|As outlined in our Methodology section, RepRisk tracks 27
environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, and in this way,
detects criticism of companies and projects globally.
RepRisk's scope for ESG issues includes comprehensive coverage of environmental and social themes such as environmental footprint and climate change, human rights and community relations, labor conditions and employee relations. Additionally, RepRisk covers corporate governance issues including corruption, bribery, money-laundering, fraud, tax evasion and anti-competitive practices.
The collected information is systematically evaluated, complemented with abstracts, and linked to the corresponding issues, sectors, countries and other related entities. This evaluation is performed by risk analysts in accordance with established international standards, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ILO Conventions, the UN Convention Against Corruption, the Equator Principles, World Bank Group Performance Standards and Environmental, Health and Safety Guidelines, and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. This ensures the consistent classification, interpretation, and retrieval of information from the RepRisk database.
|In particular, all
principles of the UN Global Compact are addressed and specifically
matched to our Scope chart.
The United Nations Global Compact (UNGC or UN Global Compact) is a strategic initiative whose purpose is to encourage businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies by aligning their operations, strategies and policies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.
