What data do you provide?

From carbon footprinting to calculating carbon earnings at risk using future carbon pricing scenarios, clients benefit from Trucost’s current and forward-looking data and risk and scenario analysis tools. With flexible delivery options over FTP feed, EBoard and partner platforms our multi-asset class analysis helps set a baseline by analysing a portfolio’s carbon footprint, fossil fuel exposure and energy mix. Trucost then overlays forward looking data – allowing clients to conduct scenario analysis around corporate earnings at risk from future carbon pricing scenarios and portfolio variation from a 2°C scenario. This insight can inform corporate engagement programs and strategic allocation decisions across investing, lending, and insurance underwriting.

Where and how do you source your data?

The company-disclosed, non-modelled data used by Trucost comes from a variety of publically disclosed sources such as company financial reports (Annual Reports, Financial Statements, 10-K/20- F reports, SEC/regulatory filings) and environmental data sources (CSR, Sustainability or Environmental Reports, the CDP, EPA filings), in addition to data published on company websites or other public sources. Trucost also provides each company the opportunity to share data directly via its direct engagement and data verification process. Trucost’s robust estimation model and methodology for large-, mid- and small-cap companies enables the gaps to be filled where disclosure is unavailable.

Who are the data users?

Trucost’s data is used by numerous market segments including asset managers, assets owners, banks, insurers, academics and corporates.

What is the cost for your data offering?

Pricing varies depending on the universe and scope of environmental data.
