Identifying exposure to material sustainability issues

Although companies around the world are steadily improving their sustainability management, their association with issues such as water pollution, carbon emissions, labour rights and corruption vary significantly across industries.

According to Verisk Maplecroft, the onus is increasingly on business to minimise impacts on stakeholders and the environment in which they operate.

“Regulators, business leaders, consumers and investors alike want to be certain their operations are not linked to ESG violations,” says Stefan Sabo-Walsh, Head of Value Chains at Verisk Maplecroft. “This has intensified the need for third-party, unbiased risk assessments which accurately and objectively identify and rank ESG risks across a wide variety of business functions.”

The Industry Risk Analytics blend Verisk Maplecroft’s locational risk assessment data with industry specific risk scores to provide a transparent view of the most material risks associated with an organisation’s operations, supply chain or investment portfolio.

In providing evidence-based adjustment scores for 74 industries, this new dataset allows users to build a comprehensive understanding of their industries' ESG impact, alongside the risk posed by an industry to a country’s sustainability performance.
