  • Gain a deeper understanding of the potential reputational risk facing a company. The GC Score provides a normative assessment of each company based on the principles of the United Nations Global Compact (Human Rights, Labor Rights, Environment and Anti-Corruption).
  • Identify companies that are better positioned to outperform over the long run. The ESG Score is based on a sector specific analysis of each company’s performance on financially material environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues.
  • Assess how corporations report on greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to global temperature rise through the Temperature™ Score. All three scores can be used with the Preference Filter, which provides a better understanding of each company’s business activities through analysis of revenue streams.
