Morningstar Sustainalytics Upgrades Physical Climate Risk Tool

Global ESG data, research and ratings provider Morningstar Sustainalytics has enhanced its Physical Climate Risk Metrics (PCRM) product to offer deeper insight into companies’ exposure, loss and financial resiliency regarding physical climate risks. It has incorporated new indirect risk metrics to better meet the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations on disclosing both direct and indirect physical climate risks across the entire business value chain, including major storms, wildfires, and floods. The PCRM dataset further aims to provide insight into how physical climate risks impact a company’s revenue, physical asset value, and operating cash flow. Azadeh Sabour, Senior Vice President of Climate Solutions at Morningstar Sustainalytics, said: “With the increasing global adoption of climate-related regulation to accelerate decarbonisation and within the limited time to mitigate the effects of global warming, investors need data and insights to understand their exposure to financial risks stemming from the increasingly frequent and devastating climate events.”  

The practical information hub for asset owners looking to invest successfully and sustainably for the long term. As best practice evolves, we will share the news, insights and data to guide asset owners on their individual journey to ESG integration.
