Strengthen RI as an approach to investments
Responsible Investment Advisory
Our positioning reflects our concern for quality, responsibility, innovation and performance.
We have cutting-edge analytical and conceptual expertise. We serve investors interested in critical metals* and the mining sector in compliance with ESG reporting rules and sustainable development criteria.
To serve you, we have developed a responsible, innovative risk rating (eRR) methodology in order to discriminate against small caps that do not appear on the radar screens of the major 'ESG rating' players.
During the existence of ethore SA (previously LKConsult) we have built diversified metal portfolios according to technical risk and responsible investment criteria.
Today we are committed to incorporating into portfolios only companies selected according to investment guidelines and which include recognized ESG standards and are likely to meet UNSDG's. We measure their progress and transparently communicate their results.
* Critical metals are part of Critical Raw Materials (CRM) which is a selection of materials of economic importance, facing a supply risk and having a lack of substitutes.
We can assist you to build your sustainability approach and to understand the new ESG disclosures requirements.
Relying only on ESG rating organisations does not validate a responsible approach if it is disconnected from in house sustainable objectives in connection with a coherent investment policy.
Critical metals play a strategic role into technologies which can reduce CO2 emissions.
Green technologies supply chains are demanding of critical metals. Behind final products of key sectors, we find specific supply chains and companies aiming to provide the seeking competitive advantages to OEM’s without compromising sustainable development goals.
ESG & Rating
An opportunity now exists for Responsible Investors to positively influence behavior in the Energy and Metals sector and to improve sustainability performance.
This can be done thanks to an appropriate ESG approach backed by a business intelligence.
ethore Risk Rating covers the universe of small and micro-cap with its eRR methodology (GRI standards and SDGs integrated).
