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 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.”
Global Head, Corporate Social Responsibility, Moody’s Corporation
