RepRisk increases research coverage by adding Dutch language

windfarm 410RepRisk, a data provider on environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks, has added the Dutch language to its research process, bringing the total number of languages it covers to 15. The move comes after partnering up with Steward Redqueen, a consultancy based in the Netherlands but with a global client base. RepRisk ESG Risk Platform analyses risk incidents related to companies, projects, sectors and countries and is used by corporate clients worldwide. The platform currently contains data on over 50,000 companies and 12,000 projects. “Broad language coverage is important to RepRisk because our experience shows that risks appear at the local level, in local languages, first,” says Nicole Streuli-Fuerst, head of operations and research at RepRisk. ©2015 funds europe
