FULFILL REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

The reports can assist investors in fulfilling requirements for internal and global external reporting initiatives, such as the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), Article 173 of the French Energy Transition Law, and the PRI, and can be used to stress-test portfolios.

KEY METRICS

TCFD METRICS

Includes the TCFD’s weighted average carbon intensity and additional metrics assessing climate-related risks and opportunities.

SCENARIO ANALYSIS

Assessment of a portfolio’s alignment with three climate scenarios provided by the International Energy Agency (IEA), including the Sustainable Development Scenario (SDS) that aligns with the Paris Agreement. The analysis also includes a qualitative climate target assessment and temperature scores.

STRESS TESTING

Analyse how different climate scenarios can impact the financial performance of your portfolio.

CARBON FOOTPRINT DATA

Scope 1&2 and Scope 3 emissions, including emission intensities.

TRANSITION RISKS

Detailed assessment of companies’ exposure to fossil fuel reserves, power generation, and controversial business practices related to climate change, as well as companies’ forward-looking carbon performance.

PHYSICAL RISKS

Provides estimates of financial impact due to increasing hazard intensity for the most likely and worst-case scenarios by 2050 across the five most costly weather hazards: floods, heat stress, wildfires, tropical cyclones, and drought.

ISS ESG’s Physical Climate Risk Analysis: Gauging Climate Change Impacts on Your Portfolio

Investors want to deepen their understanding of the financial impact of physical climate-related risks on their investments. With climate change expected to increase the occurrence and intensity of severe weather hazard impacts, the value of your portfolio holdings might be affected.

This video explores ISS ESG’s physical climate risk analysis tool, which enables investors to model hazard intensity increases, for likely and worst-case scenarios by 2050, across five of the costliest hazards: wildfires, tropical cyclones, heat stress, floods, and drought.
