About Us

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, investment product design, impact analysis, and ESG controversy monitoring. Covalence also delivers data and research to corporates, academics and non-profits relying on its EthicalQuote reputation index.

The Covalence approach is based on a diversity of sources of information and relies on web monitoring and artificial intelligence together with human analysis. We compare ESG data publicly reported by companies (disclosure) to online narrative content reflecting the perceptions of stakeholders such as the media and NGOs (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.

Since 2001 Covalence has received the following awards and recognitions:

•            10 finance innovations — Geneva, the sustainable finance laboratory (2014)

•            Ethisphere 2009's 100 Most Influential People in Business Ethics
