Pioneering research on independent ESG scoring

In partnership with the Center for Risk Management Lausanne (CRML) and the Centre d'expertise sur les extrêmes climatiques (ECCE), Quanthome is developing objective and independent methods for assessing the risks associated with property investments, for the safety of tenants and investors. 

By partnering with Quanthome as a data provider, the Centre for Risk Management Lausanne of HEC Lausanne and the University of Lausanne now have the opportunity to be totally independent in their rating methods.
