General information on the CSA

The SAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) forms the foundation of integrating financially material sustainability information into investment decision. It allows to proactively engage companies on sustainability topics that drive business performance and help them manage long-term risks.

Sustainability challenges are shaping companies’ competitive landscape. Companies that take the lead in seizing opportunities and managing risks associated with these challenges are best-positioned to outperform their peers. The CSA evaluates companies’ quality of management and future performance potential. Sustainability integration forms the core of an ESG focused investment philosophy, and we are driven to help companies make it part of their corporate DNA.
