Deutsche Börse: Climate data from 1,800 companies available online

05/04/2012

Climate data from 1,800 companies around the world will be available online free of charge from today as part of the data partnership between the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) and Deutsche Börse. The data can be accessed at www.boerse-frankfurt.com. It enables comparisons between companies in terms of their contributions to climate protection and transparency with regard to their carbon emissions.

The aim of the partnership is to raise market standards and transparency, and to enable investors, analysts and other market participants to gain a comprehensive overview of each company and its sustainability strategy.

The CDP is an independent non-commercial organisation which holds the world’s largest database of climate information relating to companies. Deutsche Börse maintains its principle of neutrality in this aspect too.

Deutsche Börse has offered a sustainability portal on its website since April 2011: www.boerse-frankfurt.com. This environmental, social and governance data – or “ESG criteria” – is now being complemented by emissions data from the Carbon Disclosure Project.
