ESG Data Working Group

LSFI Working Groups

About the ESG Data Working Group

To fulfill its mandate, the working group will work towards achieving the following objectives.

First objective

Address the lack of definition and clear understanding of what exactly the ESG data challenges are (e.g., type, coverage, accessibility, usability, …), providing definitions and understanding, as well as examples and tips.

Second objective

Support financial institutions by creating a guideline including key questions to be addressed to data providers so that FIs better understand the data they are using and the reliability of these data.

Why this Working Group?

In the transition towards sustainable finance, it is essential to understand where we stand and, therefore, be able to track progress. Having appropriate, granular and reliable data is paramount to do so.

However, data has long been a challenge, constantly highlighted during the LSFI regular meetings with sustainable finance players as well as during our annual stakeholder assembly.

The objectives mentioned above are considered key to tackling the existent data challenges and thus further advance sustainable finance and position Luxembourg as a pioneer in the space.
