Our set of metrics covers all major ESG frameworks and regulations. Our software automatically selects the relevant metrics for each framework, applies the correct methodology and generates the reports you need to comply. The metric library is constantly updated as regulations evolve so you can rest assured that you're complying with the latest standards. SFDR, CSRD, IFRS, TCFD, EDCI... you name it, we cater for it.
SFDR seeks to increase transparency in sustainable investment by setting out the obligations for providers of financial products and financial advisers towards end-investors. It applies to all Financial Market Participants marketing their products to EU-based investors. KEY ESG's software includes SFDR metrics for both investee companies and real estate.
CSRD requires listed and large EU-based companies as well as companies with a significant presence in the EU to report on an extended number of ESG metrics. Companies will be required to complete a double materiality assessment before being asked to report on a more tailored set of metrics. Data collected will be subject to third-party auditing and assurance processes. KEY ESG's software addresses all the reporting requirements and metrics of CSRD to simplify the compliance process.
The EDCI is the first-ever private equity industry collaboration. Launched in 2021 by a group of leading GPs and LPs, the EDCI is a voluntary reporting framework governed by industry experts, all united by their shared desire to drive convergence around meaningful ESG metrics and develop better reporting processes. KEY ESG is a tech partner of the EDCI and can stream our member clients' data directly into the EDCI platform for simplified reporting. KEY ESG is also able to provide benchmark data published by the EDCI directly in the app.
In the summer of 2023 the IFRS S1 and S2 were published by the International Sustainability Standards Board and adopted by G20 countries. This set of standards is the first globally recognised framework and is a landmark for the harmonisation of ESG reporting. KEY ESG supports all efforts to simplify and improve global ESG regulation and caters to IFRS S1 and S2 requirements.
The EU Taxonomy is a detailed legislative classification system that provides a common language for European sustainable finance regulations, including SFDR. It takes action to tackle greenwashing in European markets and beyond and allows managers to make direct comparisons on environmental performance across a range of asset classes and regulations. KEY ESG collects, reports and improves ESG processes in line with EU Taxonomy classifications.
The Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure promotes transparency to drive better-informed capital allocation. Its set of metrics helps investors, public companies and other stakeholders disclose climate-related risks and opportunities. TCFD reporting is mandatory in a number of countries and aligns very closely with IFRS. KEY ESG's platform supports both IFRS and TCFD reporting frameworks.
