US Headquartered firms ESG data

Hi,

I was wondering how I can get ESG data for the last 19 years for firms headquartered in the US using Python API.

Best,

Mahdieh

Hi @mahdiehvg,

The code snippet shown by Wasin will get you the historical ESG data for any instrument. If you don't already have a list, and need to find the companies headquartered in the US, then you can search for those using the screener query, by specifying the filter item: TR.HeadquartersRegion. See this article on how to use screener in python.

Hello @mahdiehvg

You can use the RD Library to get historical ESG data.

Example Code:

rd.get_history(universe="LSEG.L", 
               fields=["TR.TRESGScore","TR.TRESGCScore","TR.TRESGCControversiesScore"], 
               interval="1Y",  
               start="2002-01-01", 
               end="2022-10-01")

Result:

Hope this helps
