Moody’s ESG Solutions has launched the Moody’s ESG360, a new platform aimed at providing portfolio managers with climate and environment, social and governance (ESG) data and insights on public and private companies.

“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,” said Andrea Blackman, managing director – global head of Moody’s ESG Solutions.

She added, “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.”

The platform allows portfolio managers to identify ESG leaders and laggards across themes, sectors, and regions, monitor and report on portfolio level performance across a broad range of research lines,

It also helps them analyse key risk metrics at both the portfolio and entity level.

All data points will be clearly labelled with their relevance to industry standards and traceable to their source.

Initially the ESG360 will provides access to Moody’s physical and transition climate risk data sets across a recently expanded universe of 10,000 companies globally.

The plan in the coming months is to further enhance the platform with Moody’s ESG insights, including coverage of 300 million public and private companies through a combination of modelled and ESG analyst-verified scores.

Driven by a double materiality approach that accounts for both financial and stakeholder impacts, Moody’s said its ESG data, scores, and assessments provide a comprehensive view of the ESG performance of companies – including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

This enables an assessment of how companies can create sustainable value for the environment, society, and stakeholders, as well as how companies are positioned to manage their exposure and response to ESG risks and opportunities.

The launch follows on from the introduction of Moody’s corporate engagement platform – ESG360 Connect – which enables corporates to connect with the rating agency regarding their sustainability disclosures and ensure accurate representation of their ESG data, ultimately expanding the data coverage that feeds into Moody’s ESG solutions.
