On February 1, 2019 Institutional Asset Manager reported that “S&P Global Ratings has started to include environmental, social, and governance (ESG) sections within its issuer credit rating reports on corporate entities.
Michael Wilkins, Managing Director and head of Sustainable Finance, S&P Global Ratings, says: ‘The fixed-income market’s heightened focus on ESG has only emerged recently. However, ESG has been at the heart of our ratings approach for many years. We have long incorporated ESG considerations into our credit analysis. What we aim to do now is to more clearly underline to industry bodies, investors, and stakeholders how we do so.’”
