The full rating report can be found here. Excerpts from the report:

“In terms of sustainability, PV-Invest has a distinctly above-average position as compared to the listed Austrian companies as well as to the members of the VÖNIX Index. As compared to the international sector (secondary energy), PV-Invest also is clearly above the mean sustainability level but does not reach the leading group – which is, in the present peer group, represented by the Portuguese energy supplier EDP RENOVAVEIS.”

“The next update of the analysis is not yet defined. The rating outlook basically is stable. Based on the current score of +3.3, PV-Invest reaches the status “qualified” in the rfu Sustainability Rating. If the recommendations are implemented, a noticeable rating improvement and positioning in the leading group can be expected.”
