RAEX-Europe is introducing a new project involving the issuance of independent ESG reports for Russian companies and, in the future, for additional emerging markets. The Agency is building a database of corporate sustainability analysis reports, as well as corporate environmental, social and governance data points in order to provide a deeper understanding of ESG factors. Stakeholders will have an opportunity to see the existing materiality of ESG-related risks on the analyzed entities, as well as the assessment of the policies and actions a company takes to mitigate those risks.
The reports are company-specific. Within the 2Q 2020, the database will cover around 100 main Russian non-financial institutions from more than 20 different industries. The reports will be distributed on a paid basis and new reports will be added to the website platform by industry.
The first set of the reports for Metals and Mining is already available for purchase directly through our website platform, for purchase in Roubles through the Russian Accounting invoice and through the Refinitiv platform.
