ESG Rating Disagreement and Stock Returns

A new working paper with the collaboration of our Board of Experts member Prof. Dr Philipp Krüger (University of Geneva) proves that Inrate's ESG impact ratings are unique. While our competitors' ratings show high correlations with each other, there is little correlation with our sustainability rating. The difference is probably that we not only assess management systems (Corporate Social Responsibility, CSR), but also the environmental and social impacts of production and products along the entire product life cycle. For example, despite good corporate governance (CSR), oil companies will never receive a good ESG impact rating from us.
