Vigeo Eiris - Sustainability Rating

Data category


Brief description of the data offering

We provide unsolicited and solicited assessments to issuers as a core offer that we complement with other analyses to perfectly fit our clients’ needs:

  • Detailed assessments, sector reports and detailed benchmarks to facilitate continuous improvement from an ESG standpoint.
  • To be completed, if our client wants to leverage on its ESG performance, by an additional Sustainability Rating report to be shared in full outside the company and a controversies’ analysis for a better reputation monitoring.

Where and how do you source your data?

Vigeo Eiris only uses public information for its research products. The use of confidential information is prohibited. We use information from corporate reporting such as Annual Reports, Sustainability Reports, 10Ks etc. We also collect information directly from companies:

  • Via our proprietary VE Connect© platform. This platform provides them with transparent access to their research frameworks and allows them to integrate responses in a precise fashion. Information provided through this platform is not used if it is labelled as confidential.
  • Through management meetings to grasp more insights on a company’s strategy and non-confidential information, but nonetheless unpublished and still relevant, from an ESG perspective.

Who are the data users?

The data derived from our unsolicited ESG assessments is used by our global client base of investors for a range of purposes that include: portfolio analysis and reporting, portfolio alignment, thematic index and fund development, best in class and exclusion strategy development, and identification of investment opportunities aligned with the energy transition. The data can also be used by academic institutions for research and analysis purposes. 

The solicited Sustainability Ratings we provide are used by the rated companies for continuous improvement purposes as well as for funding purposes for non-green/social bond issuances, for Sustainability-Linked Loans, within answers to RFPs, and to support IPOs or M&A deals.

What are the key attributes that differentiates the data you offer?

We differentiate ourselves by the stance we take in our approach: the high engagement we offer to issuers, in particular, through the management meetings we propose as well as by the access to issuers’ analysts we enable through the year. 

We also stand apart by the level of details we provide when rating companies and local authorities, and the focus we also provide on key topics such as environmental and social impacts as well as ESG risks.
