ESG Policies: Key Success Factor for Your Sustainable Management
ESG policies are an important success factor for your sustainable management and belong to the so-called “Own Laws”. Companies not only have to act in compliance with legal regulations, but also meet the expectations of the capital market. We support companies in creating and implementing ESG policies.

Importance of ESG Policies for Rating Agencies
ESG policies are also an important topic from the perspective of rating agencies. A well-founded ESG policy is a crucial factor for a good rating result. We support companies in developing and implementing ESG policies to improve their sustainability performance and optimize their rating results.
The most important policies for companies from the perspective of ESG rating agencies are the code of conduct or code of ethics, as well as the environmental, social, and governance policies (ESG policies). Within these categories, various policies are evaluated, such as marketing policies that relate to the ethical marketing of products and services, or EHS policies that relate to environment, health, and safety. Supplier policies also play an important role in the evaluation of ESG performance, as they relate to the standards and practices that companies apply when selecting and monitoring their suppliers. Other important policies include diversity and inclusion policies, ethics and compliance policies, as well as labor and human rights policies. The implementation and effectiveness of these policies are examined by ESG rating agencies as part of their evaluations and are incorporated into the overall assessment of a company’s ESG performance.
