Inrate increases coverage and is poised for growth with new global reach

Thursday, July 14, 2022, Zurich: Inrate, the recognized Swiss-based leader and pioneer in environmental, social and governance (ESG) ratings, research, and services, is poised for growth by expanding its coverage and enlarging its offering through its partnership with SG Analytics, a Global Insights and Analytics company and Inrate’s longstanding partner.

Inrate has been providing ESG services since 1991 and will now cover all liquid global markets, allowing clients to benefit from its ESG Impact Ratings, and ESG data such as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and climate data. To drive this global growth, Christophe Volonté, Head of Active Ownership since 2016, has been appointed to the position of CEO as of August 1, 2022, while Christoph Müller will assume the role of Delegate of the Board of Directors.

Christophe Volonté says, ”from the beginning, Inrate’s ambition was a sound understanding of sustainability. With our rating methodology based on scientific insights we can make a difference towards a more sustainable world. We can also support our clients with the regulatory challenges that aim to consider the impact of products and services on the society and the environment, such as the concept of double materiality. For that end, we will be growing our teams in Europe, the US, and India to meet the market demands and further fuel our growth”.

Christoph Müller, Delegate of the Board of Directors says, “run by passionate and committed ESG professionals, Inrate is a powerhouse of reliable data spanning nearly 30 years to feed into decision engines. Our ESG Impact Ratings (public and private companies, sovereigns, real estate), ESG data, reporting or consulting solutions, in addition to proxy voting and engagement services are the need of the hour for all global firms, and Inrate has been at the forefront of offering these.”
