This consultation will help the Commission gain a better insight on the functioning of the market for ESG ratings, as well as better understand how credit rating agencies (CRAs) incorporate ESG risks in their creditworthiness assessment. Responses from market participants will feed into an impact assessment that will evaluate whether a possible policy initiative on ESG ratings and on sustainability factors in credit ratings is needed. These actions are expected to contribute to the achievement of the European green deal objectives by improving the quality of information on which basis investors, businesses and other stakeholders take decisions impacting the transition to a sustainable economy.
