Swedbank Assigned ESG Evaluation Score Of 75; Preparedness Adequate

Published

on

 

S&P Global Ratings has assigned Swedbank AB an ESG Evaluation score of 75 (out of 100; see “Swedbank AB: ESG Evaluation” published today). The company’s ESG Evaluation score is the result of an ESG profile of 72, combined with an adequate (+3) preparedness. Higher numbers indicate stronger sustainability in our evaluations.

Headquartered in Stockholm, Swedbank is among the leading Nordic banks, with around €250 billion of assets. It provides a wide range of financial services to retail, midsize, and large corporate customers, with leading market positions in Sweden and the Baltic countries.

Our ESG Evaluation of 75 is supported by Swedbank’s established environmental, social, and governance (ESG) integration along its value chain, but is constrained by past governance deficiencies. These were brought to light by the 2019 money laundering controversy.

Swedbank’s asset management arm, Robur, was among the first to integrate ESG, with a particular focus on climate-related issues. The implementation of an advanced responsible investment framework has enabled Robur to reduce the carbon footprint of its portfolios and should support its commitment to align its investments with a 1.5 degrees Celsius climate scenario by 2025. Although the bank’s ESG integration in terms of its lending activities is less developed, in our view, it is on track to roll out additional sector-specific ESG guidance, including on mortgages, which should facilitate systematic implementation and monitoring.

Relative to the global industry average, Swedbank benefits from higher social standards in Sweden. On the other hand, like other large banks, it faces challenges regarding customer satisfaction, partly after the material reputational damage caused by the severity of its 2019 money laundering case. Indeed, Swedbank is still strengthening its risk culture and governance following the controversy. Although its new board and executive management have invested heavily to be among the leaders in combating financial crime, we believe these measures will take time to permeate across the entire organization.

Swedbank’s robust preparedness reflects its excellent awareness of potential long-term disruptions, including digitalization and climate change, balanced by the short track record of its board.

What Is An ESG Evaluation?
S&P Global Ratings’ ESG evaluation is a cross-sector, relative analysis of an entity’s capacity to continue to operate successfully. It is grounded in how ESG factors could affect stakeholders, potentially leading to a material direct or indirect financial impact on the entity.

Our definition of stakeholders for a particular entity goes beyond shareholders to include employees, the local community, government, regulators, customers, lenders, borrowers, policyholders, voters, members, and suppliers. A high ESG evaluation score indicates an entity is relatively less prone to experiencing material ESG-related events, and is relatively better positioned to capitalize on ESG-related growth opportunities than entities with lower ESG evaluation scores.

First, we establish an ESG profile for a given entity, which assesses the exposure of the entity’s operations to observable ESG risks and opportunities, and how the entity is mitigating these risks and capitalizing on these opportunities.

Second, we assess the entity’s long-term preparedness, namely its capacity to anticipate and adapt to a variety of long-term plausible disruptions.

S&P Global Ratings currently evaluates over 70 entities across the globe; they have an average score of 67. Since the first ESG evaluation, published in June 2019, we have finalized ESG Evaluations across 21 sectors globally. By region, the highest average score is 72, for companies headquartered in Europe.

Two thirds of PR Pros can’t prove their work helps their business or client: CoverageBook

Published

on

two-thirds-of-pr-pros-can’t-prove-their-work-helps-their-business-or-client:-coveragebook

Just 1 in 3 PRs track the commercial impact of their work – while 66% are focused on driving high volumes of coverage31% of PRs have seen budgets cut in the last year, but a staggering 50% of those respondents believe this would have been less likely if they could better prove commercial relevanceNew free tool ‘CoverageImpact’ helps PRs prove the value of their work and bridge this disconnectLONDON, Feb. 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — PR may talk the talk when it comes to boardroom relevance, but it’s failing to walk the walk. New research from CoverageBook, the leading PR industry reporting platform, shows that just one third of PR pros align their activity with commercial goals. The survey of over 350 senior PR and marketing professionals reveals a significant disconnect between how the PR industry measures and reports on activity and what senior leaders and budget holders expect to see. 

This research comes at a time when clients are putting increased scrutiny on PR teams to demonstrate impact. While the industry is finally putting outdated metrics like AVE (used by just 7% of respondents) to bed – there’s no consensus on how to prove the value of PR and communications.
To help build that consensus and allow every PR to prove the value of their work, CoverageBook is launching CoverageImpact, a revolutionary free tool designed to simplify PR reporting and impact measurement. The tool aims to bridge the gap between PR professionals’ activities and their clients’ commercial goals, ensuring that there’s no disconnect between agency and client or within a business.
This is particularly important as less than half of PR professionals currently consider new biz and sales when measuring the impact of their work – just 41% of UK respondents and 34% of US respondents take the new business/sales pipeline into account. These numbers drop significantly when asked about investment generation – 14% of UK respondents and 13% of US respondents. 
So what are they measuring? Well unsurprisingly, the focus is on outputs and audience, with 96% citing target audience as a key measurement criteria and 66% high volumes of coverage. 
Lack of commercial proof has a financial impact
The result of all this lack of commercial certainty? Unfortunately, it’s budget cuts. When asked about their 2023 budgets, 31% of all respondents said they had seen cuts (33% agencies, and 22% in-house).
Unsurprisingly, 50% of those respondents believe this would have been less likely if they could better prove commercial relevance. Breaking that figure down clearly shows the correlation between impact proof and budget decisions, with 75% of agency respondents and 25% of in-house respondents in the UK agreeing with that statement, alongside 79% of agency respondents and 21% of in-house respondents in the USA. 
Commenting on the findings, Alastair McCapra, CIPR CEO said: “These findings show how PR practitioners are putting more time into measurement and evaluation, but the lack of a common approach is costing us credibility. With one in three PR budgets being cut and a sluggish economy, we need to be more effective than ever in telling our story, and communicating the impact and value of our work.” 
When asked about the biggest challenges they face in measurement, 54% of all respondents cited a lack of a universal measurement framework, while 52% mentioned a lack of measurement tools. These findings underscore the urgent need for tools that simplify measurement and reporting, making it easier for PR professionals to demonstrate the value of their work.
Introducing CoverageImpact
CoverageImpact, developed by the creators of CoverageBook and Answer The Public, offers a simple solution for turning coverage tracker spreadsheets into visually appealing ‘coverage over time’ graphics. With CoverageImpact, users can easily add impact data to their reports without the need for complex pivot tables or data visualisation skills. The tool is compatible with popular PR tools such as Excel, Google Sheets, Cision, MuckRack, TalkWalker, Meltwater, and CoverageBook, making it accessible to PR professionals worldwide.
“The truth is everybody needs to level up on telling the story of their impact; how their work correlates to organisational impact – the stuff leadership and boards actually care about. We know this is happening in small pockets, there are some case studies of PR measurement already,” said Gary Preston, CEO & Co Founder at CoverageBook. “But only a few can afford dedicated teams with Python, Excel & Data viz skills to do the job. Our aim is to democratise PR measurement for everyone to start having credible impact stories.”
In addition to simplifying reporting, the tool is designed to help PR practitioners start credible conversations with senior business leaders and budget holders, create graphs that support strategic decision-making, and save time in generating reports.
