The focus on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues is intensifying across financial markets – the loan market included. To help credit market participants accurately assess ESG risks in their portfolios, Moody’s has begun publishing ESG scores covering a wide range of sectors including public finance & infrastructure names, oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, mining, telecoms and others facing broad ESG challenges. This webinar, the second in our series on ESG and credit ratings, examined:

  • How Moody’s identifies material ESG risk
  • A comparison of ESG scores for highly exposed sectors
  • The relationship between ESG risk exposure and the credit rating
  • A look ahead to emerging ESG and credit risks
