The innovative ESG2GO sustainability rating tool

ESG2GO: Benchmarking for SME standard

Sustainability is also central for small and medium-sized enterprises, but a reliable reporting standard has been lacking until now. The new rating "esg2go" aims to remedy this situation. The project is backed by the Center for Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (CCRS) at the University of Zurich, as well as renowned financial service providers such as UBS, Credit Suisse and the Zurich Group. After completion of the current test phase, a first version is to be launched in spring 2022, which will show SMEs the strengths and weaknesses of their sustainability performance on an industry-specific basis. This benchmark-based rating is intended to become the standard in the area of sustainability in Switzerland and make sustainability reporting for SMEs transparent, simple, measurable and comparable.
