Taking clear steps to improve your company’s ESG performance is no longer just a public relations exercise. Quite often, investors and stakeholders demand to see a clear plan to improve a company’s ESG Risk Rating, as ESG success has been linked to a business’s overall, long-term success.
But how does your company begin to assess its Material ESG Issues (MEIs)? Sustainalytics’ Peer Performance Insights is a good way to start. This suite of products provides information about your company’s ESG Risk Rating and its components compared to a select number of industry peers.
The different products that comprise the Peer Performance Insights suite leverage ESG Risk Ratings to offer analysis at varying degrees of depth, from high-level industry and peer comparisons, to detailed industry trends, management scores, and controversies, amongst others.
