Understanding and comparing ESG rating methodologies

A half-day classroom to understand how your ESG Frameworks are assessed by ESG rating industry leaders.

Virtual Classroom, 15 May 2024
Delivery schedule from 2.00pm to 5.30pm CET


ESG Ratings are designed to help investors understand ESG risks and opportunities and integrate ESG factors into their portfolio construction and management processes.

Long-term risk and return profile of institutional portfolios can be impacted by a number of ESG factors, from natural resource scarcity to changing governance standards, from global workforce management to the evolving regulatory landscape.

In this context, promoting globally consistent standards for assessing ESG risks and opportunities is the current challenge of regulators and ESG rating agencies, but one of the key ways to truly impact on portfolios alignment to net-zero.
