As investor demand has grown to incorporate a broad range of ESG issues, ISS’ ESG ratings offer industry-leading research and detailed data with a broad range of delivery options. ESG ratings on companies, countries and green bonds provide investors with the in-depth insight to effectively incorporate sustainability in their investment decision. Our research is instrumental in helping investors minimize ESG risks, comply with evolving regulatory and stakeholder requirements and seize opportunities.

The presence of local and global teams ensure constant review of the ratings concept and overall relevant environmental, social and governance related topics.

Our ESG experts provide on-going monitoring and research on company practices, assessing information through numerous sources and following through with expert analysis and consultation. Analysts gather information through the media and other public sources, conduct interviews with stakeholders, and collect information on company policies and practices. Extensive company and stakeholder dialogue, coupled with strict verification, ensures objectivity and exhaustiveness of the research.

ISS ESG provides financial market participants, governments and universities with carbon and climate data, ratings, analytics, and advisory services across all investment classes. ISS ESG senior climate change experts in greenhouse gas accounting and transitional and physical climate risks continuously prepare and review methodology development. We also provide a wide coverage of 25000+ listed companies and issuers of corporate debt for carbon and climate data.

Effective impact investment strategies are needed to align investments with the UN SDG requirements. Obstruction to achieving the UN SDG objectives should be minimized and the resulting economic opportunities out of positive alignment can be seized. By being able to measure the impact, investments can actively support the transformation processes required to achieve these goals.

Helping Financial Advisors with Corporate Monitor

Corporate Monitor provides financial advisors with information on the ESG performance of Australian and New Zealand companies. Our research enables ESG analysis to become an accepted part of financial planning services. It uses a five-star rating system to assess ESG performance and identify best practice. Information is drawn from our global ESG data sets and simplified into short 2-3-page reports and includes an ESG news overview.
