The S&P global market is launching a climate-linked credit analytics model suite. The new tool will provide new credit risk assessments in which companies under a different range of climate scenarios will undergo risk assessments accordingly. The model is mainly designed to access a carbon footprint of an economy and low-carbon is the ideal. In the transition to low carbon, this model will help ensure businesses meet the standards and have an incentive to do so for a better credit score and healthier environment.
- Climate change isn’t just an environmental concern these days. It’s also a giant concern for big business.
- in particular, fiscal entities will need to fully appreciate just how a low carbon-based economy will impact the creditworthiness of their counterparties.
- S&P Global Market Intelligence, in collaboration with Oliver Wyman, has collaborated in the creation of a climate and credit specific analytical model suite.
“The multi-sector climate-linked credit analytics models will become available on a rolling basis throughout 2020 and 2021.”
