ISS ESG Develops Scenario Analysis Dataset

ISS ESG, the sustainable investment arm of ISS STOXX, has introduced a new scenario analysis dataset for its evolving suite of climate solutions. Public climate pathways have been incorporated into the dataset, including the International Energy Agency’s World Energy Outlook 2022, the UN Environment Programme’s One Earth Climate Model, and phase 3 of the Network for Greening the Financial System Climate Scenarios – alongside net-zero scenarios based on the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero recommendations. The dataset also covers around 30,000 issuers, with outputs such as Implied Temperature Rise and cross-point year metrics. “The new dataset helps investors assess a portfolio’s alignment with up to 22 scenarios provided by leading public pathways, to satisfy evolving global and regional climate-related reporting requirements, and to conduct a broad range of benchmarking analyses across sectors and regions,” said Till Jung, Head of ISS ESG. “ISS ESG is delighted to announce this significant augmentation of its comprehensive suite of climate solutions, with further innovations planned in coming months.”
