rating procedure

In order to build up a comprehensive picture of each company, our analysts collect the information relevant to the rating both from the companies being analysed and from independent experts. During the rating process, considerable importance is attached to cooperating extensively with the company under evaluation. The companies regularly have the opportunity to comment on and add to the findings. The work of ISS-oekom’s analysts is supported by a network of international experts from the fields of sustainability, human rights, employment rights and consumer protection:


Evaluation of company documentation such as annual and sustainability reports


Interviews with company representatives


Media screening


Interviews with independent experts


Assessments from independent specialists from NGO's governmental and public institutions, business associations, research institutes, consumer protection groups etc.
