Update of the Vigeo Eiris Best Emerging Market Performers Ranking
On December 1st, 2017, Vigeo Eiris updated its Best EM Performers ranking. This ranking is now comprised of the 100 best performing companies listed on Developing markets and which social responsibility approaches are the most advanced in a reference universe of over 850 companies from 31 different countries.
The composition of this ranking is updated every six months, in June and December.
The companies selected in this review are listed in 19 countries, belong to 27 different sectors and employ more than 5 million people. Their global scores are the highest of their universe in the fields of human rights, decent employment practices, environmental protection, corporate governance, business ethics and contributions to social and economic development in areas where they operate.
This ranking highlights a selection of issuers from emerging markets based on their ESG performance and independently from the volatility of their affiliation to frontier zones defined by the major index providers.
The composition of this ranking is available in the tables below and on Vigeo Eiris’ website. It will be updated every six months.
The Equitics assessment model rates each company on nearly 330 indicators. No sectors are excluded per se. However, following a decision by Vigeo Eiris, companies that are the subject of controversy on critical issues involving social responsibility and that do not supply comprehensive public information on corrective measures taken or discussions they may have entered into with stakeholders regarding such controversies, are excluded.
