Redpoint has developed the Redpoint Rating, a proprietary sustainability rating that is a measure of a firm’s investment quality based on economic, environmental, social and corporate governance (‘EESG’) factors.
ESG investing considers a firm’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies. Favourable ESG policies focus on all stakeholders who have a role in a firm’s success. Stakeholders include management, labour, the environment and society at large in addition to shareholders.
Incorporating this stakeholder perspective by embedding ESG considerations allows us to distinguish among firms that are seen as ESG “Leaders” relative to those that are ESG “Laggards” as outlined below.
We assess companies using numerous ESG metrics with a focus on those practices which we believe are more aligned with a company's future financial performance. These include metrics such as product innovation (environmental), workforce health and safety (social) and shareholder rights (governance).
For further details the individual EESG criteria that make up the Redpoint Rating please contact us.
