Since 1998, ECOFACT has been helping clients to understand the risks and opportunities that ESG issues pose for the financial sector.
We provide due diligence solutions, risk assessments, and portfolio screenings for banks, insurers, and asset owners. ECOFACT also publishes the Policy Outlook tool, and the ECOFACT Quarterly.
The Policy Outlook is a regulatory monitoring system that helps our clients to monitor regulatory change pertaining to sustainable finance and corporate responsibility. Policy Outlook makes it easy to keep track of hard and soft law initiatives, stay on top of evolving ESG regulation and identify trends thanks to updates and in-depth analyses.
The ECOFACT Quarterly
The ECOFACT Quarterly is a briefing tailored to the needs of individuals and teams in charge of assessing and controlling environmental and social risks in corporate banking, investment banking and insurance.
Being linked to controversial environmental and human rights issues may lead to financial losses, reputational damage, regulatory sanctions or even litigation. We support risk management and compliance units in assessing potentially controversial clients, transactions, corporate partnerships and other business relationships.
Regulation requires financial institutions to assess potentially controversial companies they invest in or support. We will help our clients identify criteria in line with international and national standards and determine their own unique tolerance to risk as an asset owner, lender or underwriter. We screen client portfolios as well as equity and debt portfolios consisting of both listed and non-listed entities.
Monitoring Peer Policies
Monitoring peer policies is a time-consuming task that involves significant resources. Our new research product provides financial institutions with a coordinated analysis of ESG policies based on a neutral, sound, and transparent methodology. The methodology and scope are informed by the needs of the participating institutions.
