SUSTAINALYTICS’ GCCS REPORTS
Our Global Compact Compliance Service company reports provide an assessment of a company’s involvement in controversies relative to the 10 Principles of the UN Global Compact and international norms. We assess a company’s impact on stakeholders and the extent to which it violates, or is at risk of breaching, any of the Principles and internationally-accepted norms. The GCCS assessment is an impact-focused assessment overlay on top of our ESG Controversy research.
The report provides a summary of the company’s involvement in a controversy, the impact or potential impact of such involvement on society, the company’s management of its negative impacts, and an assessment of the company’s violation of any of the 10 Principles and other international norms.
