Press Release - 11/12/2017
Vigeo Eiris welcomes new investor initiative calling for all issuers to publish their ESG ratings
The move represents a significant step towards standardising how issuers communicate their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) rating, and demonstrates signatories’ recognition of the value of ESG in financial and investment decision making.
The initiative recognises the value of risk and sustainability analyses for both issuers and investors, and gives a strong signal in favour of the growth of sustainable and responsible finance in France and Europe.
As an ESG rating agency Vigeo Eiris welcomes the initiative, which will create a new awareness of the responsibilities of both issuers and investors. Building on our experience, independence, the quality of our research, the professionalism of our teams, and our long-standing relationships with companies and investors, Vigeo Eiris intends to meet the challenge of the future of ESG rating and will act as a lead partner in these developments both in Europe and internationally.
