The STANDARD ETHICS RATING© (SER) is the first Solicited Sustainability Rating (SSR) in Europe. It has been tested for over the last 14 years. A Solicited Sustainability Rating (SSR) is a Rating on Corporate Social Responsibility and Corporate Governance that is - at the same time - solicited, standard and independent:
- Solicited: because it is issued only on request by the applicant, which is recipient of the rating;
- Standard: because any rating is always comparable to other ratings and the algorithm is aligned to the same guidelines;
- Independent: because its assignment is incompatible with the supply of other services, research and consulting activities related to data that have been collected. It is also appropriate not to have common financial and economic interests between the rating agency and applicants.
