In the landscape of available ESG information, RepRisk takes a unique approach to assessing risk. Its research focuses on capturing and analyzing data from media, stakeholders, and other public sources external to the company. With a proprietary, systematic framework that combines cutting-edge technology with hands-on human intelligence in 15 languages RepRisk delivers dynamic and curated risk information. ESG issues have evolved from tangential importance to material relevance: how a company manages ESG issues is now seen as directly linked to its operational excellence and social license to operate. This insight from sources external to the company helps balance and substantiate the information provided by the company itself, and helps assess whether a company’s intention – policies, processes, and commitments – translates into practice.
