Does Bigger Mean Better?

By Bahar Gidwani
Blog

Do bigger companies get better ESG ratings than small ones?  We believe the answer is “no.”  This seems true across a wide range of companies, whether one measures size by revenue or by market capitalization (a proxy for enterprise value).  Our result indicates that small companies can and should expect to be able to equal or outperform their bigger rivals on environment, social, and governance (ESG) issues.

ESG Coverage Is Improving

Blog

We recently reviewed the ESG coverage status for the 8,686 companies in the MSCI ACWI (All Country World Index).  The ACWI is a popular benchmark for many investors, because it includes approximately 85% of the global opportunities for equity investment.  We felt it would be useful to see how much ESG information is currently available on the companies on this type of broad index.

CSRHub - What's Changed After Ten Years of CSR Ratings: Part One

Blog

In 2008 CSRHub began measuring performance in corporate social responsibility (CSR). Using ten years of history, we are now starting to answer questions such as: 

  • Has CSR performance improved over time?
  • What area of CSR is improving the most?
  • Is the universe of companies for which ratings are available expanding beyond the large public corporations?
  • How strong is the alignment between CSR performance and company CSR reporting on CSR?

Steady Overall Improvement
