Over the past twenty years, ESG investing has gone from niche to mainstream, and as investors continue to pour money into ESG assets, there is a growing need for reliable data that will boost confidence in the market.

dv01's mission is to bring unparalleled transparency and intelligence to every loan for every stakeholder—and we’re committed to helping the market cut through the greenwash to bring trust, accountability, and transparency into ESG. To that extent, we are releasing market intelligence to educate investors, resolve questions, and provide clarity on the evolution of ESG investing in structured credit.

Our inaugural report discusses the key principle of defining what ESG means specifically for structured credit, and outlines the importance of a complete, comparable ESG evaluation for a particular security rather than relying upon a small number of variables for determining ESG status.
