The ISS ESG Corporate Rating evaluates the sustainability performance of companies in the areas of environment, social and governance (so-called ESG criteria). About one third of the rating criteria are fully industry-specific.
The rating has an absolute best-in-class approach: prime status is awarded to companies that achieve the defined sustainability requirements (prime threshold) of ISS ESG for a specific industry in the ISS ESG Corporate Rating. The decile rank indicates performance relative to the industry in addition to the overall rating. A decile rank of 1 indicates high relative performance, while a 10 indicates low relative performance.
