Moody’s: A Catalyst of Positive, System-Wide Change

Climate change is reshaping the world’s economies and societies. It is also redefining financial markets, which are becoming increasingly sophisticated in their demand for climate risk analytics. Companies realize it is essential to integrate responsible business actions into their strategies to achieve a sustainable future.

As a global integrated risk assessment firm, Moody’s understands its pivotal role in accelerating the transformation of markets to address climate change and to create more inclusive, sustainable economies. Contributing to a sustainable global future is a key business objective. Moody’s incorporates sustainability considerations into its solutions and service offerings and its corporate performance.

Climate change and environmental risk aren’t new areas for Moody’s. Moody’s Investors Service, for instance, published its first environmental risks heatmap in 2015 and has long been committed to help market participants understand the impact of climate risk on credit. Recent Moody’s research found that sectors representing nearly $9 trillion in rated debt have high inherent exposure to climate risk, through physical climate change or a transition to a low-carbon economy.

 

Moody’s ESG Solutions Group serves the growing global demand for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) insights. The newly established group provides a comprehensive, integrated suite of ESG customer solutions, bringing together capabilities from across the company to provide meaningful performance measurements and analysis.

 

Moody’s climate risk datasets, for example, provide a detailed view of the physical climate risks to key human and economic assets worldwide. Understanding this exposure is critical to price climate risk. It also helps in directing finance flows to enable adaptation and resilience where they’re most needed. Moody’s customers include banks, insurers and investors who are experiencing direct physical impacts from climate change; who worry about how clients or portfolio companies will fare in a world where we generate electricity and move goods without relying on fossil fuels; and who face pressure from regulators and investors to demonstrate they are preparing for and managing these risks adequately.

 

Moody’s is not a major emitter of greenhouse gas, but as a standard setter in the capital markets it knows it can serve as a role model for responsible corporate climate practices. Moody’s seeks to be a leader in climate action, adopting ambitious sustainability practices within its organization and value chain.

 

Last year, Moody’s set science-based targets to achieve net-zero emissions of greenhouse gasses, and it proactively engages with suppliers to do the same. These efforts and others put it on CDP’s ‘A List’ for tackling climate change. Moody’s is one of a small number of high-performing companies to achieve the highest possible score.

 

Moody’s strives to be a catalyst of positive, system-wide change and believes that, ultimately, success lies in integrating responsible practices into its business strategy.
