Corporate Sustainability Assessment

S&P Global's Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) is an assessment of the company's sustainability performance. It results in a total ESG score (0-100 points): a weighted average score resulting from the industry-specific assessment across ± 20-25 governance/economic, environmental and social criteria. 

Apply the Corporate Sustainability Assessment as an engine for your sustainability performance: Get the most out of your efforts by using the CSA as a third-party assessment on non-financial performance to benchmark with industry peers, identify gaps and track year-on-year progress – with the ultimate goal of applying it as an engine for your sustainability program.
