Assess companies’ involvements in ESG controversies

Each controversy may relate to several facts or events, to their conflicting interpretations, legal procedures or non-proven claims. Moody’s screens a pre-defined population of companies on a daily basis, currently covering 10,000+ companies regarding their involvement in ESG controversies across 38 ESG issues.
