Singapore Airlines'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 Singapore Airlines.

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

Singapore Airlines's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 23.17

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Singapore Airlines's overall score of 23.17 (as at 12/31/2018) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 41st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Singapore Airlines's environmental score

Environmental score: 5.29/100

Singapore Airlines's environmental score of 5.29 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Singapore Airlines is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Singapore Airlines's social score

Social score: 10.34/100

Singapore Airlines's social score of 10.34 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Singapore Airlines is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Singapore Airlines's governance score

Governance score: 4.54/100

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

Singapore Airlines's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

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

Singapore Airlines share dividends

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

Have Singapore Airlines's shares ever split?

Singapore Airlines's shares were split on a 985:694 basis on 5 May 2020. So if you had owned 694 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 985 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Singapore Airlines shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 29.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Singapore Airlines shares which in turn could have impacted Singapore Airlines's share price.

Singapore Airlines share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Singapore Airlines's shares have ranged in value from as little as S$3.38 up to S$5.78. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

C6L.SG volatility(beta: 0.99)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (SG average) beta is 1, while Singapore Airlines's is 0.9938. This would suggest that Singapore Airlines's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
