ESG Data Platforms can join the EDCI through inbound or outbound API connections

The EDCI’s mission is to drive convergence around meaningful environmental, social, and governance metrics for the private markets. It generates actionable, performance-based insights based on comparable ESG data from more than 4,000 private companies – with participating firms from all over the world and across all sectors.

The EDCI’s collaborates with ESG Data Platforms in two ways: (1) an inbound API to streamline GP data submissions to the initiative and (2) an outbound API to enable data platforms to directly visualize EDCI benchmark analysis for their EDCI GP and LP clients.

These offerings allow ESG Data Platforms to streamline EDCI data submissions for their clients and harness the benchmark’s data to unlock insights and increase engagement with EDCI member clients. Platforms are welcome to connect to one or both APIs.
