World Bank launches ESG data portal

The World Bank Group (WBG) has launched an ESG ‘portal’ to help identify the risks and opportunities for more social and sustainable activities that are better aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Sovereign ESG Data Portal is part of the work supported by the Global Program on Sustainability (GPS), which aims to provide governments and investors with information and tools that improve their understanding of sustainability criteria, including through natural capital accounting.

The Sovereign ESG Data Framework incorporates data relevant to all 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The Framework organises data into themes the World Bank considers to be crucial for financial sector representatives to consider when assessing the contribution of investments or policies to sustainable development.
