Greenstone enables responsible investing through launch of investor ESG software solution and becomes a PRI signatory

greenstone_tablet_frame_01_investorESGSmallGreenstone has launched its InvestorPortal Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, enabling responsible investing. This purpose-built software solution enables the collection, management and analysis of ESG data across investments, portfolios and funds.

Incorporating ESG performance into investment decisions and portfolio management strategies is becoming increasingly intrinsic. However, although responsible investment and ESG reporting is increasingly being considered, investment managers are faced with many challenges when it comes to gathering, maintaining and analysing ESG data.

InvestorPortal enables users to collect, manage and analyse performance and compliance data against a wide range of ESG criteria (both standard and proprietary).  With a comprehensive and verifiable ESG question library, it facilitates questionnaire distribution, document management, scoring and KPI and metrics analysis.

In conjunction with this product launch, Greenstone has become a signatory of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). This reinforces Greenstone’s commitment to integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) and Responsible Investment principles into its software and services.

"Greenstone's data capabilities will be of great help to investors as they seek to better manage their ESG data," said PRI CEO Fiona Reynolds.  "We are delighted to welcome them to the PRI and look forward to working together in the coming months."

Matthew de Villiers, CEO at Greenstone comments, “We are proud to become a PRI signatory, joining a global network committed to integrating ESG considerations into investment practices and ownership policies. Access to accurate and consistent ESG data to enable responsible investment decisions is now more important than ever and we are excited to be able to facilitate this through the addition of our InvestorPortal solution to Greenstone’s suite of sustainability solutions.”
