ESG Scores
What is the credit impact of ESG on rated issuers and how are they exposed to ESG risk and benefits?
  • Credit Impact Score (CIS) is an output of the rating process that indicates the extent, if any, to which ESG factors impact the rating of an issuer or transaction.
  • Issuer Profile Scores (IPS) are issuer-specific scores that assess an entity’s exposure to the categories of risks in the ESG classification from a credit perspective.
  • 我们还提供碳过渡指标 (CTI),为分析评级非金融公司的碳过渡风险提供了一致且可验证的方法。

How is ESG integrated into credit analysis?

我们于2019年1月首次发布的ESG一般原则方法正式确定了我们将ESG因素纳入评级的方法。对该方法进行了更新,以进一步解释我们在信用分析中对 ESG 的整合,特别是通过我们的 ESG 评分。
ESG factors are taken into consideration for all credit ratings. In our credit rating press releases, we include explanations about whether and how E, S or G is material to a rating action and/or to the rating level. Our issuer, sector and thematic research provides thought-leading insights about the credit impact of ESG.
