EOS Group gets top place in ESG rating

  • Excellent ESG risk rating validates EOS Group’s sustainability strategy
  • EOS is among the top two percent in its own segment
  • First external rating to assess sustainability risks by rating agency Morningstar Sustainalytics
For the first time, the EOS Group received an ESG rating from the renowned rating agency Morningstar Sustainalytics. The financial services provider and investor was given a risk rating of 10.2 (low risk). According to Morningstar Sustainalytics, this puts EOS among the top two percent in the “Consumer Finance” sector in which it operates.

EOS was assessed in the categories “Human Capital”, “Product Governance”, “Data Privacy and Security”, “Corporate Governance” and “Business Ethics”. At 10.2, EOS only just fell short of the best category (0 to 10, negligible risk) on a rating scale of 0 to 40+. 

“Become a little better every day”

“We want to change things for the better, day by day. This independent ESG rating makes our contribution to sustainable development transparent,” says Marwin Ramcke, CEO of the EOS Group. “Getting this top position right away shows that our corporate responsibility strategy is successful and that we are very well positioned in a lot of areas. This result is also an incentive to continue to become a little better every day,” Ramcke continues.
