RepRisk uses a proprietary, systematic framework that combines cutting-edge technology with hands-on human intelligence in 15 languages to deliver dynamic and curated risk information. This method captures and analyzes data from media, stakeholders, and other public sources external to the company evaluated. This insight helps balance and substantiate the information provided by the company itself, and helps assess whether a company’s intention – policies, processes, and commitments – translates into practice.

RepRisk has two main metrics, the RepRisk Index (RRI) and the RepRisk Rating (RRR). The RRI builds on the risk incidents for a given company. The RRR builds on the risk incidents for a given company, and on its country-sector risk exposure.
