First update of Vigeo Eiris Emerging Market 70 Ranking
The International Network for Research into Organisations and Sustainable Development (RIODD) organizes its 12th Congress in Paris (University Paris Dauphine) in October 2017. The objective of this award is to promote the best thesis in social sciences with regards to companies' social and societal responsibility and/or sustainable development.
The 70 selected companies are listed in 16 countries, belong to 31 different sectors (Mining & Metals, Technology-Hardware, Energy, Electricity & Gas, Utilities, etc…) and employ more than 2 million people. Their global scores are the highest of their universe in the fields of human rights, respect of labour practices and promotion of human capital, environmental protection, corporate governance, business ethics and contributions to social and economic development in their territories of operations.
This ranking allows for an advanced selection of issuers from emerging markets based on their ESG performance and independently from the volatility caused by their inclusion in the investment universes defined by the principal index providers.
