To fully integrate ESG into decision making, investors, issuers, and markets need a more transparent, consistent, and quantified assessment of the credit impact of ESG issues.
Moody’s Investors Service published an updated ESG Cross Sector Methodology in December 2020 introducing new ESG Issuer Profile and Credit Impact Scores for rated entities. On January 18, 2021, Moody’s published ESG scores for rated sovereigns. During the course of 2021, Moody’s plans will expand to an increasing number of issuers and transactions across corporates, infrastructure, public finance and financial institutions.

Investors are increasingly utilizing ESG data to inform investment decisions, but a lack of standardization and communication with corporations is leading to confusion and limiting the acceleration of corporate sustainability initiatives. As the premier ESG online event, GreenFin 21 will convene an invitation-only audience from the sustainability, finance and investment communities to improve communication, align investor expectations with corporate needs and showcase leading practices and financial products.
