Until 2020, the CSA was mostly aimed at a restricted number of DJSI-eligible companies and their stakeholders. Since taking over the ESG ratings and benchmarking arm from RobecoSAM at the end of 2019, S&P Global has widely extended the reach and application of the CSA. The CSA is now an even more elaborate process that is used to determine companies’ ESG Scores and, where applicable, inclusion in indices.
Reflected in the number of companies that are actively participating in the assessment, it is evident that more companies are seeing the value in participating in the CSA, with the participation rate doubling since 2020. Around 2,800 companies participated actively in the CSA 2022, up from 2,270 in the 2021, and 1,386 in 2020. In fact, participating companies now represent half of the global market capitalization, with the main participation from the Europe, the Middle East, and Africa region, followed closely by North America.
As a result, in 2022 over 11,000 companies have been invited to participate in the CSA, which are divided into distinct groups with different timelines. These companies are assessed based on public data or based on their active participation in the CSA.
