It's your Turn to Rate the Raters
In this final piece of Rate the Raters Phase 5, we publish the responses from a number of sustainability raters to a questionnaire we posed to them. We are doing this to promote greater transparency and to provide users – companies, investors and others – a better understanding of how these ratings work.
Since starting our Rate the Raters work in 2010, we have learned a great deal about ratings, and have seen a number of improvements. Yet, new ratings continue to pop up and it’s important that they consider how their ratings are advancing the corporate sustainability agenda, rather than adding additional burden and complexity to it.
We encourage our readers to review these responses through the lens of our methodology and engage the ratings organizations.
