Raw ESG data is used as the primary source of our quantitative ESG rating system so-called AGIR. This data is then aggregated according to out GREaT approach for generating scores for 4.800 issues. We use scores from 2 rating agencies. We also use raw data for feeding into our Energy Transition Reporting tool (co2 emissions, revenues generated from coal activities) and to identify controversial activities.
In our rating tool, RI analysts can adjust ratings after meeting with companies, or controversies (regulatory changes, incidents, statements from executives, surveys conducted by NGOs or trade unions, etc.) leading to upgrades or downgrades. The objective is to increase responsiveness in our rating system.
