S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) Training

Organised in collaboration with S&P Global


In collaboration with S&P Global, CSRWorks offers the CSA Training.

Training sessions will be conducted by expert speakers/trainers from S&P Global and S&P Global Ratings.

The CSA Training is aimed at enhancing participants’ knowledge and understanding of the Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) criteria, methodology and scoring.


The CSA is an annual evaluation of companies’ sustainability practices. Results from the CSA, the S&P Global ESG Scores, are a key factor to select eligible companies into S&P Global ESG Indices, incluing the world famous Dow Jones Sustainability Indices, or the S&P Global LargeMidCap ESG Index. The ESG scores and (if applicable) also the underlying data-points are made available to capital market participants via S&P Globals Capital IQ Pro Platform and to the public via the S&P Global EGS Scores webpage.

Investors are increasingly seeking ESG information on companies, and S&P Global Clients representing over US $26 trillion in assets under management now integrate S&P Global ESG scores into their investment decision-making processes. More than 65% of CSA participants decided to share a larger amount of underlying datapoints submitted in the CSA to leverage S&P Global’s platforms to communicate to the wider capital market.

Currently, approximately 11,00 global companies are assessed annually, in 2022 over 2,200 companies participated actively in the assessment. Each participating company is provided with ESG Scores at the question-, criteria-, dimension- and total-level, with detailed benchmarking opportunities against their global industry peers. Participation in the CSA and related benchmarking tools are provided free of charge to invited companies.


There are two training courses:
1. DJSI Fundamentals training for beginners (one day)
2. DJSI Expert training for advance level users (one day)


The CSA Training Course aims to introduce the participants to CSA process and methodology as well as the use of the CSA results by capital markets. This training is most suitable for those companies which are new to responding to the CSA questionnaire.


This course is most suitable for senior managers in the area of sustainability, ESG analysis, sustainability reporting, investor relations, GHG emissions/climate change, environmental management, human resources, sustainable finance and investment and corporate governance.
