ESG is one factor among many when it comes to assessing credit ratings. However, the increasing relevance of environmental and social issues warrants treating ESG as a core factor in credit analysis. 

Climate risk, sustainability, diversity, data security, and income inequality are just a few examples of ESG considerations that will have massive implications on resource management. Aside from impacting credit quality, these diverse standards can also create risks and opportunities for investors.

In this webinar Bennett Saltzman, Data Scientist at Amenity will host Matt Kuchtyak, Assistant Vice President - ESG & Sustainable Finance at Moody's, and Sarah Sachs, Data Scientist at Amenity Analytics to discuss why ESG is now a significant component of evaluating credit risk and how Moody’s uses Amenity’s NLP to demonstrate how ESG considerations factor into its assessment of credit quality.

Key topics this webinar will cover:
  • How Corporates and Investors are currently using ESG in financial assessments and where ESG is headed
  • Why Moody’s considers ESG to be a core factor in its credit risk analysis
  • How Moody's is using Amenity’s ESG language model to demonstrate how ESG is influencing credit ratings
