Our methodology

The ESG Factor-IN is based on an econometric model, using PCA and PLS regressions to determine the materiality of 225 E, S and G factors.  As the ESG materiality of a specific indicator differs according to the level of economic development of countries, we have built 5 country groups, each using a dedicated model.  Each model identifies the most relevant ESG factors and evaluates country performance on these indicators relative to its peers. In the aggregation process to provide a unique sustainable GDP indicator, the relative weighting of each indicator reflects its impact on the economic growth of a country over the last 15 years.
