Introducing our ESG score
The LGIM ESG Score has been created
- To incentivise companies to improve their ESG profile through a transparent methodology
- To improve market standards globally and monitor ESG developments across our investment universe
- To create investment solutions
Our methodology is based on a transparent framework to assess companies, in order to avoid creating an investment 'black box' and enhance the role of investors to reward and penalise companies based on clear and consistent global standards.
Our score is comprised of 34 ESG data points* that measure companies against what we believe are global minimum standards and were selected based on three guiding principles
Are companies in the investable universe reporting this information?
Is the information available in a numerical format to be included in the scores?
Is the data reported regularly to allow for comparison amongst all the relevant companies?
Each of the 34 data points are assessed and scored, creating a sub-score at the theme level. Individual themes are then aggregated to form the environmental, social, governance and transparency scores.
Companies' final ESG scores are presented between 0 and 100. A high scoring company will have on average, met or exceeded LGIM's global minimum standards for the factors under assessment. A company scoring 0 will have failed to meet most, if not all our expectations and represents a significant concern.
Scores are updated twice a year as of the last business day in March and September.
