ESG considerations are increasingly necessary to mitigate risks and power corporate value drivers. In this context, companies globally are resorting to the essential intelligence required to embed sustainability into their DNA.
On April 22, S&P Global announced the launch of its new ESG and sustainability organization: S&P Global Sustainable1. This new centralized group represents S&P Globals's integrated sustainability offerings. It brings together resources and full product suite of benchmarking, analytics, evaluations, and indices that provide customers with a 360-degree view to help achieve their sustainability goals.
Sustainable1 is powered by a robust universe of data, including the Corporate Sustaibability Assessment (CSA), widely recognized as one of the most advanced ESG scoring methodologies. The CSA is based on a questionnaire that participating companies answer yearly, thus complemeting their publicly available reporting with additional information on ESG actions to paint their full sustainability picture. Companies can then leverage the CSA process and results as a reference tool, both internally with their colleagues and subject matter experts and externally with their peers via the ESG Benchmarking services. In this way, the CSA now forms the basis of corporate engagement on ESG in the new S&P Global Sustainable1 organization.
To learn more about the CSA, watch this webinar held in collaboration with the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). It features S&P Global Sustainable1's Head of Corporate Enagement, Robert Dornau, and a long-time CSA participant, who give insights into what the assessment is, why your company should do it and what are the commitments and benefits of active participation.
