The Sustainability Yearbook lists the world’s most sustainable companies in each industry as determined by their score in RobecoSAM’s annual Corporate Sustainability Assessment.

UBS is committed to creating long-term positive impact for its clients, employees, investors and society, and the firm made substantial progress on this commitment in 2017. This is illustrated by the recognition UBS received throughout the year for its activities and capabilities. Besides the recognitions from RobecoSAM, MSCI ESG Research upgraded UBS to ‘A’ in its latest sustainability ratings, placing it in the top three of its primary peer group. Sustainalytics, the ESG ratings and research analysts, ranked UBS as an industry leader.

In addition, UBS was identified as a global leader in its response to climate change for the second year running and was awarded a position on the Climate A List by CDP, the non-profit global environmental disclosure platform. This is in recognition of the firm’s actions to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop the low-carbon economy.
