Sweden has come first in a ranking of the world's most sustainable countries, with the RobecoSAM report praising Sweden's environmental strengths including the use of renewable energy sources and low CO2 emissions.

The country sustainability framework evaluates 59 countries, 21 developed and 38 emerging markets on a broad range of Environmental, Social and Governance factors that RobecoSAM considers to be relevant for investors. It consists of 17 indicators, each of which is based on various data series, or sub-indicators. Each indicator is assigned a predefined weight out of the
total framework. Based on the standardized scores countries receive for each indicator and its corresponding weight, a country sustainability score ranging from 1-10, with 10 being the highest, is calculated for each country.

The resulting scores offer insights into the investment risks and opportunities associated with each country, and allow investors to compare countries to each other.

The top ten sustainable countries

1. Sweden
2. Australia
3. Switzerland
4. Denmark
5. Norway
6. UK
7. Canada
8. Finland
9. US
10. Netherlands

RobecoSAM is an investment specialist focused exclusively on sustainability investing, and is based in Zurich, Switzerland.
