CAER is a leading provider of independent research into the environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance of companies. CAER can provide comprehensive research on nearly 3,000 companies globally.

Our research is client-driven and designed to allow investors to compare company performance. We research a range of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues and specific ethical concerns such as involvement in arms or tobacco.

Investors are increasingly factoring ESG performance analysis into their investment decisions. As a result of this it has become increasingly important for companies to engage with these issues and to report on that engagement. Completing our surveys gives companies an opportunity to provide the most up-to-date and accurate information on their ESG performance to more than 100 investment institutions.

CAER's research is used by a variety of asset owners and asset managers (including pension funds), investment banks and charities throughout the world. Over 60% of the UK's responsible investment funds are managed by our clients.

CAER does not assess companies' financial status but looks at their ESG policies and practices. We do not give overall company rankings but provide assessments on over 150 individual criteria.

Our commitment is to handle our relations with companies professionally, independently and in a timely fashion. If you have any concerns or complaints, please contact us.
