Get ahead of climate risk

Getting ahead of climate risk requires a detailed understanding of your environmental footprint – as well as forward looking metrics on your exposure to physical and transition climate risks.

Trucost Paris Alignment

Powered by Trucost's analysis of company reported data, climate models, and other scientific sources, this dataset enables you to assess company-level alignment with the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to well below 2°C from pre-industrial levels, based on Science-Based Targets recommended SDA and GEVA approaches.


Trucost Environmental

Trucost’s environmental dataset provides standardized environmental and climate performance profiles on 15,0000 companies representing 99% of global market capitalization, enabling you to comprehensively assess environmental footprints including greenhouse gas emissions, pollutant impacts, fossil fuel dependency, power generation, water use, natural resource efficiency and waste disposal.

The data comes from a variety of sources, including company annual reports, direct disclosures, scientific literature, and an array of national, international, and industry databases, industry “top-down” data, as well as sector-specific “bottom-up” data, all quality checked by specialist analysts and validated through direct engagement with companies.

Trucost Environmental Data is on XpressAPI provides clients with Company Environmental data - clients can pull 114 data items for a given company to assess the environmental impact of a company’s direct, supply chain, and downstream operations.


Private Companies Environmental Data

We are launching a new Private Company Environmental Data (PCD) package.  As part of this first release of PCD coverage, we will cover 5k companies from our CIQ PCD universe that represent private companies with public debt.  Coverage will expand to 2M companies by year end.  Leveraging the same imputation expertise, we have extended the Trucost environmental model to provide damage costs attributed to GHGs, Land/Water/Air Pollutants, Waste, Water, and Natural Resource Use. 

Trucost Carbon Earnings at Risk

Trucost's Carbon Earnings at Risk data enables you to assesses company-level exposure to current and future carbon pricing scenarios. 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 under different climate change scenarios.

This dataset can be used to stress test a company's current ability to absorb future carbon prices and understand potential earnings at risk from carbon pricing on a portfolio level and report to stakeholders on forward-looking estimates of financial risks in line with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

Physical risk asset level scores

Trucost's Physical Risk dataset assesses company exposure to seven climate-related hazards (sea-level rise, flooding, heatwaves, coldwaves, drought, hurricanes, and wildfires) under low, medium and high climate change scenarios based on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP).

The dataset includes coverage of over >2.7 million assets mapped to >15,000 listed companies, with risk metrics provided from a 2020 baseline to 2030 and 2050.

Company and asset level scores have been updated for 2020. We also added coverage of asset level data and future scenario projections for river flood and sea-level rise.
