Data and analytics you can act on today to create a sustainable tomorrow

Create a sound ESG strategy that can help align your investment portfolio with global goals and protect insurance liabilities and reinsurance recoverables from negative impacts related to ESG factors.

Gain multiple layers of ESG insight with S&P Global ESG Scores, powered by the deep heritage of the S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA). Comprehensive data sources, a sound methodology, and a sharp focus on issues that are financially material provide you with a view into a range of ESG factors that are expected to have an impact on a company’s growth, profitability, capital efficiency, and risk exposure.

Know where companies are headed

Access Trucost SDG Analytics to see how companies are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Formally adopted by 193 countries, the 17 SDGs recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth.

Use Trucost Paris Alignment Data and analytical tools to help track a company’s alignment with the Paris Agreement goals of limiting global warming to 1.5ºC and 2ºC. Data spans 14,000 companies representing 99% of global market capitalization.

Understand potential vulnerabilities

Evaluate the climate-related financial and credit risks of counterparties with Climate Credit Analytics that translates climate scenarios into drivers of financial performance tailored to specific industries. These drivers are then used to forecast complete company financial statements under various climate scenarios, including those published by the Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS), a group of over 80 central banks and supervisors.

Determine the negative exposure you many face due to climate-related physical risks with Trucost Physical Risk Data. This covers seven risk indicators − including heatwaves, cold waves, water stress, hurricanes, wildfires, flood, and sea level rise – under low, moderate, and high future climate change scenarios, with estimates of impacts in 2020, 2030, and 2050.

Stress test a company’s current ability to absorb future carbon prices with Trucost Carbon Earnings at Risk Data. Integral to this analysis is the calculation of the Unpriced Carbon Cost, which is defined as the difference between what a company pays for carbon today and what it may pay at a given future date based on its sector, operations, and a given policy price scenario.

Create a clear roadmap for moving towards a sustainable future

Join the effort to bring transparency to climate risk throughout capital markets with reporting that can help make markets more efficient and economies more resilient. Our TCFD Analytics Suite enables you to analyze historical and forward-looking scenario-based transition and physical risks to support climate-related disclosures in line with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
