How does ESG scoring work at Plus500?
An ESG score can help traders understand a company’s sustainability and long-term resilience on Environmental, Social, and Governance factors. Traders often analyse a company’s score and ranking for performance, potential trading opportunities, possible growth, and risks.
Our ESG scoring in a nutshell:
- ESG total score is the average of all subcategories, not including the main categories score.
- Main category scores are the average of their relevant subcategories.
- All our scores are scored from 1 (low) - 10 (high).
- Industry ranking is as follows: Leader, Above Average, Average, Below Average, Laggard.
