KBRA Releases Research – The Graying of Japan and ESG Credit Implications

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases research on the credit implications of Japan’s aging (graying) population. In the case of Japan, demographic trends are important social factors that shape the sovereign’s credit metrics and public policy decisions.

Demographic challenges, including its graying population, contribute to Japan’s credit profile, alongside other important credit features such as reserve currency status and income level. This report highlights the relevance of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in sovereign credit analysis and forms a part of our growing research effort to improve transparency on the impact of ESG factors on credit quality.
