RepRisk, a leading ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) data science company, has entered a partnership with AMEC, the Brazilian Association of Capital Market Investors. RepRisk is specialized in identifying and assessing material ESG and business conduct risks. Its risk analytics and metrics will provide AMEC with comprehensive ESG information, expanding the traditionally held positions on topics such as governance and market regulation.
“The partnership with RepRisk is important for our associates who are committed to improving their actions with a focus on aspects of socio-environmental and governance issues, allowing access to insights and relevant data on companies”, comments Fabio Coelho, AMEC’s CEO. “The agreement with RepRisk is in line with other partnerships that Amec has been developing with other important institutions”.
“Having access to daily-updated, risk-focused ESG data and metrics is very powerful in financial decision-making,” said Gabriel Cecchini, ESG Advisor Latin America at RepRisk. “We are excited to partner with AMEC to increase access to ESG information for Brazilian investors”.
Last year, AMEC had already organized a webinar in partnership with RepRisk, with the theme “ESG Risk Assessment for Brazilian and International Companies”. During the event, experts from the company presented the methodology and research approach for producing data and metrics, in addition to real-life case studies on ESG risk management and integration.
RepRisk already has an agreement with the Brazilian stock exchange B3. Since 2021, the cooperation provides B3 with ESG risk data on around 1000 Brazilian companies for updating the ISE B3 – the Corporate Sustainability Index.
