    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. ICE’s ESG Reference data covers equity and fixed income securities across North America, Europe and Asia and adds transparency to allow users to better understand ESG risks and opportunities.

    With the rise of sustainable investing, more and more investors have become focused on incorporating ESG data into their investment research and decision-making process. However, because of the complexity and size of fixed income markets, which the Institute of International Finance estimates are approximately three times the size of equity markets, many investors and other participants have not been able to view ESG metrics when it comes to identifying risks and potential growth opportunities in fixed income securities.

    Uniper recorded adjusted EBIT of €614 million in the first nine months of 2021. The prior-year figure was €405 million. The primary reason for the more than 50-percent earnings increase was a higher contribution of the international and gas mid-stream commodity business. Earnings were adversely affected by a price- and volume-driven increase in provisions for carbon allowances relative to the prior-year period. The provisions are mirrored by carbon hedging transactions that will be unwound in the fourth quarter of 2021. This effect therefore will not adversely impact adjusted EBIT for the year as a whole.

    Earnings at the European Generation segment surpassed the prior-year figure. The segment benefited above all from the commissioning of Datteln 4 coal-fired power plant in late May 2020 and the return to commercial operations of Irsching 4 and 5 gas-fired generating units in the fourth quarter of 2020. Higher income from the UK capacity market also had a positive impact on earnings.
