For an approach to sustainability which puts organisations in a competitive business position with stable rhythms and a shared and long-lasting value for all stakeholders, it is important to measure the decisions they take and the real ESG impacts (Environmental, Social and Governance) in order to make them aware of their own strengths and weaknesses.
Our ESG assessment consists of measuring the integration levels of environmental, social and governance sustainability principles in the organisation’s strategies, policies, and activities.

RINA has developed a technical protocol aligned to the ‘Consolidated Set of GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) Sustainability Reporting Standards 2020’ indicator. The assessment uses a rating methodology based on a set of key indicators considering the industry sector in which the organisation operates, and which is periodically updated according to international best practices. The aim is to give an evaluation of the long-term resilience of organisations, concerning environmental, social and governance issues to better prioritise interventions.
The ESG assessment is carried out using our SAFE (Smart Audit For Enterprises) digital platform, which makes it possible to perform an initial self-assessment.
The ESG assessment is addressed to any kind of organisation, public or private, of any size and from any industry sector, that has the aim of demonstrating a commitment to the integration of ESG principles in its activities and giving stakeholders, both internal and external, the chance to share opinions and take informed decisions.
RINA has many years of experience in the field of certification and independent third-party verification in the field of sustainability, with particular expertise in the analysis and assessment of ESG and economic aspects. We are recognised and accredited by many international bodies for the main certification schemes in the sustainability sector.
Sustainable global investments have become more and more important in recent years:
- The increasing importance of an ESG rating is the result of the obligation of industries to take ESG factors into account in a more systemic way in their business decisions and risk-management processes
- The increasing demand for an evaluation must be paired with a guarantee that the information is trustworthy to an extent which prevents greenwashing
GRI standards enable an organisation to understand and report on its impacts on the economy, environment and people in a comparable and credible way, thereby increasing transparency regarding its contribution to sustainable development. The standards are also highly relevant to many stakeholders including investors, policymakers, capital markets, and society in general.
