SEPTEMBER 27, 2019
Climate issues continue to gain momentum in the financial community, and investors are increasingly scrutinising companies with fossil fuel reserves. Decarbonizing the energy system is key in limiting the impacts of climate change, and this means limiting the use of, and society’s dependence on, fossil fuels. Accordingly, attention is now turning to companies with high-carbon assets, in line with global efforts to transition to a low-carbon economy. However, accounting for fossil fuel reserves and setting them in relation to a carbon budget is not as straight-forward as it might seem.
To assist in this endeavour, ISS ESG offers carbon reserves data based on company disclosures, reviews of third-party data and other public sources, and proprietary modelling. In addition, ISS ESG provides greenhouse gas (GHG) emission estimations of company reserves in order to guide investors through their portfolio analysis.
