Moody’s launches ESG360 platform

Moody’s has launched platform ESG360 to enable portfolio managers to identify the ESG leaders and laggards across themes, sectors and regions according to key metrics.

At launch, the platform contains ESG analyst-verified scores and modelled ESG and climate intelligence on over 10,000 private and public companies across the globe, but in the coming months Moody’s this will expand to cover the physical and transition climate risk data sets for 300 million companies.

Users will be able to report on portfolio level performance across a broad range of research lines, and analyse key risk metrics at both the portfolio and entity level. Moody’s said all data points will be clearly labelled with their relevance to industry standards and traceable to their source.

Andrea Blackman, managing director – global head of Moody’s ESG solutions, commented: “To understand the short- and long-term impact of ESG and climate exposures, market participants need a holistic and reliable view of risks and opportunities. The launch of Moody’s ESG360 demonstrates our commitment to providing comprehensive coverage to help portfolio managers make sustainable decisions with confidence.

“Coverage is much more than just a number; it’s a commitment to providing granular and clearly defined data, scores, and assessments – all delivered through platforms that meet customer needs.”

Alongside ESG360, Moody’s recently launched a corporate engagement platform ESG360 Connect, which enables corporates to easily connect with Moody’s regarding their sustainability disclosures and ensure accurate representation of their ESG data, ultimately expanding the data coverage that feeds into Moody’s ESG solutions.
