We believe climate change will impact capital markets, creating new risks and opportunities. Working with Woodwell Climate Research Center, one of the world’s leading independent climate research institutes, we research physical climate risks and integrate science-based insights and projections into investment decisions made on our clients’ behalf.
Aligned with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure recommendations, this report describes our data-driven processes for monitoring, evaluating, and managing material climate-related risks and opportunities. We also describe our approach to engagement on climate change. Finally, we outline the processes, metrics, and output of our own climate disclosures.
Working with Woodwell has helped us understand the inextricable linkages between these climate risk categories. We engage with companies to help them build resiliency to both.
We intend to partner with asset owners on their decarbonization goals, in recognition of the potential impact of the low-carbon transition on security valuations. This opportunity enables us to deepen engagements with portfolio companies and enhance consultative partnerships with clients.
Our collaborative engagements complement our ongoing one-on-one dialogue with companies. We support the main asks of Climate Action 100+: accountability and oversight, TCFD-aligned disclosures, and science-based decarbonization targets.
Extensive collaboration among our research teams has resulted in a set of innovative tools that enable our investors to integrate data on physical and transition risks into investment decision making.
Our geospatial finance tool enables our investors to isolate or combine views of seven climate factors — heat, drought, floods, hurricanes, wildfires, water access, and sea-level rise. Overlaying this data onto geographic maps helps our investors identify “hot spots” that warrant further fundamental research.
In this three-minute video, we share the climate-exposure risk-analysis tool we have developed in partnership with Woodwell Climate Research Center. This software helps our investment teams track and assess physical climate risks facing capital-market assets around the world.
This dashboard facilitates comparison of companies against peers and average industry intensity. It includes the historical trend of Scopes 1 and 2 emissions intensity, as well as Scopes 1, 2, and 3 intensity figures, leveraging estimated Scope 3 datasets.
This one-stop view is designed to help us monitor progress toward our net-zero milestones by combining climate-relevant data from company engagements (including holdings with science-based targets) and portfolio construction (including weighted-average carbon intensity).
