The PRI’s ESG in credit risk and ratings project is for the first time bringing voices from the corporate side into the conversation on how to better incorporate EGS factors into credit analysis. Read the workshop highlights.
To see the progress CRAs are making to enhance the integration of ESG factors in credit risk analysis, in keeping with their commitment to the above Statement, check the PRI’s quarterly updates.
Issuers’ crisis preparations and responses, and bondholder engagement, are two key areas of focus when considering the credit implications of the COVID-19 pandemic through an environmental, social and governance (ESG) lens.
As well as continuing to engage with CRAs, the results from this survey will inform future discussions with ESG information providers, to help fixed income investors to best use available tools and analysis for ESG integration in their investment decisions.
Highlights of the milestones of the initiative since its start. The project is the first of its kind because of its credit focus and scale, with 21 forums held in 15 countries.
To address some of the disconnects between investors and CRAs that emerged at the start of the initiative, the PRI organised roundtables across the globe aimed at credit risk analysts, fixed income portfolio managers and strategists (ESG analysts were welcome if accompanying their colleagues). CRA representatives participated to explain how they incorporate ESG factors in their credit ratings and answered questions.
