Carbon Data & Transition Risks

Carbon Data Transition Risks

We provide a comprehensive database of carbon footprints based on our Carbon Impact Analytics (CIA) methodology, thus measuring contribution to the transition towards a low-carbon economy, and the inherent exposure to transition risks. Precise metrics enhance investment decisions, climate risk management, alignment with the low carbon transition and sustainable finance reporting.

Physical Risks

Physical Risks

Climate Risk Impact Screening (CRIS) is a method developed for financial service providers to assess the exposure of their portfolio to climate-related physical risks. This method, designed to flag potential risks and inform investment strategy, is a function of location-specific climate hazards and sector-specific vulnerability.

Biodiversity Impacts

Biodiversity Impacts

The Biodiversity Impact Analytics powered by the Global Biodiversity Score™ (BIA-GBS) allows to measure the biodiversity impact of companies. Investors can identify biodiversity hotspots in their portfolios and use biodiversity impact data for decision making and to engage with key stakeholders. By offering large-scale biodiversity data, BIA-GBS™ supports the transition of the financial sector to align with international targets and reduce the impact from multiple pressures on biodiversity, including Climate Change.

The stakes are high: it is a question of bringing simplicity, clarity and transparency to the financial sector, which is today opaque and complex. With Carbon4 Finance, we wanted to meet this challenge.
