Ratings

Showcase your commitment to your ESG obligations

Knowing how your programme fits against best practices is easy with an independent rating to assess your programme and market your compliance to your stakeholders

It is becoming a true badge of honour to have a strong ESG programme that has been validated by an independent third-party expert. Rather than a broad overall ‘ESG Rating’, Speeki has several Ratings products focused on smaller areas, e.g. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Preventing Bribery and Corruption, etc.

Case Study

Clients have told us consistently that a broad ESG rating provided by a ratings agency that was only focused on assessing their business for financial and investment purposes was of little, if any, value to the business

Our clients wanted a simple and effective way to know how each risk area of their programme was rated. Assessment by experts against known and respected international best practices is the only option to truly get value from a ratings process, identify gaps, and learn how to address them. More than just a marketing tool, it is a knowledge tool.

Results

Quick, simple, and provides expert guidance on gaps

More tailored to specific risk areas, resulting in better data and guidance

Designed by experts, which means the rating can be relied on and is respected

Situation or challenge

Our clients were constantly being approached by ratings agencies to complete an ESG rating. In most cases, the agency would not even consult the client, but use public information exclusively against unclear specifications and standards. These ratings were then published without the client's knowledge, support or endorsement. They were at the whim of agencies which might fail to do the right thing and apply correct specifications.

Solution

Our solution was to draft several ESG ratings on specific risk areas, allowing clients to complete a survey questionnaire, upload documentation, receive an assessment by experts, and get a rating. A specific risk area rating is more valuable, more accurate, and provides more insight.

Results

Our clients can now count on Speeki Ratings as a part of their review process – their monitoring and measuring – as well as getting the benefit of our expertise at a lower price than a consulting project. They can also develop their programmes and obtain a rating annually to drive improvement across each of their major risk areas. The Speeki Ratings are valuable and marketable as a driver for improvement in the ESG space.
