Blackstone Group'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 Blackstone Group.

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

Blackstone Group's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 29.04

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Blackstone Group's overall score of 29.04 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 57th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Blackstone Group 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.).

Blackstone Group's environmental score

Environmental score: 0.2/100

Blackstone Group's environmental score of 0.2 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Blackstone Group is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Blackstone Group's social score

Social score: 12.52/100

Blackstone Group's social score of 12.52 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Blackstone Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Blackstone Group's governance score

Governance score: 15.21/100

Blackstone Group's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Blackstone Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Blackstone Group's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

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

Blackstone Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 85.11% of net profits

Recently Blackstone Group has paid out, on average, around 85.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Blackstone Group shareholders could enjoy a 5.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Blackstone Group's case, that would currently equate to about $4.4 per share.

Blackstone Group's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Blackstone Group's most recent dividend payout was on 13 February 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Blackstone Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Blackstone Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $71.72 up to $128.4335. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BX.US volatility(beta: 1.51)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Blackstone Group's is 1.5082. This would suggest that Blackstone Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
