The Sustainability Rating assesses your entire organisation – from ESG management to products and services to potential controversies. The rating prepared on your behalf serves as evidence of credible and transparent communication, assesses the status quo of your ESG management and can be used for sustainable financing instruments – for example ESG-linked loans/bonds.
The methodology and areas of assessment of the Sustainability Rating follow a classification of three international guiding ideas for sustainable development: Companies should operate responsibly within the framework of corporate social responsibility (CSR), achieve positive sustainability impacts and avoid sustainability risks in the form of controversies.
The systematic methodology of the rating allows for an adjustment of the ESG requirements according to size classes of the companies and the consideration of sector-specific ESG criteria.
The Sustainability Rating is prepared by an experienced analysis team in an in-depth research process. An average rating process usually takes about eight weeks.
The Sustainability Rating is a qualified basis for sustainable financing instruments such as sustainability-linked loans, ESG-linked promissory notes and other types of financing. Further advantages: With the help of a detailed ESG rating, internal sustainability processes can be evaluated and sustainability risks can subsequently be reduced in a targeted manner. In addition, the rating can be used for credible external communication of your own sustainability performance. With its sector- and size-specific methodology, it is particularly suitable for medium-sized companies.
