NEI's research into corporate environmental, social and governance issues supports and enhances the ESG Services Team’s company evaluations, corporate engagement and policy work. We share this research to advance understanding of responsible investing among companies, investors and other stakeholders and to help build collaborative efforts.

The ESG Services Team occasionally releases benchmark studies of corporate performance across sectors. NEI also organizes Round Tables – expert meetings to raise the level of debate and develop positions on emerging issues.
