About the risk assessment of Sustainalytics

An ESG risk rating assesses a company’s exposure to and management of the ESG issues that are considered most material for that company based on its subindustry. The methodology evaluates the degree of a company’s unmanaged material ESG risk. The more of this risk that is unmanaged, the higher the ESG risk rating score.
