Advantage has developed its own environmental and social sustainability benchmarking method for corporations which correlates a number of performance and environmental indicators that reliably measure a company’s default risk, valuation and profitability.
This tool generates an “environmental rating” for each company, reducing complex and multi-dimensional environmental and social variables to a single indicator. This indicator is linked to financial variables and impacts on credit terms and company valuation.
Our method establishes a statistically and financially significant link between sustainability and the cost of debt.
