“Our study is the first large-sample empirical study of the mechanisms that link ESG performance to credit risk.  We found that Truvalue Labs’ ESG scores capture timely and material events such as regulatory inquiries, investigations and lawsuits, which are correlated with credit risk and the likelihood of default.” 
Witold J. Henisz, Professor of Management, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania
