ESG Scoring Framework
At Alfred Berg, we are committed to generating long-term sustainable investment returns for clients, while having a positive impact on the environment, the economy and society.
We believe that environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations, when combined with traditional financial analysis, can help investors to understand a wider set of risks and opportunities and, in turn, make better-informed investment decisions.
Our proprietary ESG scoring framework quantifies these considerations. Specifically, it produces:
- A company-level score based on a firm’s performance on material ESG issues relative to peers.
- A global ESG score that aggregates the average ESG scores of the companies in a portfolio.
HOW WE ASSESS COMPANIES
We score more than 13 000 issuers of securities using a four-step process. The scores are made available internally to facilitate ESG integration, investment stewardship and more.
