Investors Still Face Data Challenges

Obtaining comprehensive, reliable and comparable climate-related data continues to be difficult for investors, according to a new report published by the CFA Institute Research and Policy Center. The report assessed current usage of climate data in the investment process and subsequent challenges, recent developments in disclosure regulation and standards, and how investors can better navigate data imperfection. Many jurisdictions still lack measures requiring firms to disclose climate-related information, the report found. In instances where disclosure standards existed, the requirements varied from one place to another, making data consistency and comparability difficult for global investors. “Investors should not let the current shortcomings in climate-related data prevent them from evaluating the investment risks and opportunities associated with climate change,” said Chris Fidler, Head of Global Industry Standards at the CFA Institute. “Instead, [they] should use their judgement to make effective use of the data available to them and be conscious of [its] limitations.”
