Maximise your ESG ratings

Home > How we can help you > Maximise your ESG ratings

ESG ratings are comprised of a set of scores given to companies based on an assessment of their approach to managing Environmental, Social & Governance factors and rely heavily on the quality and comprehensiveness of sustainability reporting.

ESG scores and underlying data are used by investors to inform investment decision-making and for the selection of the investible universe for ESG-themed indices and funds.


Managing your ESG ratings and related controversies can be resource intensive and oftentimes challenging as the methodologies underpinning them vary greatly, often causing confusion and uncertainty for Sustainability Officers.

Leaders Arena has an experienced ESG Ratings team dedicated to helping you eliminate reporting gaps, maximise your ESG scores and respond to ESG-related controversies. Our unique services support companies to identify the most impactful ESG rating agencies according to their shareholder base, reputational value and strategic value. We do this by helping companies prioritise the most relevant ratings, carry out an efficient and effective ESG data verification process, and help to identify areas for future improvements to these ratings.

"Leaders Arena’s ESG Ratings Gap Analysis has provided us with an actionable list of Sustainability reporting improvements which is helping us maintain our leadership, maximise our ESG ratings, and continue to attract ESG-oriented capital."
