Moody’s announced that it has appointed Emilie Mazzacurati as Global Head of Moody’s Climate Solutions. In this newly-established role, Mazzacurati will oversee the climate solutions suite within Moody’s ESG Solutions Group, a new business unit formed earlier this year to serve the growing global demand for ESG and climate analytics. Mazzacurati will report to Andrea Blackman, Global Head of Moody’s ESG Solutions.
“Emilie’s extensive climate expertise will be vital to our continued development of climate solutions and to ensuring that Moody’s is a leading voice in this important area,” said Blackman.
As part of its climate solutions suite, Moody’s ESG Solutions provides risk measurement and evaluation tools to understand, quantify and manage climate risks for physical and transition risk, informing due diligence and risk disclosure in line with the recommendations from the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
Climate risk analytics from Moody’s ESG Solutions are also integrated into Moody’s Analytics risk management tools, translating climate risk exposure into financial impact and credit risk metrics for banks, insurers, and investors. Similarly, the group’s climate data and insights are increasingly being leveraged in Moody’s Investors Service credit analysis. By offering data and analytics across asset classes, including listed and unlisted companies, real estate, infrastructure, sovereigns, and municipalities, Moody’s ESG Solutions supports the integration of climate-related risks into financial decision-making and risk management.
