Bloomberg Facilitates Access to CSRD Data for Investors

A new offering from data vendor Bloomberg provides institutional investors with access to information being reported by companies in line with the EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD). The directive requires around 50,000 large corporates to report on their sustainability performance across more than 1,000 metrics, in line with European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) from the beginning of next year. Bloomberg said the new data offering would help to “holistically inform” the sustainability strategy of financial firms, also streamlining the sustainability reporting of their financing activities. The CSRD offering is based on a mapping of the ESRS to existing Bloomberg data fields. It includes historical data for a subset of fields reported by companies voluntarily or under previous regulatory requirements. Additional fields will be created so clients can access mandatory quantitative disclosures covering financial and impact materiality. Companies required to report in 2025 are already included in Bloomberg’s coverage, which will expand to also include firms reporting from 2026. “By providing high quality ESG data alongside financial data to our clients, we help them seamlessly understand the sustainability profile of their investments and streamline their reporting,” said Patricia Torres, Bloomberg’s Global Head of Sustainable Finance Solutions. Bloomberg’s CSRD data is available on the Bloomberg Terminal and via data license for scalable enterprise-wide use.
