Know how climate risks and opportunities could impact your portfolio with just a few clicks
Climate change poses financial risks and opportunities for business and enterprises. Current business models and their strategic resilience face significant challenges from climate change. Although climate change impacts can alter the risk-return profile of financial assets, there is often still too much opacity and uncertainty about their potential impacts and drivers. However, it is precisely this transparency that regulators such as the European Central Bank (ECB), the UK Financial Services Authority (PRA) or the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) and other regulators such as the EU Commission are demanding.
PwC's Climate Excellence climate scenario analysis software (climate risk assessment tool) enables you to quickly and easily identify climate change opportunities and risks in your portfolios and understand how they might play out over time at the sector, subsector, regional, technology and company levels. Select different climate scenarios along the Paris Climate Agreement and gain not only an impression of the risk drivers, but also an understanding of potential climate impacts and opportunities. At the same time, you create the basis for your transparent climate reporting, which is always "up-to-date" and complies with current reporting standards.
