Corporate ESG Training

Learn from our experts about the ESG ecosystem


As the benefits of ESG become widely recognized, ESG ratings are a frequent topic of discussion among companies and investors. Companies want to know their rating and assess their performance from an ESG perspective but often lack the understanding of how the rating is derived and how the results should be interpreted. Without understanding the rating methodology, it can be difficult for companies to get the most value from the information they receive.

Morningstar Sustainalytics’ Corporate ESG Training will take your company’s ESG knowledge to the next level, teaching your employees about the importance of an ESG Risk Rating and guiding them through the process. Led by our expert Corporate Solutions team, the training is held over three 1-hour sessions and provides a personalized view of your company’s material ESG issues (MEIs) based on your industry and sub-industry. Enter the world of sustainability with confidence by building a solid foundation for future growth in the ESG ecosystem.
