With increasing emphasis on how ESG factors can potentially impact investment returns, having timely and comprehensive news and ESG ratings on global public companies from a trustworthy source like Sustainalytics is essential in today’s portfolio construction. As a leading voice in global business and financial information, MT Newswires is committed to providing the investment community with this critically important corporate ESG information.
As part of its news stories, MT Newswires is leveraging Sustainalytics’ ESG Risk Ratings. Sustainalytics, a Morningstar Company, is a globally-recognized provider of ESG research, ratings and data. The firm’s industry-leading ESG Risk Ratings are designed to help investors identify and understand financially material ESG risks in their portfolio companies and how that risk might affect performance.
Sustainalytics’ ESG Risk Ratings measure a company’s exposure to industry-specific material ESG risks and how well a company is managing those risks. This multi-dimensional way of measuring ESG risk combines the concepts of management and exposure to arrive at an assessment of ESG risk, i.e. a total unmanaged ESG risk score or the ESG Risk Rating, that is comparable across all industries. Sustainalytics’ ESG Risk Ratings provide a quantitative measure of unmanaged ESG risk and distinguish between five levels of risk: negligible, low, medium, high and severe.
