Metrio Acquisition

Nasdaq unveiled its plans to acquire Metrio in recent announcements. Based in Montreal, Canada, Metrio collects, analyzes and reports data on environmental, social and governance issues. As part of its ESG solution suite, Nasdaq will integrate Metrio's software as a service (SaaS) platform.

Metrio's acquisition underscores the exchange owner's commitment to helping clients better manage and unlock the value of their data. Michael Bartels, the Senior Vice President of IR & ESG Services at NASDAQ, pointed out that Metrio’s platform is complementary to the technology company’s end-to-end suite of sustainability reporting solutions.

Moreover, Bartels noted that the platform will accelerate NASDAQ’s ability to support corporate clients who are looking for improved reporting technology across all three pillars of ESG. Reacting to the news, Patrick Elie, the Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder of Metrio, said the company was tremendously proud of the market-leading reporting solution that the firm has built over the last decade.
