Brief description of the data offering

The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) reporting framework has been adopted or recommended by many regulatory bodies globally as a model for reporting climate-related financial information. ICE’s data and analytics can support TCFD-aligned reporting. ICE’s TCFD Data uses company level climate transition data and analytics, ESG entity data, and green bond data, to provide information for TCFD reporting.

By using multiple primary sources of data and sophisticated modelling, ICE offers company emissions data, foot-printing, net zero analysis, avoided emissions, temperature targets, and emissions projections to 2050.

Where and how do you source your data?

ICE has its own emissions and temperature targets data collection process, carried out by a team of ESG data researchers. Researchers collect data from public sources including but not limited to annual reports, financial statements and sustainability reports. The companies identified for emissions data analysis (~5,500) is reviewed annually to ensure comprehensive coverage. Data for each company is independently analysed by two ESG data researchers before going through broader quality assurance and outlier analysis. A component of the analysis includes assessing the completeness of the data reported by each company.
