Bringing clarity,
fairness, and knowledge

Moody’s purpose is to bring clarity, fairness, and knowledge to an interconnected world. We believe that knowledge fuels opportunity. The core of our business is to provide insights that help equip participants in the global financial markets to understand risks and move forward with critical insight. Our approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR) is rooted in this same belief.

Through Moody’s Foundation, our CSR programs, and employee engagement activities, we are helping to build toward a world where more people have access to opportunity and where everyone has the resources to grow and thrive.

Our CSR strategy strives to empower people with the capability, resources and confidence they need to create a better future — for themselves, for their communities, and for the environment.
