Press Release: Style Expands ESG with Sustainalytics Carbon Risk Ratings

January 22, 2020

London, 23 January 2020 – Style Analytics, the provider of factor-based portfolio and market analytical tools for investment professionals, today announced it is expanding its ESG factor analysis tool with the launch of Carbon Risk Ratings and emissions data from Sustainalytics, a leading global provider of ESG research, ratings and data. With the Carbon Risk Ratings and emissions data, clients can analyze their portfolios’ exposure to carbon production, implement low-carbon mandates and manage carbon-related risks.

Asset managers and asset owners increasingly recognize the benefits of measuring, monitoring and reporting on their portfolio’s carbon footprint using metrics recommended by the Global Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). Leveraging Sustainalytics’ Carbon Risk Ratings and emissions data, investors can better understand the carbon risks in their portfolios. The Carbon Risk Ratings and emissions data is available alongside Style Analytics’ ESG and factor Style Skyline™, providing one fully integrated platform for portfolio ESG, carbon and factor analysis.

As signatories to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), both Style Analytics and Sustainalytics are committed to providing investors with cutting-edge tools to assess their ESG and carbon–related risks.

Sebastien Roussotte, CEO of Style Analytics, remarked: “Today’s investment environment requires sophisticated yet easy-to-use analysis of the potential climate–related risks of every portfolio. Our collaboration with Sustainalytics allows us to provide our clients with the tools they need to comply with ESG and carbon standards as part of our factor–based Style Skyline™.”

Bob Mann, President and Chief Operating Office of Sustainalytics, said: “We are pleased to expand our relationship with Style Analytics by incorporating our Carbon Risk Ratings and Data into their suite of products. The addition of these new products will enable our joint clients to measure and report on the carbon risk in their portfolios and fulfill environmental guidelines.”

Style Analytics’ products and services are designed to help institutional investors and investment managers determine which factor exposures impact portfolio risk and performance, including ESG. By using the unique Style Skyline™, industry professionals can better analyze markets, peers and portfolios.
