Refinitiv announces the 2021 Top 100 most diverse and inclusive organizations globally as ranked by the Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Index. The index ratings are informed by Refinitiv’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) data, designed to transparently and objectively measure the relative performance of close to 11,000 companies representing 80%+ of global market cap across 500+ ESG data points, and provide clients with critical and differentiated insight.
Industries leading this year’s D&I Index Top 100 are banking, investment services & insurance firms with a total of 13, followed by pharmaceuticals with 9, specialty retailers 8 and telecommunications services, personal & household products & services with 7 respectively. United States leads the Top 100 list with 25 firms followed by the United Kingdom with 9, Australia, Italy and Germany 6, Canada, France, and South Africa 5.
The D&I Index is available on Refinitiv Workspace and Eikon, as are the underlying diversity and inclusion metrics, which are used by financial professionals to evaluate sustainability related risks and opportunities of companies across their investments, as well as empower diversity-lens investing strategies. The D&I Index utilizes innovative analytics to rate and score companies across 4 main pillars: Diversity, Inclusion, People Development and Controversies.
Only companies with scores across all four pillars are assigned an overall score (the average of the pillar scores). The top 100 ranked companies with the best overall D&I scores are selected for the Index.
“Congratulations to the 2021 D&I Index Top 100 most diverse & inclusive organizations globally. We are proud that our D&I index continues to demonstrate strong performance,” said Debra Walton, Chief Revenue Officer, Data & Analytics, Head of Group Strategic Accounts, London Stock Exchange Group.
