We identify best practices in each sector that align with Five Sustainable Finance Goals while also taking into consideration the overarching environmental, legal and regulatory frameworks that issuers operate within.
These best practices, or “material factors” reflect the beneficial impact of a bond, including how well it aligns with a just transition to a decarbonized economy.
We are collaborators, continuously working with debt capital market participants to design and implement ESG data products that solve for today’s challenges in decarbonizing global economies. Explore our platform or reach out to start a discussion.
