Better business

For our operations and value chain
We accelerated our work to embed responsible and sustainable decision making into our business. Since announcing science-based targets in 2019, we have exceeded our GHG emissions reductions targets and increased the share of our suppliers with science-based climate targets. Bolstered by this progress, we accelerated our net-zero timeline to 2040, a decade earlier than our previous commitment. Our pre-existing sustainability targets and other metrics are integrated into the metrics used to determine the compensation of all our senior executives.

Better lives

For our people and communities
We took meaningful steps to care for our employees and advance diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) across every aspect of our business. We met and, in some cases, exceeded our diversity goals to increase representation of women at officer and entry levels globally, and Black and LatinX leaders at senior levels in the U.S. In addition, we advanced on our ambition to achieve pay equity for our workforce. Outside our four walls, we worked to improve the lives and livelihoods of our surrounding communities through the Creating Opportunities for Racial Equity (CORE) program, as well as through the donation of over $6 million in Moody’s Foundation grants, corporate charitable contributions, value of volunteer hours and employee-driven giving.

Better solutions

For market transformation
Our solutions empower market participants to make better, more sustainable decisions. They provide greater transparency into ESG-related risks and opportunities and help our customers align investments more closely with regulatory and disclosure frameworks. Our strategic acquisitions and investments continue to expand our ESG risk monitoring and assessment capabilities. In September 2021, we acquired RMS, a leading global provider of climate and natural disaster risk modeling and analytics.
