RepRisk is a leading business intelligence provider specialized in dynamic ESG risk analytics and metrics.
RepRisk harnesses a proprietary, systematic framework that combines cutting-edge technology with hands-on human intelligence in 15 languages to deliver curated data on a daily basis.
In the landscape of available ESG information, RepRisk takes a unique approach to assessing risk: our research focuses on capturing and analyzing data from media, stakeholders, and other public sources external to the company. This insight 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.
We believe that corporate responsibility goes hand-in-hand with sound financial and reputational risk management, operational excellence, and profitable growth in the medium and long term.
RepRisk has been recognized as meeting the Gold Standard in Deep Data Delivery. The Deep Data Delivery Standards were created as a public good that any asset manager or asset owner is permitted to use in contracting third-party data providers.
