Jointly developed by RobecoSAM and Robeco, the Country Sustainability Ranking is a comprehensive framework for analyzing countries’ ESG performance. By focusing on ESG factors such as aging, competitiveness and environmental risks – which are long term in nature – our country sustainability analysis offers a view into a country’s strengths and weaknesses that are not typically covered by rating agencies. Used in combination with standard sovereign bond ratings, RobecoSAM’s country ESG rankings can be a powerful tool to enhance risk analysis for government bonds, enabling investors to make better-informed investment decisions.
The Country Sustainability Ranking is updated semi-annually. Insights from ranking are then incorporated into the investment process for Robeco’s Government Bond Strategies, and are used to determine the country weights in the S&P ESG Sovereign Bond Index Family.
