.
Along with the launch of its centralized ESG and sustainability group, the company is also establishing the S&P Global Sustainable1 Knowledge Hub, a new site bringing together insights and thought leadership from all of the S&P Global divisions, including the Sustainability1 group. The new Knowledge Hub is being launched with the release of “Path to net-zero riddled with potential pitfalls,” the first in a new series of research by Sustainable1, looking at the path to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. The new group also announced its inaugural conference, “Accelerating the Transition to Sustainability: A Journey Across the Global Value Chain,” to be held next month.
Martina Cheung, Head of S&P Global Sustainable1 and President of S&P Global Market Intelligence, said:
“The launch of S&P Global Sustainable1 signifies the critical intersection between sustainability and business performance, as well as our commitment to informing the sustainable growth strategies of our clients. With every index, rating, price assessment and analytical model, we recognize the responsibility to provide trusted data and insights that enable customers to make decisions with conviction.”
