EIRIS unveils sustainability ratings service

Responsible investment research provider EIRIS has launched a tool to allow the sustainability records of more than 3,000 companies to be assessed.

The EIRIS Sustainability Ratings service will use a range of environmental, social and governance (ESG) data points to offer investors a comprehensive assessment  of businesses’ sustainability performance.

Ratings will be presented in a clear A to E scale, alongside EIRIS’ assessment of a company’s sustainability impacts and its analysis of its management’s response to ESG risks.

Peter Webster, executive director at EIRIS, says: “With the launch of EIRIS Sustainability Ratings we are combining almost 30 years’ research experience, thinking and intelligence on ESG issues together to provide the definitive guide to corporate sustainability performance for investors.”
