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

We offer ESG rating services and thematic investment solutions

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

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.

Covalence approach is based on multiple sources of information and relies on web monitoring, artificial intelligence together with human analysis. We oppose ESG data publicly reported by companies (disclosure) to online narrative content reflecting the views of stakeholders such as NGOs and the media (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 provides investors and asset managers with services that help them design and implement responsible and sustainable investment strategies. These include: ESG ratings, monitoring of ESG news, both positive (impact stories) and negative (controversies), thematic investment products and ad hoc research. Covalence also delivers data and research to corporates, academics and non-profits relying on its EthicalQuote reputation index.
