Verisk Maplecroft has launched Industry Risk Analytics, to provide companies, insurers, and financial institutions with a geospatial risk solution that identifies the exposure of 80 sectors to 52 different ESG and political risks across 198 countries.

The new dataset can be used to underpin and strengthen analysis of a wide range of risks impacting operations, supply chains, and investments globally by offering in-depth insight into how country-level risks vary between industries.

The dataset draws on over 50 of Verisk Maplecroft’s 170+ global risk indices, combining them with proprietary global and local industry risk factors to deliver precise risk scores for each sector in all countries.

Issues covered include labour / labor rights, such as modern slavery, child labour, fair wages and working hours; environmental risks, including water stress, climate change vulnerability, pollution, heat stress and natural hazards; and political risks covering corruption, conflict intensity and civil unrest.
