The Yearbook is based on results from the CSA. With over 2.4 million data points on the most financially material ESG criteria in each industry, the Yearbook continues to be a comprehensive guide to the strongest performing, largest companies in the world. This year, the Yearbook awards 236 medals to those companies achieving the best sustainability performance compared to peers in their respective industries.
The table below highlights the progress made by companies in Emerging Market (EM) countries, as the only region with an increase in both the number of companies included in The Sustainability Yearbook 2019, and in the number of medals awarded, year-on-year.
The SAM brand is a familiar name from our past, and is now designated for distinct activities of RobecoSAM which specialize in providing ESG data, ratings, and benchmarking. The use of the CSA data by S&P Dow Jones Indices (S&P DJI) for well-established indices such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices and others is a significant reason for re-introducing the SAM brand. Having these activities under the SAM brand increases their prominence reflecting the growing interest from the market in these offerings. It also allows for broader use of the CSA results by S&P DJI and emphasizes the objectivity of the CSA process, making a clear distinction from asset management, in line with the European Benchmarks Regulation.Read more on the SAM brand
