How are IBISWorld’s ESG Risk Scores calculated?

Our ESG Risk Scores are derived from a combination of quantitative data and qualitative research. Analysts assess nearly 30 variables that are grouped into 15 main factors. Quantitative data from sources like government agencies and Transparency International, along with qualitative insights from industry associations, are incorporated into the scores. Among the 15 main factors we score, those with stringent regulations (e.g. energy efficiency, waste management, greenhouse gas emissions, etc.) may be weighted higher.
