Understanding Your Company's ESG Ratings
In September 2018, Sustainalytics announced the launch of its next generation ESG Risk Ratings, which evaluate the degree to which a company's enterprise value is exposed to material ESG issues. Specifically, they measure a company's exposure to industry-specific material ESG risks, and how well that company is managing those risks. Combining the concepts of management and exposure we arrive at an absolute assessment of ESG risk that is comparable across subindustries, sectors, companies and regions.
With our institutional investor clients beginning to integrate our ESG Risk Ratings into their workflows, investment decisions and product development, we want to be sure company representatives understand our ratings work and our research process.
To learn more about Sustainalytics' ESG Risk Ratings and our company research and feedback process, we encourage you to watch the first two webinars in our Issuer Informational Series below or contact us.
