  • With markets demanding better ESG data to meet increasingly complex sustainability requirements, the ESG Performance Score is the most sophisticated new tool of its kind.

 

  • Covering nearly 10,000 companies globally, the ESG Performance Score provides in-depth, real- time insights into material areas of sustainability performance.

 

  • With a fully transparent methodology, the ESG Performance Score uniquely enables clients to click from each company’s score to raw data and source documentation, with point-in-time history for time series analyses.

 

ESG Book, a global leader in sustainability data and technology, released new analysis showing that financially material, industry-relevant ESG disclosure levels remain low, despite a widespread increase in overall sustainability reporting.

The research coincides with the launch of the firm’s new ESG Performance Score, a transparent, data- driven assessment of corporate sustainability performance inspired by International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) standards. Published in June 2023, the ISSB’s long-awaited new standards mark a significant global shift in financially relevant sustainability disclosure, and are seen as a new global baseline for capital markets.

ESG Book’s analysis reveals that European companies currently lead global peers on sustainability performance, led by corporations in France with an average ESG Performance Score of (54.9). By comparison, U.S.-based companies on average have a score of 50.1, with Japanese companies scoring on average 49.5.1
On a global scale, European corporations also demonstrate the highest levels of overall ESG disclosure, as the reporting landscape is rapidly shaped by emerging regulation including the EU Taxonomy and Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD). Recent ESG Book analysis revealed that worldwide ESG regulations have increased by 155 percent over the past decade.

However, while European companies perform strongly in the overall disclosure of ESG-based metrics, there is a noticeable drop in their reporting of industry-relevant sustainability data. This is information that is more likely to impact the enterprise value of a corporation, and is required by investors and financial institutions for more accurate insights into material areas of sustainability performance.
