oekom industry report

The importance of sustainability management to the economic success of a company, and thus to its shareholders and creditors, is an ongoing issue which is growing in significance. In its oekom Industry Reports, ISS-oekom therefore focuses in particular on the economic opportunities and risks associated with the ways in which companies are tackling the challenges of sustainable development. It documents and analyses 


how companies handle the industry-specific key sustainability issues identified by ISS-oekom,


selected individual industry rating results as well as country-specific risks and how these have changed over time,


the best and the most controversial companies in the industry

as well as examining numerous other aspects characterising the industry’s sustainability performance. In addition, the report gives an overview of all companies from the industry which were rated, together with their ratings and rankings.

The oekom Industry Report is aimed not only at companies looking to tackle the challenges of comprehensive sustainability management and to address the issue of where they stand within the industry, but also at institutional investors and asset managers who want to find out about the opportunities and risks of investing in the respective sector. 

ISS-oekom publishes regular Industry Reports of this kind on industries which are of particular interest from the sustainability point of view.
