Investors are increasingly interested in environmentally and socially responsible investments and therefore not only take key financial indicators into account but also consider sustainability criteria when making investment decisions. The analyses and ratings produced by specialized sustainability rating agencies and index providers – which assess companies according to ESG criteria – provide guidance and serve as a point of reference in this context. Credit Suisse is assessed by a number of sustainability rating agencies.
