"Sustainable investments and sustainability ratings promote responsible company management"
oekom research publishes study on the impact of sustainable investments and sustainability ratings on companies – results of a global corporate survey supported by Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and the German Global Compact Network
Sustainable investments and sustainability ratings are an important lever for motivating companies to make a greater commitment to sustainable development. For almost two-thirds of the companies surveyed by oekom research, requests from sustainability rating agencieswere a decisive factor in prompting them to tackle the issue of sustainability. Enquiries from sustainability analysts influence the overall strategy of one in three of the companies surveyed and the sustainability strategies of two-thirds of companies. Thirty per cent of the companies surveyed state that their performance in sustainability ratings affects management remuneration. The most effective sustainable investment strategies are the best-in-class approach and shareholder engagement.
