Natural rubber: ESG policy transparency assessments

  • Latest update: March 2023
  • Next scheduled: March 2024

SPOTT assesses 30 natural rubber producers, processors, traders and manufacturers on their public disclosure regarding their organisation, policies and practices related to environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. Each company receives a percentage score to benchmark their progress over time. See further explanation of assessment scores here.

Company policies and commitments may not translate into effective implementation on the ground. The media monitor on each company page may provide some contextual information; however, independent due diligence activities should include measures to assess levels of implementation.

Select a company in the table below to view its full assessment, along with a press release and summary of key figures and findings across the latest assessments.

Media monitor: Natural rubber producers, processors and manufacturers

SPOTT monitors global media sources for coverage of assessed companies. The media monitor gathers reports about specific activities related to the assessment indicator categories. ZSL does not assess or score the validity of media coverage, but users can explore the media monitor to provide context on implementation, and infer risks associated with reported operations on the ground. The media monitor undergoes a full update at the time of publishing an assessment round, with ad-hoc updates throughout the year. This is not an exhaustive list of all media reports relevant to the company.
