President and CEO message

Our planet and society are at a pivotal moment.

While climate change remains an existential risk, we face growing uncertainty from conflicts that may have seemed unimaginable not long ago. As the world grapples with these challenges, we at Moody’s re-emphasize our commitment to supporting inclusive and sustainable economies and communities.

As leaders in global integrated risk assessment, we are uniquely positioned to help the market make sense of sustainability. Our solutions help companies incorporate sustainability into their decisions and empower our customers to decode risk and unlock opportunities. Our new suite of climate solutions, for example, provides comprehensive measurement and evaluation tools that allow market participants to better understand, quantify and manage climate risks and opportunities.

Sustainability is not only a value driver for Moody’s. We strive to lead by example and are embedding responsible and sustainable decision-making across our firm. Last year, we accelerated our commitment to reach net-zero by 2040 – a decade earlier than the Paris Agreement goals. We are also working with our suppliers to help them advance their own sustainability targets.

Most importantly, we’re deeply invested in our people. We are proud to be widely recognized as a great place to work, and we continue to push ourselves to build a diverse workforce, compensate our employees equitably and fairly and support the well-being and professional development of our people through a wide range of impactful workplace programs. In our communities, we’re engaged through employee-driven giving and volunteer programs, and we support our partners with grants and charitable contributions, including a recent initiative that double-matched employee donations to support Ukraine relief efforts.

While we’re proud of the achievements laid out in this report, we know we have to continue the momentum and do much more. Earlier this year we introduced sustainability as a core pillar of our corporate strategy. Other advances in 2022 include further strengthening our global employee benefits, offering Sustainability and ESG training to all of our employees and continuing to integrate and enhance our ESG solutions. We also look forward to working with the Net Zero Financial Services Provider Alliance as part of the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) as we take the next steps towards aligning all our relevant products and services to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.

I thank all of our employees, partners and customers for everything they do with us to build a Better Business, support Better Lives, and deliver Better Solutions. We look forward to continuing our work to make our business, financial markets and global communities more sustainable, inclusive and resilient
