Sustainability Intelligence is an independent provider of research and rating services specialising in corporate sustainability assessments and responsible investing.
We analyse and evaluate the sustainability performance of companies and provide guidance to investors, foundations and businesses wishing to incorporate economic, ecological, social and ethical factors into their investment decision-making process. As a research institute, we are particularly committed to spreading public awareness on sustainability issues and sharing our knowledge.
Our sustainability ratings are based on the scientifically proven E²SE® method.
The E²SE® method was developed by Sustainability Intelligence in collaboration with the Technical University of Munich with the aim of establishing a truly holistic approach to sustainability analysis. Unlike other rating agencies, which mostly apply criteria-based or negative exclusion strategies, Sustainability Intelligence pursues an integrated, investigative approach, resulting in a far more nuanced picture of the companies' sustainability performance.
The sustainability rating of Sustainability Intelligence identifies the actual potential and action fields within our sustainability activities and reporting. In contrast to other rating companies, it goes beyond a superficial perspective.

During the presentation of the results, the impression was confirmed that the individualised questions are based on a detailed analysis of our business model. The sustainability assessment of Sustainability Intelligence thus achieves a significantly higher level of quality than that of comparable rating companies.
Patrick Kiss, Head of Investor & Public Relations Deutsche EuroShop AG
The basis of what we do is the deep conviction that holistic sustainable conduct is essential for ensuring the well-being and quality of life of present and future generations.
This conviction is supported and implemented enthusiastically by all of our employees in their daily work. Investors should use the levers available to them to hold companies accountable and promote sustainable and socially responsible business behaviour. At the same time, the evaluation of sustainability can provide useful insights into the likely resilience of companies in dealing with future challenges.
