Bloomberg announced it has won a Gold Award in Financial Services at the Japanese Ministry of Environments ESG Finance Awards Japan. These awards recognize investors and financial institutions that have made significant contributions on advancing environmental issues, by helping Japanese businesses create corporate value through business strategies that incorporate environmental considerations. The award noted Bloombergs contribution to solving challenges in ESG investing one of which is the lack of standardized data available to investors and improving market transparency.
A longtime advocate for improving the quality and usefulness of corporate sustainability disclosures, Bloomberg is a trusted and reliable source for environmental, social & governance (ESG) data. Bloomberg offers ESG data with 10+ years of history for more than 11,700 companies in 102 countries, in addition to its proprietary Gender Equality Index (GEI) and its quant-driven ESG scores launched in 2020. It is also a founding partner of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), the Climate Finance Leadership Initiative (CFLI), and other organizations making a significant contribution to sustainability. The TCFD is chaired by Bloomberg founder Michael R. Bloomberg.
Additionally, Bloomberg recently announced its own business commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2025 on February 3, 2021, underscoring its long-standing commitment to sustainability and climate action.
We are delighted to receive the coveted Gold Award having just received the Bronze Award in this category last year, said Norman Tweeboom, Head of Japan at Bloomberg. It speaks to our recent efforts to accelerate the development of our ESG solutions to help investors create alpha with impact. ESG is a particularly important focus for the investment community in forward-looking Japan, the country with the highest number of TCFD-supporting companies in the world. Bloomberg will continue to support global efforts that encourage greater ESG disclosure and create positive long-term financial impact.
