Build on science to manage
your climate financial risks

We bring to the financial industry science-based solutions for climate financial risk assessment

CHALLENGE

Are you prepared for climate-related financial risk and opportunities?


”One of the most significant, and perhaps most misunderstood, risks that organizations face today relates to climate change. The large-scale and long-term nature of the problem makes it uniquely challenging“

G20 Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD)


”The NGFS recognises that there is a strong risk that climate related financial risks are not fully reflected in asset valuation.“

Central Bank and Supervisors Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS) report, April 2019


”Climate-related risks are a source of financial risk. It is therefore within the mandates of central banks and supervisors to ensure the financial system is resilient to these risks.”

François Villeroy de Galhau, Governor of the Banque de France

SCIENCE

CLIMAFIN delivers its services by building on core scientific know-how on climate financial risk. LEARN MORE >>

CLIMAFIN combines the analysis of large datasets on financial and industrial relationships with new financial network algorithms to estimate the propagation of climate shocks towards firms and the resulting impacts on financial assets.

SOLUTION

CLIMAFIN helps investors to navigate the low-carbon transition with forward-looking risk metrics.
Our scientific approach guarantees to our clients the transparency and the rigor required for internal and external validation. Decisions that impact capital requirements should be based on the best available scientific evidence.

Climate financial risk disclosure and reporting:

We support institutional investors in their reporting to ensure full compliance with national and international climate-related standards: TCFD, EU-NFRD, French Article 173. When you work with us, your reporting is backed by evidence published in leading scientific journals (e.g. Nature, Science).

Climate financial risk analytics:

We offer a complete suite of quantitative metrics and customized consulting services for climate risk assessment and multi-criteria portfolio optimization. We cover all asset classes and all relevant climate scenarios (e.g. IPCC, NGFS).

Climate financial risk modeling:

We support financial institutions in integrating climate physical and transition risks in their internal risk models through dedicated consulting services and tailored access to our data infrastructure.

CREDENTIALS

Ensure that you are fully compliant with regulation and aligned with investors’ requirements: build your climate reporting on transparent and science-based methodologies referenced and applied by regulators.
