The ESG Ratings Working Group facilitates an open dialogue directly with select ESG research firms. Its purpose is to help members address their challenges and improve the flow of ESG data from their companies to investors, creditors, insurers and lenders.

The working group offers access to ESG-focused research, tools, collaboration with ERM experts and peer-to-peer sharing.

Members gain insights into the complex ESG ecosystem, development tools for more efficient and effective ESG ratings/reporting strategy, and the ability to advocate – both individually and with peers. The group shares innovations, risks and opportunities in an accessible and inclusive environment, with members gaining thought leadership influence and the opportunity to contribute to research.
