Features of ESG Impact Ratings

Discover ratings in line with evolving regulatory expectations

Inrate’s ratings incorporated impact materiality before the EU’s double materiality made its wave in the market. Our ratings are focused on assessing real impact and thereby align with the expectations of regulations such as the EU Taxonomy, CSRD, SFDR, and EU Green Bonds Standards.

Reduce Susceptibility to Greenwashing

Inrate's methodology delves deeper than sustainability disclosures. We combine a data-driven analysis of their real-world impact along with a rigorous assessment of a company's sustainability policies and procedures, empowering investors to avoid securities engaged in greenwashing.

Uncover the real impact of your portfolio

Inrate’s ratings are based on uncovering real impact, unbiased by corporate disclosures. With its multidimensional assessment model relying on alternative data sources and proprietary assessment models, Inrate uncovers impact dimensions that are otherwise hidden in your portfolio.

Our Offerings

Public Companies

A growing coverage of 10,000+ public companies representing over 99% of listed market capitalization ensures comprehensive portfolio alignment. Overall ratings and composites enable granular insights.

Private Companies

Inrate’s methodology adapts seamlessly to private assets. By focusing on the sustainability impact of a company’s business activities more than their ESG disclosures, we ensure our assessments are effective for early, growth stage and mature companies.

Sovereigns and Sub-Sovereigns

Coverage of sovereigns and sub-sovereigns supports investors to evaluate sustainability performance beyond corporate-issued securities. Investors can evaluate sovereign securities based on topics such as press freedom, UN sanctions, EU Embargos, etc.
