What is the credit impact of ESG for an issuer?
How is the issuer exposed to ESG risks / benefits?
Our scores provide greater transparency about how we incorporate ESG considerations into credit ratings.
- 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. IPSs, where available, are inputs to credit ratings
- We also provide Carbon Transition Assessment (CTA) which provides a consistent and verifiable means to analyze carbon transition risk for rated non-financial companies.
