About the scores
Issuer Profile Scores (IPS)
are separate environmental, social and governance scores that assess an entity’s exposure to the categories of ESG that MIS regards as the most material to credit. The assessment of the exposure to E, S and G risks or benefits is based on the general ESG principles described in the methodology, and the scores provide a consistent way to express this assessment.
ESG Credit Impact Scores (CIS) reflect the impact of ESG considerations on the rating of an issuer or transaction. Whereas the E, S and G profile scores are based on an issuer’s or transaction’s outright exposure to ESG risks or benefits and ESG specific mitigants, the CIS places ESG considerations in the context of the issuer’s other credit drivers that are material to a given rating.
