ESG with a
risk lens

Over a decade of deep domain expertise in ESG risks
Exclusively with an outside-in perspective to assess whether companies walk their talk

Born out of credit risk management, the purpose of RepRisk’s dataset is not to provide ESG ratings, but to systematically identify and assess material ESG risks. We have always taken an outside-in approach to ESG risks, by analyzing information from public sources and stakeholders and intentionally excluding company self-disclosures. It is now well-accepted that self-reported information is not reliable data – especially when it comes to risks.

Over a decade of experience has shown that RepRisk’s unique perspective serves as a reality check for how companies conduct their business around the world – do they walk their talk when it comes to human rights, labor standards, corruption, and environmental issues? This perspective, together with a transparent, rules-based methodology and daily updates, ensures that our clients have consistent, timely, and actionable data at their fingertips.

Combining the best of both worlds
AI and machine learning empower the size and scale of our dataset, while human intelligence adds depth and relevance

“We have set up our complete universe of portfolio companies to be monitored by RepRisk. To us, this is a great step forward in implementing ESG considerations in private markets, as we are able to monitor both the ESG issues of our portfolio companies as well as how the respective GP deals with these issues.”
