RepRisk wins third successive tender issued by the Norwegian Government Pension Fund Global’s Council on Ethics
RepRisk will be used to monitor the Fund’s portfolio for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks
RepRisk, the leading provider of research and business intelligence on ESG and business conduct risks, is proud to announce that it has been selected as the provider of ESG data for the Norwegian Government Pension Fund Global’s Council on Ethics. Notably, RepRisk won the tender on the strength of reaching the maximum quality score (10 out of 10).
RepRisk won its first tender with the Council on Ethics in 2009, and has been working with it since, monitoring the companies in the Fund’s portfolio on a daily basis for issues such as severe human rights violations, particularly in relation to child labor, forced labor, and violations of human rights in conflict areas, as well as gross environmental degradation and corruption.
With the tender win, RepRisk will continue to monitor the Fund’s portfolio for 2018-2022. The analytics and in-depth research provided by RepRisk will help the Council on Ethics to analyze and select cases of ESG violations that may lead to exclusion by the Fund.
“We are extremely proud to continue working with the Norwegian Government Pension Fund Global, as the decisions made by its Council on Ethics have a significant influence on, and contribute to, shaping the perception of ESG issues globally,” said RepRisk CEO Philipp Aeby. “Winning the tender for the third time is a testament to the quality and value of RepRisk’s unique research and the work of our analysts.”
