Our analysts work to ensure that we provide essential insights into ESG factors.
ESG in Ratings
S&P Global Ratings has long considered Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors in its credit ratings and we capture ESG factors in many areas of our methodology. In the two year period from 2015 to 2017 there were more than 1,000 corporate ratings for which an environmental or social factor was an important element in our ratings analysis.

At the same time, long-term investors are also recognizing the threat from greenhouse gases and have begun to diversify portfolios away from carbon-based investment. The final push is coming from corporations as they start to contend with the consequences of increasingly extreme and violent weather and flooding. Many are starting to see that managing environmental exposure may be more than risk management; it may be good for business.
