How is Merco’s ESG responsibility ranking created?

To create this ranking, Merco carried out five evaluations with 14 different sources of information.

First, 373 directors of large companies indicated the companies that they consider most responsible in Brazil in terms of ESG. 

This initial list was then evaluated by 458 experts (such as financial analysts, journalists, representatives of NGOs and unions), who gave the companies a score from 0 to 100.

The listed companies are also evaluated by Merco Digital technicians — who analyze the reputation generated in digital media and among influencers — and by 3,000 citizens. This resulted in the final result of those with the best reputation when it comes to ESG.
