SD-M® GmbH uses the proprietary SD-KPI standards in a cooperation with the world's second largest ESG research agency Sustainalytics, a Morningstar company. The SD-KPIs are modeled using Sustainalytics' 42 peer groups and ESG indicators and quantitatively scored with values between 0 and 100 since 2009. The SD-KPInform® database evaluates SD-KPIs for more than 18,500 companies worldwide.
SD-M® GmbH also uses the proprietary SD-KPI standards in a cooperation with the ESG rating agency imug rating, using data from Moody's ESG Solutions (Moody's® is a registered trademark). The SD-KPIs are thereby modeled using 39 industry and ESG indicators and quantitatively assessed with values between 0 and 100. Further details can be found here.
SD-KPInform enables banks, investors, asset managers, data and index providers as well as software and consulting firms to easily and systematically integrate standardized material ESG KPIs into risk management, indices, funds, sustainability-linked bonds & loans and credit portfolios (SD-KPIntegration®).
Due to the high degree of overlap between SD-KPI and SASB standards, SD-KPInform can be used as a proxy and historical database for SASB and International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB).
