With this partnership, users of Manaos investment services marketplace and reporting platform will have access to OWL ESG’s sustainability insights, among over 15+ other data providers. Clients are now provided with both OWL'S ESG IQ Data, consisting of the highest-quality company profiles, regulatory framework alignment, principals-based screening, and impact metrics, and its Consensus Scores, which creates a smoothing effect to negate the impact of subjective scoring models.
"Integrating with Manaos is a very important step for OWL ESG," said Ben Webster, CEO of OWL ESG. "Consistent with our core principle of transforming how ESG data is gathered, analyzed, researched, and applied, we are excited to include both our IQ Data and our Consensus Scores on a cutting edge platform. Whether investors want pure data to make decisions with confidence, or they want to see scoring without the influence of one provider’s subjective priorities, OWL can deliver fresh, objective, transparent, and accurate data.”
Franck Delbes, CEO of Manaos, stated, "Having OWL ESG onboard Manaos confirms our commitment to providing enhanced data to the market while effectively managing costs. As an ESG marketplace and aggregator, the Consensus Scores approach strongly resonates with and strengthens one of our key takes on ESG scoring: methodologies are subjective, and managing risk effectively requires multiple data sources."
