The focus on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues is intensifying across financial markets – the loan market included. Whether investors are focused on the ESG impacts of their investments or wish to ensure that ESG risks are properly understood in the credit analysis of a company, end investors are seeking increased transparency about the impacts of ESG. As market participants adapt to these evolving demands, it requires an understanding of how ESG risk affects credit ratings. Members joined us for the second webcast in our dedicated series looking at ESG and credit ratings. This webcast explored:

  • How ESG factors are identified
  • How Moody’s Investor Services captures ESG risk and cyber risk in credit ratings
  • Corporate governance and carbon transition scores and their use cases
  • Social, environmental and cyber risk heapmaps identifying most “at risk” sectors
