Hideki Suzuki of Bloomberg spoke with Video4Good at the 2013 Ethical Sourcing Forum about the company’s efforts to collect and analyze ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) data, which they display on the Bloomberg financial terminals.

According to Suzuki, mainstream investors are increasingly looking at supply chains and other extra-finanacial information in order to evaluate companies. Therefore, he says, it is very important for companies to monitor and report on their ESG performance.
