Positive Screening

The assessment of the social and environmental performance of a company as part of the Corporate Rating is carried out with the aid of over 100 social and environmental criteria, selected specifically for each industry, covering six areas:

 

Depending on the products and services it provides, each industry faces different social and environmental challenges. For this reason, oekom research makes around one-third of these criteria industry-specific. All criteria are individually weighted and evaluated and finally aggregated to yield an overall score.

The results provide a ranking of the companies examined within an industry, from which the leaders in that industry (those awarded “prime” status) are identified.

  

Exclusion Screening

No matter if a company is ranked as "Prime", the application of specific criteria may lead an ethical oriented investor to refrain from investing in a company. Therefore, oekom research carries out a comprehensive negative screening in a great number of ethical controversial business fields and practices for each company. The specifications of the negative screening are described in the following list:
