Companies need to stand for something more than just generating profits.
In recent years, stakeholders, ranging from governments and investors to employees and consumers, have increasingly demanded that businesses have high ethical standards and are run sustainably. For nearly every company, this is very much a journey, and we believe that as an industry and an organisation, we have a duty to ensure and enable a sustainable transition.

What is the balanced scorecard?
Our data driven scorecard measures the ESG performance of clients and business partners, helping them to become more sustainable.
The scorecard’s design combines Chaucer’s insight into counterparty risk with Moody’s deep ESG and risk modelling expertise to evaluate businesses’ risks and opportunities at an in-depth level. By delivering a calibrated output, driven by Moody’s comprehensive ESG assessments coverage and double materiality methodology, we are able to help our counterparties understand their risk both from a stakeholder and an enterprise perspective.
The ESG Balanced Scorecard uses 158 unique data points to assign scores for corporates across Environmental, Social and Governance factors and is designed to be a holistic approach to ESG measurement across underwriting, operations, and investments. Metrics upon which corporates are rated include:
- disclosure of greenhouse gas emissions
- integration of environmental factors into the supply chain
- health and safety conditions of workers
- involvement in the local community and support of local infrastructure
- boardroom diversity
- among many others
