Brief description of the data offering

Moody’s Ratings Second Party Opinions (SPOs) provide an assessment of how financial instruments or financing frameworks align to relevant sustainability principles and the extent to which they are expected to contribute to the issuer’s advancement of long-term sustainable development.

Where and how do you source your data?

In establishing SPOs, we may consider data, information, or assessments found in or calculated or estimated from an issuer’s public disclosures, in particular, the financial instrument documentation or financing framework; published research or indicators (e.g., proprietary scores) of Moody’s Ratings or other Moody’s entities; or relevant third-party sources. We may also use non-public information provided by the issuer.
