    GLEIF Announces Availability of LEI Datasets on Cloud

    November 15, 2021

    The Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) announced that, in collaboration with OS-Climate and Amazon, the real-time open Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) datasets are being made publicly available for the first time in the cloud, via the Amazon Sustainability Data Initiative (ASDI) data catalog. Building on a long-standing relationship with ASDI, OS-Climate drove this move to allow easier integration of LEI data with its own datasets, which supports the development of open data and open-source analytics for climate risk management and climate-aligned finance and investment.

    The new availability of LEI data within ASDI has the potential to deliver a much wider-reaching impact on the global sustainability ecosystem. By making large sustainability datasets publicly available to anyone, ASDI seeks to accelerate sustainability research and innovation by minimizing the cost and time required for data acquisition and analysis. The datasets can also be easily accessed by, and integrated with, other sustainability initiatives, to enhance data modelling, mapping, and calculations. Additionally, GLEIF has updated the list of current and proposed regulatory activities on the use of Legal Entity Identifier (LEI). The list contains details, including links to domestic implementation documents, for jurisdictions where LEI is required, along with the effective date of regulatory requirements. In yet another update, GLEIF highlighted that the latest Global LEI System Business Report, for the third quarter of 2021, shows positive growth in the volume of LEIs worldwide. More than 60,000 LEIs were issued in the third quarter, representing a quarterly growth rate of 3.3%.
