Morningstar today published the Morningstar Sustainability Atlas, which provides a geographical overview of how companies around the world are handling impactful and material environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues. The Atlas examines 35 Morningstar Country Indexes through six maps, showing the range of Country Index Scores on overall sustainability and its components.

Highlights of the Morningstar Sustainability Atlas include:

• The Morningstar Portugal Index has the highest Morningstar Sustainability Score of 67.4. Portugal has a low Morningstar Controversy Score, which signals that none of the constituents in the Portugal Index are currently involved in a major ESG-related controversy. Additionally, despite Portugal being a small and concentrated index, the basket is mostly composed of stocks with ESG scores that rank above average or high in their respective global industry peer groups.

• European Nordic countries are a key area of opportunity for sustainable investments. The Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland indexes all rank in the highest quintile on Sustainability Scores. The highest scoring non-European country is Australia at 53.9; the United States ranks in the second lowest quintile of the group at 47.0 while the Morningstar Russia Index scored the worst at 38.5.
