Sustainalytics' Research Process

Research Methodology

Sustainalytics thoroughly evaluates and analyses companies on their ESG performance using targeted sector-specific ESG indicators. Our analysis is supported by a comprehensive set of data gathered through a variety of primary and secondary sources, and specialized third-party data providers. We apply a rigorous quality assurance process through which we engage with companies to verify facts and clarify information.

The Sustainalytics model incorporates between 60 and 100 indicators, weighted according to the industry in which they are operating. These include a broad range of core and industry-specific indicators that address sustainability policies, management systems and performance outcomes.

In addition to Sustainalytics core ESG indicators, the platform highlights and assesses company involvement in controversies and incidents across ten issue areas.
