Our mission: to raise the standard of ESG data
Our mission is to provide data, indexes, evaluation metrics and other tools that allow investors to make informed choices while helping the planet. This mission is not an afterthought; it’s at the core of everything we do.
Founded in 2012, OWL ESG is focused on providing a comprehensive suite of data, metrics and tools for evaluating sustainability and applying environmental, social, and governance metrics to the global investment arena.
We want our work to have a positive impact, whether by powering other investors to make more informed, impactful decisions with their money using our data, or by powering index-based products that allocate the lion’s share of investment dollars to good corporate citizens.
Leading financial institutions that are entrusted with managing billions of dollars for investors across the world turn to OWL for our diverse range of ESG products and customized solutions, to help them meet sustainability mandates that continue to expand and evolve.
The OWL ESG team is a blend of individuals with experience in ESG, quantitative asset management, AI and machine learning, data science and computer programming.
We have diverse backgrounds with a heavy emphasis on finance, the sciences, and mathematics. We all share a passion for discovering powerful alternative approaches to synthesizing data, improving its usability and applying insights from the data to improve investment performance while making the world a better place.
