Citi partners with Truevalue to use AI for ESG

Citi will partner with Truvalue Labs to incorporate AI analysis into its ESG research.

Citi’s Research & Global Insights group will use Truvalue Labs data to monitor public company performance against sustainability criteria developed by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). Citi says the collaboration will provide a range of daily signals that identify both positive and negative ESG behavior, independent of what companies report themselves.

Citi’s Research & Global Insights team is developing a materiality assessment that will combine company reported sustainability disclosure information from traditional sources with Truvalue Labs’ real-time, AI-driven ESG data. Truvalue Labs covers more than 19,000 public and private companies.

“As part of Citi’s 2025 Sustainable Progress Strategy, we are integrating ESG analysis into our client engagements across the firm, and are working with leading ESG data providers to supplement internal expertise,” said Val Smith, Citi’s Chief Sustainability Officer. “The Truvalue Labs collaboration with our Research & Global Insights team is an exciting development, as it will enable us to combine internal analysis, ESG data and AI to help us gain a deeper understanding of the opportunities and risk landscapes for our clients.”
