IdealRatings ESG Scores and Ratings Data Set, provides an overall view on global issuers’ sustainability performance through their overall ESG scores and ratings which help investors identify best-in class, with potential over the long-term and bottom performers.

IdealRatings determines an issuer’s ESG rating by researching and documenting answers to a series of qualitative questions (or inputs) for each of the three pillars (E, S and G). There are over 200 inputs captured during the research process. These inputs are categorized under KPIs which receive a score based on the sum of the inputs’ weights. Some of the inputs are estimated.

KPIs are reflected under its relevant pillar. Each pillar has a maximum score of 100, and the weight each KPI contributes to an issuer’s overall pillar score is based on IdealRatings’ industry materiality assessment. The sum of these KPIs provides a total score for every pillar. Total score of all pillars becomes the issuer’s IdealRatings ESG score, which corresponds to a letter grade. IdealRatings ESG Scores range between 0 - 300, which corresponds to rating brackets ranging from CC-AAA.
