ESG Ratings Progress for DK C25 Companies


Stockholm (NordSIP) – Danish OMX Copenhagen 25 companies have made considerable progress in global ESG rating agencies rankings over the past year, it has emerged. On average, a company listed on the C25 index now ranks among the top 19 per cent of companies in the world creating sustainable value for investors, versus a mere 70 percentile ranking last year.

Well-established Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) performers are consolidated at the top of the rankings, while several of the formerly badly performing companies are now rated in the top half of all ESG-rated companies globally according to measurements on ESG indicators from several of the most important ESG rating agencies, according to Danish business publication Økonomisk Ugebrev.
