The FSC and the Korea Exchange launched an integrated environmental, social and governance (ESG) information platform on December 20, providing a convenient one-stop information service on ESG-related information of listed companies for investors and the general public.
The ESG information platform provides (a) background information on the significance of ESG management, key regulatory trends and related issues, (b) information about the listed companies’ ESG activities, ratings and their sustainability reports, (c) statistical information on ESG investment trends and (d) other educational materials.
As the ESG information platform offers a convenient one-stop information service for a variety of ESG-related data originating from different sources, companies and institutions, users will be able to access and utilize data tailored to their individual needs.
The authorities expect that the ESG information platform will function as an important information hub for ESG-related data and help raise overall awareness on the importance of the ESG movement. The FSC and the KRX will continue to work on making improvements to the platform to help enhance user convenience and expand the types of ESG data made available through the platform.
