Founded in 2001, Covalence SA helps companies and investors integrate Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) factors into strategy and decision making.

Since 2001 Covalence has been evaluating companies according to Environment, Social and Governance criteria (ESG)

Antoine Mach and Marc Rochat founded Covalence to help companies and investors integrate ESG issues

And to respond to the international community’s call for sustainable development

Our services : ESG ratings, investment product design, impact analysis, and ESG controversy monitoring

Our semi-automated approach integrates data disclosed by companies and stakeholder perceptions

It is based on multiple sources of information and relies on web monitoring, artificial intelligence together with human analysis

To investors and asset managers Covalence offers services enabling them to implement responsible and sustainable investment strategies: 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.

Assessing companies’ practices and impact

To assess the contribution of companies to sustainable development, we consider their practices as well as their impact on society and the environment.

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.

The co-founders, Antoine Mach and Marc Rochat, firmly believe in the economic value of sustainability: a robust ESG rating reflects a company’s stakeholder trust and its ability to identify and manage relevant social and environmental issues. It is an indicator of corporate management quality, strategic vision, risk management and opportunity creation as well as brand positioning and overall resilience of the company’s business model: elements that are all positively perceived and valued by the markets.
