ESG Performance & Reporting

We strive for continuous improvement in our ESG performance

 

Our sustainability performance is regularly assessed by ESG rating agencies. We are happy to receive valuable feedback from outside, which we can use to grow further. Here, we essentially focus on five key ratings and strive for continuous improvement for our company. In addition to the listed ratings, we aim to participate in the CDP Climate rating process from 2022. The response to the Water module is planned from 2023. In the following, we create transparency about the current overall rating results.

Sustainalytics

Sustainalytics’ ESG Risk Ratings measure a company’s exposure to industry-specific material ESG risks and how well a company is managing those risks. This multi-dimensional way of measuring ESG risk combines the concepts of management and exposure to arrive at an assessment of ESG risk, i.e. a total unmanaged ESG risk score or the ESG Risk Rating, that is comparable across all industries. Sustainalytics’ ESG Risk Ratings provide a quantitative measure of unmanaged ESG risk and distinguish between five levels of risk: negligible, low, medium, high and severe.

Sustainability Reporting

Since 2017, Evotec is reporting on non-financial topics in line with the German Commercial Code. For the financial year 2020 we started to extend the scope of this report to voluntary sustainability disclosures. Our first Sustainability Report is just the beginning of communicationg our efforts to OUR stakeholders holistically.
