The Sustainability
Yearbook 2019


Dear Reader,

Welcome to the 2019 Sustainability Yearbook.

This year, the 20th anniversary of the Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA), we make history and at the same time we bring back a little bit of history, by re-introducing the “SAM” brand. Going forward, SAM is our brand for activities connected to companies, and is distinct from the asset management business. A familiar friend of ours, and of those companies that have known the CSA since the beginning, SAM has been with us for many years. (Click here to read more about the SAM brand)

Over the past 20 years, the CSA has continued to evolve, identifying and adapting to changes at the intersection of business and society. With this in mind, we have chosen to focus the 2019 Sustainability Yearbook on social capital issues — the “S” in ESG.
