If you have Eikon and you're looking to retrieve ESG data programmatically, you need to use Eikon Data APIs. Apart from the documentation for Eikon Data APIs, there's a number of articles on Refinitiv Developer Portal with examples of retrieving ESG content including ESG controversies using Eikon Data APIs. Check out the article titled Gathering aggregated ESG data on companies. Does it help with what you're looking for?

Hi @lis-tisem-eikon10 ,

The best option for downloading large amount of ESG data is to use the RDP bulk API. The CFS service provides this option and you can read more about it here. Although the tutorial is about the Trade Discovery, the same concept will apply to ESG as well and ESG Bulk example is included in the Postman samples.

CFS API need additional permissions, so you may have to contact your Refinitiv account manager to get it.
