New Assess ESG check
Passfort users can now benefit from a new Moody’s ESG Score data provider that will run an environmental, social, and governance (ESG) check to evaluate a profile’s ESG scores, including the overall score and the detailed score breakdown.
The Assess ESG check assesses the degree to which companies take into account ESG objectives in the definition and implementation of their strategy and policies. Assess ESG is composed of two scoring methodologies, analyst and predicted scores. Analyst scores are displayed for publicly traded companies when available, otherwise predicted scores that are calculated from a set of models are displayed.
How it works
The ESG data provider makes use of Moody's ESG Scores API.
The data provider uses the company data check template.
There is a banner at the top of the check page that tells you if the scores were generated by Moody's Analytics ESG Analysts (analyst scores) or by Moody's Analytics ESG Score Predictor (predicted scores).
An overall ESG score is provided along with a score for each Thematic pillar. Thematic pillars are environmental, social responsibility, and corporate governance. These three pillars enable users to assess and compare companies' performance in managing ESG-related dependencies to their business and impacts on their stakeholders and the environment.
The Detailed score breakdown shows additional scoring broken into six different criteria scores – business behavior, environment, corporate governance, human rights, human resources, and community involvement.
Each criteria score is further broken down into domain scores which provide a detailed look into the criteria scores that roll up into a thematic pillar, better illustrating the reason for each of the scores.
Thresholds for the overall ESG score and each of the thematic pillars can be configured in the data provider settings, causing the check to pass, partial-pass or fail based on the returned results.
The See historical data section provides previous ESG scores of a profile. This is only available for analyst scores.
