Trucost Plc is the world leading environmental data provider established in early 2000 to help organisations, investors and governments understand the environmental impacts of business activities. Trucost provides data and analysis on company emissions and natural resource usage and presents these in financial as well as quantity terms, providing the basis for an improved dialogue between companies, investors and other stakeholders.
The external cost methodology employed by Trucost outlines a company's environmental impacts in order of significance, enabling directors and auditors to focus their efforts on those impacts that are likely to be material to the business. This also forms a transparent process by which a company and its auditors can assess whether it should make a public disclosure, for example under the EU Accounts Modernisation Directive.
Fund managers and analysts increasingly need to know how environmental issues may have a financially material impact on companies' future earnings and make comparisons between companies in a given sector. Yet their ability to accurately assess this is currently constrained by the lack of consistent or comprehensive environmental data disclosure by companies. Trucost's comprehensive coverage ensures that all companies in an index are included, not just those that disclose environmental information. Trucost provides data and analysis on over 4,500 companies worldwide, covering the world’s major investment indices. Click here for details.
