ESG in Credit
In this insightful white paper, we outline our approach to evaluating ESG risks in all our rated sectors and highlight key trends and patterns.
The profile of sustainability around the world continues to grow, particularly as the recent pandemic brought social issues sharply into focus, as well as environmental issues and outcomes.
Fitch Ratings remains the only credit rating agency with an entity/transaction-specific, credit-focused approach to displaying sector and issuer level ESG credit risks across its rated entities. During 2020 Fitch continued to build tools and collateral providing insights into how ESG risks impact credit rating decisions, and launched a new credit research product - ESG Vulnerability Scores designed to help investors understand the relative credit risk vulnerability of sectors and entities to long-term environmental-related changes.
