Assess a company’s exposure to controversies
Sustainalytics' Controversies Research is based on the most up-to-date information from a wide range of reliable international and local news and NGO sources. Controversies are rated on a scale from one to five with five denoting controversies that have the most severe impact to stakeholders and the environment, leading to business risks to companies. This rating is accompanied by an in depth qualitative assessment by the analyst. Each controversy rating also includes an outlook, which indicates the direction of a future rating change (positive, negative or neutral) within a two-year period based on the company’s behavior and external circumstances.
