Landmark Information – the leading provider of information to the UK’s property market – has today announced it has acquired the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) due diligence platform, RiskHorizon™, from global sustainability consultancy Anthesis Group.
The platform delivers valuable global insights to a broad group of asset owners and managers, from private equity and investment houses to corporates and their lawyers. It provides a comprehensive and actionable ESG due diligence screen of their global corporate acquisition(s) or investments across the world. It also enables the effective management of ESG within an existing business, newly acquired assets and supply chains.
RiskHorizon helps deal makers and their legal, finance and ESG advisors to identify material ESG risks and opportunities at an early stage of a deal and then take full account of the relevant issues throughout both the transaction and investment life cycle.
It is a cost-effective, web-based tool that spans millions of data points from over 175 countries, covering 30+ global risks, including economic, environmental, technical, social and geo-political.
Chris Loaring, Managing Director (Legal) for Landmark Information said: “The RiskHorizon platform enables us to expand our portfolio of data-led due diligence services to the legal, investment and financial sectors, by providing a global environmental social and governance screening and portfolio management tool that can better determine the future financial performance of companies, as well as manage portfolios, by sector or geography.”
Tim Clare, Director of Anthesis Group said, “Landmark Information Group is an established and reputable data and technology-driven business and we look forward to seeing how Landmark will further evolve the RiskHorizon platform to support the market’s growing needs for ESG data and management tools. We’ll continue to work in partnership with Landmark Information, providing expertise and guidance to support the development of RiskHorizon. ”
Used in the investment due diligence process, the purpose-made tool helps legal advisors, investors, finance professionals and deal makers to identify the material ESG risks and opportunities at an early stage of the deal cycle and take full account of the relevant issues throughout the investment life cycle.
