RepRisk is an ESG risk database that helps to systematically screen and monitor companies’ portfolios of clients, investments and suppliers, and flag those companies with high ESG risk exposure. The tool systematically captures and analyzes adverse ESG and business conduct data, retrieved from media, stakeholders and other public resources, that can have a reputational, compliance, and financial impact on a company or project. Daily, the tool screens more than 90,000 sources in 20 languages by combining artificial and human intelligence to identify and assess risks early at the local, regional, and international level. Additional solutions to measure individual risks are available.

Tool Outcome

RepRisk provides research, analytics, and metrics on currently more than 125,000 public and private companies, as well as more than 30,000 infrastructure projects worldwide, thereby informing a broad set of interested stakeholders about the ESG-risk performance of these companies and projects. RepRisk provides different analysis: the RepRisk Index is a quantitative measure (0 to 100) of companies’ or projects’ ESG risk exposure; the RepRisk Rating consists in a letter rating (AAA to D) facilitating benchmarking and ESG integration; the RepRisk UNGC Violator Flag identifies companies with a high (potential) risk of violating one or more of the UN Global Compact Principles; the RepRisk Violator Index serves to monitor individual ESG policies of companies.
