Corporate Sustainability

Sustainability is a critical element for Sustainalytics. We understand and embrace the notion that embedding sustainability into our decision making is integral to our long-term success, from both a financial and impact perspective.

Sustainalytics has been in the business of analysing companies' ESG performance and impact since 1992. We continuously use this 20+ years of experience to focus inwards and apply this same analysis to ourselves. This analysis is presented in our 2015 Sustainability Report, Sustainable Momentum.

Below is an overview of our Corporate Values and some of our corporate sustainability policies:

Environment

Embedding Sustainability into our operations comes naturally to Sustainalytics. It's part of our DNA, it's who we are, and it's also smart business. 

Sustainalytics measures and offsets its indirect CO2 emissions from business and commuter travel. To help us calcualte and offset our emissions we partnered with Swiss-based myclimate.org and chose to support CEDESOL, a programme that reduces carbon emissions, improves health, and reduces stress placed on forestry resources in Bolivia and Paraguay through the replacement of inefficient wood burning stoves with high efficiency rocket stoves or solar cookers.

Sustainalytics established a formal Sustainable Procurement Policy in 2014. The policy applies to all supplies, services, and food and drink. We aim to extend the scope of the policy throughout 2016.

Social

Our people are our most important asset and so we manage our company to provide a motivating, positive and supportive environment for employees. Sustainalytics' Corporate Values, help guide and nurture this environment.

Our Corporate Values: 

•  We have a positive impact on our world
 
•  We embrace diverse perspectives
 
•  We foster excellence through continuous collaboration 
 
•  We are adaptable and entrepreneurial
 
•  We treat others as we like to be treated


Since 2013, Sustainalytics has been organising an Annual Global Volunteer Day to help foster teambuilding on a regional level, while celebrating a sense of global unity. 

Corporate Governance

In May 2015, Sustainalytics implemented a Global Code of Conduct (which replaced existing regional codes). The Global Code of Conduct lays out the principles by which Sustainalytics employees conduct themselves in terms of discrimination and harassment, independence and objectivity, insider trading and conflicts of interest.

Furthermore, Sustainalytics has a separate Chairman governance structure with two subcommittees of the Board - the Audit and Risk Committee and the Remuneration and Employee Committee.
