OPTEN ESG

The ESG aims to monitor the non-financial risks and opportunities inherent in the day-to-day activities of companies, which banks and fund managers are expected to incorporate into their lending and investment processes from 2022.

OPTEN is going to be the first - as of 1 January 2022 - to provide a market standard ESG index for all companies operating in Hungary.

OPTEN ESG INDEX

Index, indicator, certification instantly

Our ESG index service is a flexible addition to your existing OPTEN subscription. It shows the ESG level of a company based on more than 50 parameters.

Why should you be involved in the ESG rating of your company?

The EU has put ESG aspects into a legal framework and from January 1, 2022, large companies are going to be required to report "non-financial data".

"It is worth taking the first steps as soon as possible, as in line with the EU's intentions, the banking system is also attaching increasing importance to ESG aspects, as well as the investors. Whether they are small, medium or large enterprises, analysts believe that responsible companies are going to be in a much better position to compete for assets, loans or EU tenders", said Tamás Tóth, the Managing Director of OPTEN.

What is there to lose by not addressing the issue?

Certification and assessment

OPTEN has been helping its subscribers for over 25 years with indicators that are considered to be market standard. In addition to the ESG index, we also support the objective mapping of a company with crisis resilience, creditworthiness and risk indicators. If you want to know what the market thinks about your company, you cannot ignore the issues of sustainability and the protection of the environment and the OPTEN ESG index developed in this context.

EU legislative changes

The regulatory environment is increasingly focusing on non-financial indicators alongside financial ones. OPTEN Risk Rating and Index has long used comprehensive company assessment criteria, which have now been complemented by ESG guidelines.

Financial institution process

Credit and financial institutions are required to incorporate ESG guidelines into their classification processes. You can lose time and money if you start your company's compliance work belatedly.

Corporate social responsibility

Both the protection of natural assets (E-environmental) and the representation of social and societal values (S-social) are important parts of a company's value. As employees and conscious consumers, the image we project of ourselves cannot be underestimated, either.

Raising capital

Investors are also integrating ESG considerations into their decision-making processes, whether they are buying shares or other securities. It is no coincidence that the Budapest Stock Exchange has also set out an ESG compliance roadmap until the end of 2021.
