IDENTIFYING IMPORTANT TRENDS IN YOUR BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

The research methodology of Sustainalystics Corporate Sustainability Services actively tracks relevant sustainability trends across five dimensions. Our team of global analysts monitors thousands of publications from the media, government, labour, industry and not-for-profit organizations, among others, from around the world. Our analysts also regularly monitor and maintain dialogue with key stakeholders in the industries under analysis to obtain a full understanding of all relevant sustainability trends and issues.

Macro-environment analysis identifies sustainability factors that might affect or influence specific industry supply and demand levels, and cost structures. A PESTE scan (political, economic, social, technological and environmental) is a strategic methodology used to understand how external sustainability trends impact industries and markets. Each PESTE factor plays a part in determining the overall business environment.

CUSTOMIZED TRENDS ANALYSIS

After each key trend has been identified, we identify the potential of each trend to disrupt the industry under analysis and how these issues may affect the client company and its key stakeholders (including suppliers and users). Understanding trends is an important component to planning and prioritizing investments in sustainability policies, programs and procedures.
