ESG Rating Management

Crucial information flow to the capital market

Today, ESG factors have a significant influence on the economic success of companies, which makes them a key factor in investment decisions: companies without a convincing ESG rating are avoided by investors and have higher refinancing costs. The basis for a good rating is the systematic management of sustainability opportunities and risks. However, a deep understanding of how ESG ratings work and their thematic scope as well as a professional communication with ESG rating agencies have also become important requirements for capital market-oriented companies.

Our team combines both decades of experience in leading ESG rating agencies and broad sustainability expertise. Together with you, we professionalize your ESG rating management.

We support you in the following areas:

  • Background knowledge on the ESG rating market and on how investors use such ratings

  • Insight into methodologies and content-related requirements of ESG ratings

  • Preparation for and processing of rating requests

  • Advice on the further development of your sustainability management as a basis for rating improvements
