information for... non-governmental organisations (NGOs)
Many non-governmental organisations (NGOs) collaborate with companies and actively seek out sponsors and donors. The issue here for NGOs is deciding which companies they can work with. Should an NGO working primarily in the climate protection field accept donations from an oil company, or a cancer research organisation collaborate with a tobacco company? These are just a couple of striking examples highlighting the reputational risks facing NGOs in this area. It is therefore important to exclude unsuitable corporate partners or specifically to seek out suitable companies. Moreover, larger NGOs, in particular, also have short- and medium-term capital investments which need to be invested in line with the organisation’s mission. Here, too, a key task is to identify those issuers of shares and bonds which are a suitable match for the organisation. Based on our ratings of over 3,800 companies and 57 countries, together with our extensive expertise in evaluating the social and environmental risks of such issuers, oekom research is able to support NGOs in identifying suitable partners and capital investments:
We offer a variety of tools which you can use to check whether or not a company would make a suitable partner or donor. These include, for example:
oekom Rating Reports
oekom Industry Reports
Speciific due diligence analyses
From making an inventory of current investments to defining a sustainability concept and putting together an investment universe, we can help you make a capital investment that takes into account the values and aims of your organisation.
