One of the challenges in ESG analysis is determining the level of significance of an ESG event and how material it is to a company. To help answer this question, FactSet launched the Truvalue Labs SASB Spotlight Events Data Service.
A Spotlight Event is declared when FactSet’s proprietary algorithm detects exceptional information flow about a company relative to the typical flow. The algorithm is designed to automatically detect key salient ESG events in near real time. The data sources include media coverage, regulatory or NGO reports, and commentary from trade unions and other stakeholders.
