ESG integration 

The correlation between ESG and credit worthiness

It is clear that whether as private corporations, public or non-governmental organisations, we cannot afford to sacrifice ESG factors in the pursuit of economic growth and business profitability. We have observed the increasing correlation between non-payments and insolvencies influenced by severe climate-related events and social unrests.

In face of these unpredictable events, we at Euler Hermes are deepening our investment in data management and ESG knowledge to reinforce our resilience, and better serve our customers. In January 2020, we became the first credit insurer to include ESG risks into our country ratings to help businesses unveil potential blind spots in their investments. 

Our video series featuring Ludovic Subran, Chief Economist  and Wilfried Verstraete, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Euler Hermes SA (Bruxelles - Belgium)  outline how integrating ESG makes business sense not just for Euler Hermes but more so for companies.
Everyone around the world has an important role to play in shaping the path for a more sustainable future. This is our strategy.
We all have a civic duty to provide protect the well-being of the greater community. This is how our teams across 50 countries put it into action.
