VALUE FOR UTILITIES


Target Rock provides innovative perspectives on how well energy utility companies are performing and where sustainability practice improvements might be achieved.

Our approach measures actual performance in key areas that bear directly on the quality of enterprise sustainability programs.

Utility clients can compare their performance to that of the other forty-eight utilities in our assessment universe, with other company subgroups or with individual companies. Our scoring process and benchmarking capabilities offer the following advantages:

First, they can help the highly performing companies tell their story to regulators, investors, equities analysts and other stakeholders. An improved profile can increase analyst coverage and investor interest, improve regulatory relationships, create pride in employees, and generally enhance brand image and public relations.

Second, they can enhance sustainability planning by creating industry-wide benchmarks and reference points for goal-setting and understanding best-in-class practices.

Third, for utilities that seek to move up the sustainability ladder, Target Rock’s products can guide performance improvement efforts by use of not only self-assessment tools and benchmarks, but also through sensitivity and scenario testing.

For small and mid-cap utilities in particular favorable sustainability rankings bring the potential for more attention and research coverage by securities analysts and portfolio managers.
Though many large utilities are generally recognized as sustainability leaders, our system reveals a number of surprises including highly sustainable small- and mid-cap utilities that are often overlooked by investors and other sustainability rating systems.

  • Benchmarking
  • Greater transparency
  • Sharper focus on long-term horizons
  • Potential for improved analyst coverage for under-covered utilities
  • Improved line of sight between sustainability and financial performance
