Abstract:     
This work is aligned with the Equator Principles that are minimum criteria for granting of credit to ensure that the funded projects are developed in a socially and environmentally responsible way. The objective of this paper is to verify the relevance of social and environmental variables included in the credit analysis. The main results show the relevance of social and environmental variables for the improvement of credit score models. It might be inferred also that models should provide more robust results as the social and environmental variables are standardized and incorporated into the audited financial statements of companies.
