Rating Impact Analysis - The tool for improving your company's ESG performance


ESG rating agencies and their different evaluation methods

ESG ratings already play a role in the investment decisions of investors today. At the same time, other stakeholders are also paying more attention to the ESG performance of companies, and for these groups, ESG ratings provide valuable guidance.

The problem is that ESG rating agencies use different evaluation methods and weighting, which can lead to different results. This practice poses a major challenge for companies to translate their ESG performance into rating improvements – ideally with all rating agencies.

We decipher your ESG ratings and translate them into to-do lists

As part of our ESG Rating Impact Analysis™, we decipher ESG ratings so that companies can better understand and influence the ratings in a targeted manner. Our analysis answers questions such as:

  • What can the company do to improve its ESG performance?
  • Where can rating improvements be achieved quickly and where are more comprehensive measures necessary?
  • What weight do individual topics contribute to the rating evaluation? Where are there overlaps?
  • What policies, indicators, and qualitative information must be provided?
  • Where has information perhaps been inadequately perceived by the ESG rating agency?
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of the company from the perspective of the ESG rating agency?

By answering these questions, companies can take targeted measures to improve their ESG performance and thereby improve their ESG rating.
