Overview

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors are becoming influential in financial decision making and also have implications for credit. What role do they play in determining credit ratings as we move towards a more sustainable future?

Join us for the inaugural Moody's ESG Conference, where analysts and guest speakers will discuss the impact of environmental, social and governance factors on credit risk and their integration into Moody’s ratings. We will also share research, case studies and frameworks to help you navigate the complexities of ESG in a credit environment.

Agenda Highlights

  • Learn which sectors are most affected by environmental issues
  • Understand through case studies how ESG factors influence country and local government ratings  
  • Focus on the credit implications of carbon transition and the physical impact of climate change
