RepRisk’s unique event- and issues-driven methodology captures ESG risk for public and private companies of any size, in every sector and location, including emerging and frontier markets. Over 220,000 companies and 60,000 infrastructure projects are mapped to 28 ESG issues and 73 ESG topics based on RepRisk’s research scope in accordance with the key international standards on ESG and business conduct such as the UNGC Principles.
RepRisk’s ESG risk metrics and underlying scores systematically flag and monitor ESG and business conduct risks, as well as violations of internal policies and international standards across an organization’s own operations and within its supply chains. Underlying severity and source influence scores provide additional insights. RepRisk’s proprietary risk metrics and analytics are updated daily, i.e., whenever a new risk incident occurs. Data history spans back to January 2007 to provide an unbroken timeseries with more than 15 years of data.
RepRisk’s approach offers an outside-in perspective to assess a company's actual on-the-ground performance, intentionally excluding self-disclosed company information. RepRisk combines machine learning with human analysis in 23 languages to translate big data into curated and actionable research and metrics using a proprietary, rules-based business intelligence methodology. More than 100,000 media, stakeholder, and other third-party sources on the local, national, and international level, are screened daily.
Clients include the world’s leading institutions, infrastructure investors, corporates, governments, and non-profits, with RepRisk data helping with early detection and identification of risks within operations and across supply chains.
