Kairos and Sustainalytics: a collaboration that aims at sustainability

29 October 2020

Kairos has been collaborating with Sustainalytics, a global leader in ESG research and ratings, since 2019, and the two firms are reinforcing their relationship to develop Kairos’ new ESG products.

In particular, Kairos uses Sustainalytics ESG ratings, which measure a company’s exposure to relevant industry-specific ESG risks and how a company manages them.

This multidimensional method of measurement combines the concepts of management and exposure to arrive at a total score or ESG risk rating, comparable across all sectors.

Sustainalytics ESG risk ratings provide a quantitative measure and distinguish between five levels of risk: negligible, low, medium, high and severe.

Kairos also receives Sustainalytics’ Controversies Research, Product Involvement Research, and Global Standards Screening service.

Sustainalytics is a Morningstar company, which therefore supports investors around the world in developing and implementing responsible investment strategies.

For more than 25 years, the firm has been at the forefront of developing high-quality, innovative solutions to meet the evolving needs of global investors.

Today, Sustainalytics, which has 17 offices globally and more than 700 employees (including more than 200 in-house analysts with multidisciplinary expertise across 42 sectors), works with hundreds of the world’s leading asset managers and pension funds that incorporate ESG and corporate governance information in their investment processes.
