ESG & Climate Risk Summit Europe 2023
As the ESG trend continues to grow, more clients want assurance that their portfolios are not contributing to climate change. As a result, banks, asset managers, and funds will want to consider:
Carbon pollution by company
Carbon pollution by sector
With the growing demand for ESG data in order to become more net-zero, organizations are needed to participate in the climate movement. It is important for companies to give information on their carbon pollution in three tiers:
Scope 1 – direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
Scope 2 – indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
Scope 3 – indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions within the value chain of a company
Scope 3 disclosure is the hardest to monitor and we will discuss how to improve all forms of disclosure.
In addition to carbon disclosure data, there are other aspects of ESG that can inform investors on a company’s impact on the climate and their financial outlook. This includes data such as:
Water stress levels
Climate risk modeling
Whether we like it or not, climate change is already here. What is important at this point is minimizing its impact and determining risk through scenario analysis. Climate risk modeling will help determine impacts on company balance sheets from paying damages, losses, or reductions in future potential profits. These are all impacted by growing:
Extreme weather events
Shortages impacting supply chain
Sea level rise/flooding
Asset owners and investors are choosing to use their capital for the greater good. Companies and individual investors can be influential by:
Divesting from heavy polluters
Investing in heavy polluters to influence company decisions from within
Investing in climate solutions
USA is much more ahead of other global regions when it comes to imposing climate friendly regulations. We will seek to explore what other regulations are expected in the future and how to stay compliant.
