Arabesque S-Ray, a leading global data provider of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics, today announced strategic partnerships with four new co-investors: Allianz X, Commerz Real AG, DWS Group, and Land Hessen. Allianz X led Arabesque’s Series A funding round, with the four shareholders jointly investing $20 million USD.
Using ESG big data and machine learning models, Arabesque S-Ray provides technology that is used by many of the world’s largest institutional investors, corporations, and consultancies to assess the sustainability performance of over 7,000 companies globally. The new strategic partnerships will allow Arabesque S-Ray to enhance its client relationships and expand its business by developing new ESG data products and services to meet growing global demand for sustainability information. This will include S-Ray Real Estate, an AI-based tool for evaluating the sustainability of real estate objects. The technology will use traditional data sources on an asset-level, together with new emerging digital sources from Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and devices within buildings.
