Sage’s ESG Leaf Score Methodology

Although a company may be a leader among its peer group, the industry in which it operates may expose it to risks that cannot be mitigated through company management. By combining an ESG macro industry risk analysis with a company-level sustainability evaluation, the Sage Leaf Score bridges this gap, enabling investors to quickly assess companies across industries. The Sage Leaf Score is based on a 1 to 5 scale (5-leaf companies are leaders).
