We address the problem of insufficient information about companies’ sustainability, thereby helping investors to incorporate sustainability aspects into investment decisions. Building upon the design science research paradigm, we develop an artifact to extract information on companies’ sustainability from text documents (analyst reports). We derive design principles that allow us to extract this information effectively and with a high degree of classification performance. The evaluation of the artifact shows that the proposed approach results in a precise extraction of sustainability-related information. Furthermore, this information is shown to be useful for supporting investors’ decision-making.
