RepRisk Scores Disaggregate ESG Risk Factors

Technology provider RepRisk has unveiled its Due Diligence Scores, a new service designed to assess firms’ specific risk factors including biodiversity and human rights on a scale from 0 to 100. According to RepRisk, the disaggregated scores will empower decision-makers including investors to pinpoint risk more precisely than existing combined ESG ratings. Users will be able to either select from a range of ready-to-use packages of risk factors or customise their own set from more than 200 individual scores to align with specific risk priorities. The scores can be combined to focus on particular pillars – environmental, social or governance – as well as specific frameworks and regulations, such as the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation or the German Supply Chain Act. They can also be used individually to target themes such as human rights and biodiversity to climate and greenwashing. The launch comes on the heels of the EU’s final sign-off on the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive, which requires corporates and financial institutions to take responsibility for environmental and human rights in their operations and supply chains. The Due Diligence Scores are currently updated on-demand, weekly or monthly, moving to daily updates in September. RepRisk’s ESG risk database covers 260,000+ companies globally.
