ESG Reference Material - Defining Data Considered E & S

MISMO is seeking public comment on new reference material designed to assist in identifying data elements that could be leveraged by lenders, investors, and trading partners to gather environmental, social and governance (ESG) information.  The 60-day public comment period runs through November 5, 2023. 

What It Includes

MISMO’s ESG Community of Practice gained input from ESG thought leaders who collaborated to create the reference material.  The idea was driven by participants desire to create and sell pools or securities that could be labeled as “ESG” and progressed into a discussion of which data in use in the industry could be used to discuss and define ESG investing in our space.  The deliverable package includes:

  • Implementation Considerations document.  This document provides an overview of the process to create the Reference Guide, Use Cases, and Disclosure/legal considerations
  • E and S Reference Guide.   List of terms, mapping to our framework, and rationale for consideration using the term to be considered S or E.
