ISS ESG’s dedicated team of climate change experts provide financial market participants, governments and universities with market-leading carbon and climate data and state-of-the art portfolio analytics.
The Portfolio Analytics reporting tool on our proprietary DataDesk platform enables investors to assess their exposure to climate risks with the click of a button. For public equity and fixed income strategies, the Climate Impact Report provides detailed analyses of Scope 1&2 and Scope 3 emissions, transition and physical risks and climate scenario analysis based on the IEA’s Sustainable Development Scenario, which is in line with the Paris Agreement towards a below 2°C world.
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.
Includes the TCFD’s weighted average carbon intensity and additional metrics assessing climate-related risks and opportunities.
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.
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.
Detailed assessment of company and portfolio exposure to transition risks and opportunities related to carbon pricing and demand changes, impacts on operating costs and revenues, fossil fuel reserves, power generation, and controversial energy extraction practices. Includes forward-looking returns-based analysis quantifying the potential financial impact of a net zero scenario.
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.
