“Fifteen years ago the assessment was relatively simple but that has evolved into a much deeper and more sophisticated methodology. Since 2001, the ESG areas covered by the criteria have grown from just three Themes* at launch to 14 today. In turn, the number of indicators assessed has grown from around 40 to a model which now comprises over 300 data points, which are applied according to the industrial sectors and countries in which a company operates.”
