Deutsche Börse has expanded its data offering with Chinese market ESG data collected by the International Institute of Green Finance (IIGF), an independent, non-profit research institute based in Beijing that supports the development of green finance in the country.

As foreign investors grow increasingly concerned about ESG investments in Chinese companies, the IIGF data package is a boon accessible through the Deutsche Börse Data Shop.

The IIGF package covers listed companies, bond issuers and mutual funds in the Chinese market, with data including ESG scores, ratings and company assessments from China’s largest benchmark indices, the CSI 300 and the CSI 800, as well as all listed companies.

The International Green Finance Institute collects data through an ESG assessment methodology developed specifically for this emerging market and provides a range of reports and newsletters on the market environment in China.

Alireza Dorfard, Head of Market Data + Services at Deutsche Börse, said: “Especially for emerging markets like China, ESG data so far has often been very fragmentary and of insufficient quality. There are also language barriers, as many local listed companies usually only communicate in Chinese. The new service will allow international investors to better assess the ESG activities of Chinese companies and make more informed investment decisions. At the same time, it strengthens Deutsche Börse’s position as a key player in ESG reporting.

IIGF Director General Professor Wang Yao said, “China is an emerging market that is attracting global attention. As a leading green finance think tank, the IIGF has achieved outstanding research results in the development of ESG information database and services. By offering ESG data, ratings reports and bi-weekly IIGF reports on Deutsche Börse’s data platform, we are helping to build a bridge for global investors to understand the Chinese market and open markets of Chinese capital, which offer exceptional investment opportunities for global investors. investors. »
