Academic Research Lab

The Act Analytics Academic Research Lab is a collection of leading academic and industry research partners working to derive new insights and further understanding of the impact of independent current ESG signals on stock performance.

Students and professors are provided with free access to the Act Analytics data suite of ESG scores, via either the API or Act Explorer web application in support of their research. Academic papers addressing specific issues or testing hypotheses on risk and returns from environmental, social and governance signals are encouraged, with additional support and mentorship available from the Act Analytics team and connection to other academics.
