Sustainalytics builds strategic partnerships with organizations such as research firms or global leading index providers to further extend our research coverage at the local level and help local investors to makes informed long-term investment decisions.




STOXX Limited

Sustainalytics has established a partnership with STOXX Limited, the market-moving provider of innovative, substantial and global index concepts. In April 2011, STOXX introduced the STOXX Global ESG Leaders Index family, an innovative series of ESG (environmental, social, governance) indices which is based on sustainability data provided by Sustainalytics. The new index family will set standards in terms of full transparency and comprehensiveness in the ESG indexing space. The key innovation in the STOXX Global ESG Leaders Index family is the fact that all ratings for the E, S, and G categories, as well as the methodology used to construct them, is made public on STOXX’s website, as well as on a newly launched webportal hosted by and integrated in Deutsche Boerse’s website for sustainable investments. Also, to ensure the quality of the index and the integrity of the underlying index methodology, an independent advisory committee has been established to give advice on the general ESG methodology underlying the indices.

Tellus Institute


Tellus Institute

In 2012, the Tellus Institute and Sustainalytics published Worker Equity in Food and Agriculture, a research report examining worker welfare in the U.S food and agriculture industries. With support from the Rockefeller Foundation, the report looks at the practices and policies of some of the largest and most influential food companies in the U.S. Sustainalytics and Tellus conducted research on companies across the entire food value chain, from farmers and producers to factories, distributors, retailers and restaurants. The report found harmful practices throughout the food value chain, but it also identified examples of emerging best practices.
