Solaron launches ESG Performance Tracker on 6000+ Global stocks

Enabling Investors to monitor and track actual, up to date ESG performance of Stocks, Funds and Portfolios


Solaron Sustainability Services (Solaron) announces the launch of its Global ESG Tracker™ platform – to cater to the diverse needs of investors seeking to incorporate actual, up to date ESG performance of holdings into investment strategies.

The ESG Tracker™ platform provides ESG performance data, updated weekly and trends for over 6,000 global companies, along with their real world impact. The platform is a perfect complement to the more traditional ESG ratings services that primarily focus on historic policy assessment data that is updated infrequently. The ESG Tracker™ platform’s ability to highlight actual and up to date corporate behaviour and practices across sectors and regions will enable investors to make a more informed and real world assessment of a company’s ESG related risks / performance and their impact on portfolio performance.

Solaron recognises that each investment institution will adopt a unique strategy and approach. Consequently, ESG Tracker™ has been designed to support all Investment strategies and data requirements within a single platform. Comprehensive risk updates are complemented by Solaron’s award winning primary research, leveraging insights from on-the-ground analysts, supported by a network of 3000+ stakeholders including local NGOs, regulators, and industry experts.

ESG Tracker™ includes these features:

ESG Integration:

Stream raw data on ESG performance of companies, sectors and regions across a range of material ESG indicators, themes and data points.
Use Data to build stand-alone ESG integration models or incorporate into existing systems.
Monitor trends in performance, leading to actionable insights.

Engagement Prioritization:
Track up to date ESG performance of companies, sectors and regions to assist with the determination of reactive and proactive engagement priorities.
Identify the most material risks across companies, sectors, countries and themes, supported by evidence.

Proxy Voting:
Assess the impact of ESG performance on companies’ proxy items to enable informed voting decisions on the approval of report and accounts, election of directors, and sustainability related proposals.

Customized Solution:
ESG Tracker™ can be customized to suit specific requirements of Investors relating to specific coverage, investment or risk themes and different user scenarios

As the responsible investment industry continues on its journey towards a more performance-oriented culture and reporting, encouraged by the PRI, the ESG Tracker™ platform is a ‘must have’ tool to support reliable tracking of ESG performance.

“In the last 20 years, ESG research has looked at company policies in extensive detail which tend to be different from the risks that they face on the ground. As Investors demand more value from their ESG teams and tools, there is a need for a platform that monitors up to date and real world ESG performance of companies across ESG parameters and their specific correlation with market risk or return.

Solaron has done pioneering work with clients over the past 6 years to develop cutting edge frameworks, research infrastructure and tools, and in bringing ESG performance trends in front of Investors. The ESG Tracker™ platform brings together all these innovations in a single place, allowing clients to focus their energies on value creation. This unique product brings a new perspective to the existing set of tools available to Investors." according to Vipul Arora, Co-founder and MD, Solaron.
