CSRHub Intrinio

CSRHub, a leading provider of ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) consensus ratings, is pleased to announce it has partnered with Intrinio, a financial data marketplace that provides fintech data and applications for developers and investors.

Both CSRHub and Intrinio are committed to making financial and ESG data affordable and easy to access so investors and analysts can save money and time building meaningful outcomes.

Investors and researchers increasingly want to integrate their financial data with ESG data for more efficient and impactful analysis. CSRHub data can be used to benchmark ESG performance, increase corporate market value, uncover portfolio opportunities and risks, back-test theories about ESG behavior, and integrate ESG trends into other Business Intelligence data sets.

Using a patented algorithm that aggregates and harmonizes disparate data from 690+ ESG sources, CSRHub generates a consensus score for the ESG performance of 19,000 companies from 134 industries in 143 countries.

“Partnering with Intrinio to deliver both their analytics and CSRHub’s ESG data to clients will enable investors to leverage powerful insights and enhance their decision-making processes,” said Cynthia Figge, CEO of CSRHub.

About CSRHub®

CSRHub provides access to corporate social responsibility and sustainability ratings and information on  19,000 companies from 134 industries in 143 countries.  Investment and corporate managers and researchers use CSRHub to benchmark company performance, learn how stakeholders evaluate company CSR practices and seek ways to change the world.  Their data comes from socially responsible investing research firms, well-known indexes, publications, “best of” or “worst of” lists, NGOs, crowd sources and government agencies. By aggregating and normalizing the information from these sources, CSRHub has created a broad, consistent rating system and a searchable database that links each rating point back to its source.
