Vigeo Eiris has developed its own framework and methodology to assess the commitments, performance and CSR risk-related mitigation abilities of companies, which includes more than 330 indicators.
These indicators cover the requirements of the main international frameworks and guidelines on CSR. In addition, Vigeo Eiris takes into account sectoral guidelines and indicators related to specific ESG issues.
As part of our framework, we systematically establish a materiality matrix that combines all stakeholders’ legitimate interests and expectations, with companies risks and opportunities for each of the 38 ESG factors under our review and ratings.
We weight our criteria by undertaking an assessment of three elements:
- the nature of the stakeholder’s expectations,
- their vulnerability level and
- the potential risks and opportunities for companies.
