DATA SOURCES


Our Sustainability and ESG scoring system and associated indexes draw from over 30 sources of independently verified and/or standardized data.

While we rely occasionally on formal “Sustainability Reports,” or similar forms of CSR reporting, we (and others) have found these sources to be frequently inaccurate, unreliable or simply a statement of principles, policies and plans.

Instead, we utilize actual, historic operating data, most of which the utilities are required to report annually by law and regulation to various government agencies.

Some of our data sources include:

  • Securities and Exchange Commission and other financial filings
    • 10-Ks
    • 10-Qs
    • 8-Ks
    • Proxy Statements
    • Offering Prospectuses
  • Industry Regulatory Filings
    • FERC Form 1
    • FERC Form 2
    • FERC Form 714
    • FERC Form 3-Q
    • EIA-861
    • Integrated Resource Plans
  • Government Agencies
    • Census Bureau
    • Department of Energy
    • Department of Transportation
    • Environmental Protection Agency
    • Occupational Safety and Health Administration
  • Over 30 publicly-accessible data sources, as well as third party data bases
  • High levels of transparency and independent verifiability
