ESG Score

Measuring how well companies are managed

The ESG Score identifies sustainable companies that are better positioned to outperform over the long term, based on the principles of financial materiality. When computing the ESG Score of a company, the algorithm will only use information that significantly helps explain future risk-adjusted performance.

Materiality is applied by over-weighting features with higher materiality, and rebalancing these weights on a rolling quarterly basis.

GC Score

Assessing companies for increased reputational risk

Arabesque S-Ray analyses companies based on the four core principles of the United Nations Global Compact (GC): human rights, labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption. With more than 12,000 corporate signatories from over 160 countries, the Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. It calls on companies and stakeholders to conduct business responsibly, and to pursue opportunities that advance sustainable development goals. With Arabesque S-Ray, these principles are quantified for the first time, with the potential to inspire more companies to take shared responsibility and join the Global Compact in its commitment to achieve a sustainable and inclusive global economy.

Temperature Score

Evaluating a company’s contribution to the climate crisis

The Temperature Score is our proprietary metric that quantifies the extent to which corporations are contributing to the rise in global temperature through their greenhouse gas emissions.

Companies receive a near-term and long-term temperature score reflecting the temperature pathways they are on given their current behaviour.

Preferences Filter

Aligning investments with your values

At S-Ray we acknowledge that there is no one definition of sustainability for all - it means different things to different people, corporations, and countries. To that end, the new S-Ray Preferences Filter takes a flexible approach to screening that allows each and every individual to fine-tune the filter and align with their precise values.

The new Preferences Filter is the perfect compliment to the S-Ray ESG and GC scores, providing individuals with a full toolkit to incorporate both exclusionary screening and ESG integration into their responsible investing process.
