Key Features and Coverage on RIMES

For this data source, RIMES hosts Arabesque S-Ray ESG scores for approximately 9190 companies.

Scores available from Arabesque S-Ray include:

Temperature Score: Evaluating a company’s contribution to the climate crisis, the Temperature Score is S-Ray’s proprietary metric that quantifies the extent to which corporations are contributing to the rise in global temperature through their greenhouse gas emissions. Companies receive a near-term (2030) and long-term (2050) temperature score reflecting the temperature pathways they are on given their current behaviour.​ This score also comes with indicators to show transparency and ambition of a company to reduce their impact on global warming.

ESG Score: A sector specific analysis of each company’s performance on financially material environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues. This can be used to identify companies that are more likely to outperform over the long run. An overall ESG score is provided, as well as sub-scores for Environment, Social and Governance. XXXXXXXX


GC Score Data: A normative assessment of each company based on the core principles of the United Nations Global Compact. This provides a deeper understanding of reputational risk facing a company. An overall GC score is provided, as well as sub-scores for Human Rights, Labour Rights, Environment and Anti-Corruption.

Feature Layer: A more granular understanding of a company’s performance on 22 different sustainability topics. The Feature Scores serve as building blocks for our top-level GC and ESG scores.
