Industry Reports

Sustainalytics’ Industry Reports provide a concise yet comprehensive overview of the trends and challenges facing companies within their sectors. Clients will gain insights into the industry-specific environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues that may pose material risks and opportunities to companies and their shareholders.

These reports identify industry leaders and laggards and outline best practices surrounding key performance indicators. Investors develop an understanding of the linkages between core business drivers, such as access to resources or regulatory environment,  and key ESG issues such as community relations or climate change. Case studies, based on research from the Sustainalytics’ Global Platform, provide concrete examples of best practices  and incidents of noncompliance and underperformance.
