Brief description of the data offering

Company-level asset-based indicators aggregate data from 250,000+ physical assets across 9 high greenhouse gas emitting sectors owned by 60,000+ public and private companies under a consistent framework ensuring comparability across companies.   

The Essential historical and forward-looking indicators include, for each of the 60,000+ companies, capacity, production, emissions intensities and absolute emissions, geolocation information, and company information to facilitate matching to financial portfolios. Advanced indicators include in addition separation of emissions by scopes, additional consolidation methodologies to link assets to companies, extended time horizons, and data to facilitate matching to portfolios.

Company asset-based indicators are used by financial institutions to, among others, assess and manage transition and physical risks, conduct climate scenario analysis, set targets, measure and report progress, calculate financed emissions, leverage climate-related opportunities, and craft engagement strategies with investee companies.  

Where and how do you source your data?

We partner with leading business intelligence providers and open-source data initiatives to source data on physical assets in the real economy. Our team maps the physical assets with security issuers using ownership data from various third-party sources. We calculate key indicators at asset, company and security level including greenhouse gas emissions metrics using our in-house bottom-up asset-based algorithms and methodologies. We triangulate multiple data sources across the sectors we cover, work with data providers to fill data gaps, and complement this with our own research. Finally, we also gather information and feedback directly from some of the companies we cover, and through partnerships with research institutions. This consistent framework enables comparability across assets, companies and sectors. 

What is the cost for your data offering?

The cost is variable and depends on the granularity and coverage of the data, the use case for the data, and the size and type of user (non-profit research, commercial application).
