RELATED ISS ESG METHODOLOGIES
ESG Corporate Rating
The ESG Corporate Rating provides highly relevant, material and forward looking environmental, social and governance data and performance assessments. It considers approximately 100 indicators per industry. The ESG Corporate Rating applies a twelve-point grading system from A+ (excellent performance) to D- (poor performance).
ESG Corporate Rating Prime Status
Companies are awarded Prime Status if the overall ESG Corporate Rating letter grade meets or exceeds the industry-specific Prime threshold defined by ISS ESG’s Industry Classification Matrix. The Prime threshold reflects the overall magnitude of an industry’s risk exposure and footprint, and is C+ for the majority of industries, B- for high ESG risk industries and C for industries with a lower ESG risk profile
Governance QualityScore is a data-driven scoring and screening solution designed to enable quality reviews of corporate governance across four key areas: Board Structure, Compensation, Shareholder Rights, and Audit & Risk Oversight. Scores provide an indication of relative risk and range from 1 (low risk) to 10 (high risk).
SDG Impact Rating
The SDG Impact Rating provides a holistic measurement of a company’s positive or negative impact on the 17 SDGs across more than 100 data factors. Companies are rated on a scale of -10 (significant negative impact) to +10 (significant positive impact).
ESG Fund Rating
The ISS ESG Fund Rating provides a quick and effectively way to evaluate the environmental, social and governance performance of equity and bond funds globally. The key fund rating results are mainly derived from the pioneering ISS ESG Corporate and Country Ratings, which provide financially material and holistic sustainability signals on companies’ and countries’ current and future ESG performance. Additionally, results and data from the Governance Quality Score, Norm-Based Research, and Climate Solutions are reflected.
ISS ESG Cyber Risk Score
The ISS ESG Cyber Risk Score is a data-driven scoring and screening solution designed to enable objective assessment of the cyber risk posture of any company. The score represents the likelihood that an organization will suffer a material cyber incident within the next 12 months, expressed as a score on a scale from 300 (high risk) to 850 (low risk).
