Impact Cubed adds sovereign ESG data

Impact Cubed has added sovereign fixed income impact data to its offering.

Impact Cubed says the new data offering is designed to enable investors to understand how sovereign debt issuing countries are leading or lagging on progress in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It removes the bias toward wealthy nations embedded in traditional ESG risk scores and helps investors see the level of SDG performance weighed against each country’s rate of progress.

Impact Cubed sovereign impact dataset curates 29 ESG factors from globally recognized sources, including the World Bank and United Nations, spanning all 17 SDGs with a 20-year timeseries for over 190 countries covering over 99% of sovereign debt.
