Stericycle's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Stericycle.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Stericycle's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 32.41

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Stericycle's overall score of 32.41 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 47th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Stericycle is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Stericycle's environmental score

Environmental score: 20.93/100

Stericycle's environmental score of 20.93 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Stericycle is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Stericycle's social score

Social score: 12.14/100

Stericycle's social score of 12.14 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Stericycle is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Stericycle's governance score

Governance score: 8.34/100

Stericycle's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Stericycle is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Stericycle's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Stericycle scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Stericycle has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Stericycle share dividends

We're not expecting Stericycle to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Stericycle's shares ever split?

Stericycle's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 June 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Stericycle shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stericycle shares which in turn could have impacted Stericycle's share price.

Stericycle share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Stericycle's shares have ranged in value from as little as $44.04 up to $79.97. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SRCL.US volatility(beta: 1.31)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Stericycle's is 1.3054. This would suggest that Stericycle's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
