The path to meeting your company’s ESG goals can be a difficult one and it isn’t always clear what steps must be taken to achieve your sustainability and ESG targets. Companies are faced with a lot of questions and the answers are not always easy to come by. Sustainalytics’ ESG Performance Analytics helps you gain clear insights on your ESG performance and answers your ESG related questions by identifying gaps your company has versus your peers in your industry.
Our ESG Performance Analytics is the most thorough analysis of a company’s ESG Risk Rating performance in the market. Combining project-based inquiry, a gap analysis of industry specific material ESG issues, and a comprehensive review of the practices of industry peers allows you to understand what ESG factors have significant impacts on your ESG Risk Rating score and provides assessments on what your industry peers are doing to perform better.
Why Benchmarking is Important?
By examining the programs, policies, and processes adopted by industry peers and competitors, businesses can better understand what gaps they have in their ESG Risk Rating.
