Sustainable Credit: ESG is Key

It’s become the norm for equity investors to appraise a company on environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.

Bondholders increasingly realise that the non-financial aspects of a business’s performance can have a lasting effect on its creditworthiness and investibility – a growing body of academic research that broadly shows a positive correlation between how well a company rates on ESG metrics and its cost of capital.
