RepRisk Releases Report on Most Controversial Projects of 2014

Annual Report Highlights Global Projects and the ESG Issues They Face

ZURICH, Switzerland--()--RepRisk, the leading provider of business intelligence on environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks, has released its Most Controversial Projects Report (MCP Report), which focuses on the projects – such as mines, ports, factories, and travel and leisure complexes – that were most exposed to ESG risks in 2014.

The projects are based in North and South America, Eurasia, Asia and Australia, and span the extractive, leisure, industrial transportation and utility sectors. Out of the ten projects ranked in the MCP Report 2014, five are related to major workplace disasters caused by hazardous working conditions.

The data for the report is based on information screened, analyzed, and quantified by RepRisk from a wide range of publicly-available, third-party sources.

RepRisk’s MCP Report spotlights ESG risks and was developed as part of RepRisk’s commitment to providing transparency.

Currently, RepRisk’s ESG Risk Platform covers over 12,000 projects that are linked to ESG-related risk incidents. As our clients have shown increasing interest in our coverage of projects, the MCP Report will now become an annual feature on RepRisk’s calendar of reports.
