Sustainalytics, a global provider of ESG research, ratings and data, today announced the launch of its Corporate Supply Chain ESG Solutions, which include online access to company-level ESG ratings and data within Sustainalytics’ extensive research universe. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies of all sizes have been focused on improving the resilience of their supply chains. Leveraging Sustainalytics’ Corporate Supply Chain ESG Solutions, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and procurement professionals can evaluate the ESG risk management performance of their direct and indirect suppliers.
“Corporate executives are asking their procurement leaders to assess the ESG risks of their suppliers and partners to limit risk exposure and comply with increasing regulation in supply chain operations,” said Francesca Placa, manager of corporate solutions at Sustainalytics. “By providing a high-quality, standardized approach to assess company-level material ESG risks, Sustainalytics is well-positioned to help companies determine which suppliers may require the most in-depth evaluation on ESG issues.”
Sustainalytics’ ESG Risk Ratings offer an absolute measure for assessing company-level ESG risk. By providing a consistent approach, the firm’s ratings are comparable for companies in different industries. The ratings measure a company’s exposure to industry-specific material ESG risks and how well a company is managing those risks.
