Rating & Ranking

Requirements of rating and ranking agencies

Sustainability ratings and rankings play a major role in the evaluation of corporate climate and sustainability strategies and the formulation of goals. Stakeholders from the financial sector in particular utilize the results of rating and ranking agency evaluations to determine economic risk and success factors for companies and investors based on data on environmental and social performance. sustainable helps companies from a wide variety of industries to improve their rating results for the CDP, Dow Jones Sustainability Index, oekom research, sustainalytics or MSCI ratings and optimize the necessary data processes and workflows.
