OUR APPROACH

We take a value chain approach to our assessment, considering both a company’s operational and product alignment. Operationally, we consider a company’s preparedness and performance, alongside involvement in controversies. On the products side we assess involvement in sustainable product and services (aligned products), like renewable energy, and controversial products (misaligned products), like thermal coal.
