RepRisk launches new feature: UN Global Compact Violator Flag
New flag helps risk managers, investment managers, and procurement professionals identify companies that have a risk of violating the UN Global Compact Principles
Zurich, Switzerland - October 25, 2017 - RepRisk, a leading research and business intelligence provider specializing in ESG and business conduct risks, is pleased to share that it has launched a new feature in its ESG Risk Platform: The RepRisk UN Global Compact (UNGC) Violator Flag.
The UNGC Violator Flag identifies companies that have a high risk or potential risk of violating one or more of the ten UNGC Principles. The UNGC Principles are widely-accepted corporate sustainability principles that cover areas such as human rights, labor standards, the environment, and corruption.
“The RepRisk UNGC Violator Flag helps professionals in the areas of risk, compliance, portfolio management, and procurement assess whether the companies they do business with comply with internal policies and international standards,” says Philipp Aeby, CEO of RepRisk.
He continues: “The companies classified as “UNGC Violators” are those that have had a significant and credible exposure to ESG risk incidents associated with one or more of the ten UNGC Principles. With the Flag, it is also possible to see if the UNGC violations are primarily linked to the operations or to the supply chain of a company.”
The RepRisk ESG Risk Platform is the world’s largest due diligence database on ESG and business conduct risks and includes risk profiles for more than 95,000 companies, listed and non-listed, from all sectors and countries, including emerging and frontier markets. The Platform provides a variety of customizable features to automatically identify and monitor risks in client, investment, or supplier portfolios.
