We believe that knowledge fuels opportunity. Moody's is a global integrated risk assessment firm with a mission to provide trusted insights and standards that help decision-makers act with confidence. Our approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR) is rooted in that same belief. We seek to empower people with the knowledge, resources and confidence they need to create a better future — for themselves, their communities and the environment.

“When our actions — individually and together as a company — give more people what they need in order to pursue their ambitions, it creates ever-widening ripples of opportunity throughout communities and our world.”

A better tomorrow doesn’t just happen by itself. At Moody’s, we believe access to opportunity can propel people toward life-changing success and communities across the world toward prosperity.
