Blended Values

Sustainability ratings for all companies in the world

In this era we live in today, responsible investing becomes crucial

The world is facing challenges such as climate change and growing inequality.

These challenges are threatening the stability and  long-term habitability of our Planet. Ignoring environmental and social issues is not only bad for the Planet and its population but can be devastating to economic prosperity and growth.

Increasingly, businesses and investors aim to participate meaningfully in advancing solutions to solving these global challenges.

To tackle these urgent challenges, a change to a sustainable society is needed where all companies have a positive impact

Investors play an essential role in this transition by investing in financial, social, and ecological profitable companies

Not only from a moral perspective but also to reduce risks associated with adverse sustainability impact. Various stakeholders and governments are demanding financially profitable investments while achieving positive social and ecological impact.
