Publication Date: March 1, 2018

Earlier this month, Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. (ISS) announced the launch of Environmental & Social QualityScore (E&S QualityScore), a new component of ISS' corporate profiling and scoring solution for institutional investors. According to ISS, the E&S QualityScore represents a data driven approach to measuring the quality of corporate disclosures on environmental and social issues. Broad topical areas include: management of environmental risks and opportunities; carbon and climate; waste and toxicity; human rights; labor, health, and safety; and stakeholder and society. ISS intends to include a company's top level score in the proxy research reports it prepares for clients, but states that the scores will not impact ISS proxy voting recommendations.
