Norms-based Screening

Sustainalytics’ Global Standards Screening assesses companies' impact on stakeholders and the extent to which a company causes, contributes or is linked to violations of international norms and standards (as defined by the UN Global Compact).

Human Rights Radar

Sustainalytics’ Human Rights Radar identifies companies that operate in regions where grave human rights violations take place. Operating in these regions increases the risk that the company may inadvertently become complicit or involved in an incident. It provides investors with information on the nature of the company’s activities and what risks it is subject to.

Controversies Research

Leveraging smart technologies, we monitor more than 60,000 media sources on a daily basis to identify ESG-related incidents. These incidents are assessed through a materiality framework that considers the severity thereof, the corporation’s accountability and whether they form part of a pattern of corporate misconduct.

3 Reasons to Skill Up and Scale Up ESG Stewardship in 2022

As our clients and the industry at large focus on proactively mitigating risk and capitalizing on this evolving landscape, stewardship will be a key lever for savvy investors—particularly those facing external pressure to divest.

Climate Action for Investors

For Investors with Ambitions to Lead on Climate Action Post COP26

In the weeks following COP26, investors in the UK and worldwide face a myriad of upcoming climate-related regulations heading towards the implementation phase. In addition, major global coalitions such as the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero have sprung up to attempt to accelerate decarbonization via targeted investment.

COP 26: A Spotlight on Emerging Climate Action Themes for Investors

Reactions to the COP26 Conference and the resulting Glasgow Climate Pact have predictably run the gamut from claims of greenwashing to the celebration of progress in the fight against climate change. Ultimately, any judgement on COP26 may be premature, as the success of the conference will best be measured in time by the extent to which commitments made are put into motion. While we wait to see the concrete actions that materialize, the past two weeks have underscored the importance of several themes that will garner increasing attention and should be considered by sustainable investors.

EU Action Plan SFDR

Momentum Around Principal Adverse Impact Data Remains Strong Despite SFDR Delays

Despite the shifting timelines, we observe that the market momentum around PAIs is not diminishing, quite the contrary. Investors in the scope of the regulation are using the fourth quarter of this year to get acquainted with PAI data and set up their systems. Most investors we speak with want to be prepared in time to be able to monitor PAIs throughout 2022 and adjust their portfolios to boost their PAIs (or rather limit the downside, as these are adverse impact indicators). This means that PAIs may significantly impact stock selection and portfolio construction by fund managers keen to have ‘good’ PAI scores.
