information for... sustainability management / companies
Integrating sustainability considerations into strategy and management systems is already routine in many companies. Their concerns here include tapping efficiency potential to the full, for example in the areas of energy and raw material consumption, increasing employee satisfaction and meeting the demands of a growing number of private and business clients. In addition, companies are jockeying for position in the growing competition to attract sustainability-oriented investors’ capital. When it comes to selecting a company’s own suppliers, sustainability criteria can also help to ensure that products supplied are of high quality in social and environmental terms and to avoid reputational risks. The political, social and market demands on sustainability management systems are constantly evolving.
Our ORBIT (oekom Responsibility Benchmarking & Information Tool) online database provides, among other things, direct access to the detailed information contained in oekom’s corporate ratings of over 3,800 companies (-> ORBIT Companies) and in our 57 country ratings (-> ORBIT Countries). ORBIT opens up new options for analysing your own company. By comparing your sustainability performance with that of your competitors, you can identify your company’s specific strengths and weaknesses.
Are you interested in receiving details of the ratings of individual competitors analysed by oekom research? We can provide you with reports on all companies and countries in the oekom universe, which will give you detailed insights into their rating by oekom research. -> Reports
Our analysts will help you identify risks that could arise as a result of a wide variety of different social and environmental factors. Our “Climate Change” and “Biodiversity” handbooks, for example, will enable you to analyse and evaluate the sector-specific risks that could arise for companies as a result of climate change and species extinction. oekom’s Emerging Markets Risk Assessment (EMRA®) describes and evaluates the current social and environmental situation in emerging and developing countries and helps you to manage the social and environmental risks of your involvement in these countries. -> Risk analyses
These offers are exclusively for the purpose of providing information about what we see as being current strengths and weaknesses. We purposely do not provide more extensive advice on steps to improve sustainability management, so as not to create any conflict between independent evaluation and fee-based consultation.
