Controversial Product Involvement screening identifies companies involved in a range of products, services or activities that investors typically look to avoid , including tobacco, animal testing, pesticides, small arms, predatory lending and more. Investors can use this research to align investment universes to client mandates and regulatory requirements.

Controversial Weapons Radar provides research on companies’ involvement in weapons, such as cluster munitions and nuclear weapons. Arms Trade Research provides information on public companies selling arms to sanctioned countries or countries where there is a high risk of violence against civilians.

Leveraging smart technologies, we monitor more than 60,000 media sources on a daily basis to identify ESG-related incidents.

New Draft Disclosure Rules Change Timelines and Scope of EU Taxonomy
In recent months, a lot has been said and written about the EU Taxonomy, the green classification system of economic activities that aims to drive capital flows to sustainable investments supporting the EU’s policy goals on climate and the environment. Political, corporate, and civil society lobbying reached its peak when the EU published draft rules last December, which deviated substantially from expert recommendations.
