RepRisk reaches new milestone of evaluating more than 150,000 companies on ESG risks
# Leading ESG data science firm now analyzes more than 150,000 public and private companies across markets and sectors
RepRisk, a leading ESG data science firm combining machine learning and human intelligence, announced today that they have hit a new milestone with analyzing more than 150,000 companies on ESG risks.
RepRisk’s dataset, delivered via their flagship solution, the RepRisk ESG Risk Platform, as well as via data feeds, is the world’s most comprehensive and daily-updated dataset on ESG and business conduct risks. The dataset extends across private and public companies – large and small caps, all sectors and all countries, including emerging and frontier markets. More than 350 clients globally use RepRisk’s data for due diligence and risk management across their operations, business relationships, and investments.
“We like to say that the word ‘coverage’ doesn’t exist at RepRisk,” said Nicole Streuli-Fürst, Executive Vice President, Operations and Research at RepRisk. “Any company or infrastructure project exposed to ESG risks is captured in our research process. The launch of our dataset occurred in 2006 when a client asked us to compile a list of about 100 companies exposed to severe ESG risks. We then devised the systematic and transparent methodology we still use to this day and which is unique in the industry. Over the last two years, our list has grown by 50,000 companies and we couldn’t be more thrilled about the growth trajectory of our dataset and for the ESG industry as a whole.”
The size of RepRisk’s dataset is enabled by AI and machine learning technology that screens 90,000+ public sources and stakeholders in 20 major business languages for ESG risks on a daily basis. A team of 85+ analysts curates and analyzes the information according to a rules-based methodology, which adds depth and relevance to the data.
Founded in 1998 and headquartered in Switzerland, RepRisk is a pioneer in ESG data science that leverages the combination of AI and machine learning with human intelligence to systematically analyze public information and identify material ESG risks. RepRisk’s flagship product, the RepRisk ESG Risk Platform, is the world’s largest and most comprehensive due diligence database on ESG and business conduct risks, with expertise in 23 languages and coverage of 150,000+ public and private companies and 40,000+ infrastructure projects.
