Founded in 2001, Covalence SA helps companies and investors integrate Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) factors into strategy and decision making. Our services include: ESG ratings, thematic investment products, and monitoring of ESG news, both positive (impact stories) and negative (controversies). Covalence also delivers data and research to corporates, academics and non-profits relying on its EthicalQuote reputation index.
Covalence approach is based on multiple sources of information and relies on web monitoring, artificial intelligence together with human analysis. We oppose ESG data publicly reported by companies (disclosure) to online narrative content reflecting the views of stakeholders such as NGOs and the media (reputation). This approach allows users to track inconsistencies, monitor changes and benefit from timely alternative data. The information is delivered in an actionable format to support ESG risk exposure mitigation and long-term value creation.
Covalence is a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), an institutional partner of Sustainable Finance Geneva (SFG), a founding member of Swiss Sustainable Finance, and a member of the Chamber of Social and Solidarity Economy in Geneva APRÈS-GE.
