    ATLANTA & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (NYSE: ICE), a leading global provider of data, technology and market infrastructure, today announced that its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Reference Data coverage now includes 2 million fixed income instruments.
