Where and how do you source your data?

Inrate owns and manages a ESG proprietary database for more than 4’500 entities. The data originates from Inrate’s own primary research of publicly available information. The assessment  process is systematic and both quantitative and qualitative. We have a solid data process in place including a Product and Methodological Committee. There are quality controls on two levels: completeness and timeliness regarding the raw data (data team level), and second regarding classification and grades (analyst level). The rating is model based and sector specific. For screening controversies, we use as main sources NGO reports, search engine (e.g. factiva) and news. The different cases of controversial business practices involving companies are categorised and assessed by analysts and integrated into our ESG Impact Ratings.
