Hambro Builds Emissions Forecasting Tool with University

A proprietary greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions forecasting tool has been developed by UK-based active asset manager JO Hambro via a strategic partnership with the University of Exeter’s Global Systems Institute. Horizon will be used by investment teams at JO Hambro Capital Management, and its sustainable systems investing boutique, Regnan, to better understand the “alignment of corporate emissions to a low-carbon future”. According to the firm, the tool provides probabilistic forecasts of Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions at a company and portfolio level by using reported emissions and data on exogenous factors to create a behavioural model of a company’s emissions profile. “The enhanced visibility provided by Horizon supports our investment teams in interpreting the probable impact of future carbon taxes on company valuations and in identifying related climate engagements,” it added. Horizon analysis will also “form the backbone” of JO Hambro’s forthcoming Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures reporting.
