Sustainalytics’ Climate Solutions
Our comprehensive framework measures the degree to which a company’s projected greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions differ from a net-zero pathway between now and the year 2050. The ratings measure an issuer's exposure from their expected emissions, while also accounting for management actions. Investors are enabled to respond to regulatory initiatives, implement net-zero strategies, and fulfill client net-zero mandates.
The metrics are designed to help investors understand their direct and indirect exposure to physical climate change and the potential financial impacts to their portfolio companies. The direct and indirect exposure metrics are calculated as separate signals that align with TCFD recommendations and roll-up to a single overall exposure signal.
Designed to provide investors with powerful insights to assess and analyze companies’ GHG emissions, our Carbon Emissions Data is backed by best-in-class multi-factor regression models to estimate greenhouse gas emissions. With our sophisticated estimation models and high-quality data, investors can respond to regulatory requirements and initiatives such as the EU Action Plan, TCFD, and PRI.Learn More
