Learn how climate risks and opportunities could affect your portfolio with just a few clicks
Climate change poses financial risks and opportunities for business and companies. Current business models and their strategic resilience are facing major challenges due to climate change.
Although the consequences of climate change can change the risk-return profile of financial investments, there is often still uncertainty and a lack of transparency about their potential impact and drivers. However, it is precisely this transparency that supervisory authorities such as the ECB, PRA, BaFin and other regulators such as the EU Commission demand.
PwC's Climate Excellence software for climate scenario analysis (climate risk assessment tool) enables you to quickly and easily identify opportunities and risks resulting from climate change in your portfolios and understand how they might affect sectors, sub-sectors, regions, technologies and companies over time.
Choose from climate scenarios along the Paris Agreement, and gain not only an impression of the risk drivers, but also an understanding of possible climate impacts and the opportunities of climate change. At the same time, you can create the basis for transparent climate reporting that is always up to date according to current reporting standards.
Climate Excellence was developed together with experts from the financial sector and leading academic institutions and has been successfully used in the market for more than seven years. Our Portfolio Risk Assessment Tool is equally suitable for the financial and real economy.
Climate Excellence covers a wide range of financial parameters with over 50 countries and more than 40,000 listed financial stocks, across all sectors.
Results from Climate Excellence can be directly integrated into your existing processes. The fundamental analysis of climate impacts based on production facilities, products and supply chains enables an understanding of the effects of climate-related changes in demand, regulation and technologies - beyond carbon dioxide pricing.
Climate Excellence helps you to reflect on the effects of your strategic and corporate actions and to communicate your commitment.
Always be prepared to communicate adequately and proactively with stakeholders: e.g. in climate reporting according to the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) and the EU Guidelines on non-financial reporting: Supplement on reporting climate-related information, as well as disclosures e.g. according to the Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance.
