To create ratings for each of the 45 causes on Ethos, we first define metrics that gauge a company, stock or fund's performance for that cause.
For example, Gender Equality includes metrics such as gender pay gap at a company and policies that support working mothers.
Find the metrics we use for each cause on cause profile pages.
After defining metrics for each cause, we pull in millions of data points from companies, government sources, and independent third parties to score companies and funds on each metric, once per quarter.
For example, we check if there is any updated data for gender pay equity at a company or the percentage of women on a company's board of directors.
Find sources for each cause on cause profile pages.
After gathering updated raw data, we normalize data for each metric on a 0-100 scale. We then combine metric data into a single 0-100 point rating for each company and fund on Ethos, for each of the 45 causes on Ethos.
We currently have ~1,850 companies and funds rated on Ethos, though we are always working to add more.
