Vigeo Eiris, a leading global provider of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) research, data and assessments, has rebranded to become V.E, an Affiliate of Moody’s. The rebrand marks an important milestone in the transformational journey that V.E embarked upon when Moody’s Corporation acquired a majority stake in April 2019. V.E will operate as a key component of Moody’s newly-formed ESG Solutions Group.
The new brand reflects V.E’s ongoing growth and underlines a renewed focus on customers and the development of new and enhanced products and solutions. In 2020, V.E has launched enhancements to its Second Party Opinion (SPO) services for bonds and loans as well as its TCFD Climate Strategy Assessment and EU Taxonomy Alignment Screening tool. Select V.E content is now also available on Moody’s CreditView, Moody’s flagship research, data and analytics platform serving credit market professionals. Alongside the new visual identity, V.E has articulated new corporate values for its employees and has relocated its headquarters from Bagnolet to Montreuil (Paris) in order to accommodate growth.
For thirty years, the Vigeo Eiris logo has carried the company and its values from an incipient ESG market to the global movement that we are seeing today. The new V.E logo provides us with a sharp and forward-looking identity. Under our new flag and as a key part of Moody’s ESG Solutions Group, we remain committed to accelerating the growth of ESG and sustainable finance globally.
Sabine Lochmann, President of V.E, an affiliate of Moody’s
