For the 20th anniversary of RobecoSAM’s proprietary research tool, the Corporate Sustainability Assessment, the Yearbook reveals that more than 2,600 companies were assessed. It includes the top 15% of companies in each industry.

With over 2.4 million data points on the most financially material ESG criteria in each industry, the yearbook continues to be a comprehensive guide to the strongest performing, largest companies in the world. That information is then integrated into the investment process at both RobecoSAM and Robeco.

RobecoSAM has also reverted to its SAM brand for activities specializing in providing ESG data, ratings, and benchmarking. Founded in 1995, RobecoSAM is an investment specialist focused exclusively on sustainability investing. RobecoSAM also runs the proprietary Country Sustainability Ranking focusing on the ESG credentials of nations.
