Tilt Programme Expands Climate-related Data for SMEs

Independent think tank Theia Finance Labs’ ‘Transforming in the low-carbon transition’ (Tilt) SME-climate methodology and data programme has collected climate-relevant data on more than 280,000 European companies across five European markets. This has led to SME-oriented database volume surpassing its original goal of 200,000 companies. Tilt’s data is now being road-tested by major European banks – including BBVA, Credit Agricole and ING – and as part of a joint research project with a large European Central Bank. As part of Tilt’s continued expansion it has signed a strategic partnership with Deloitte, with the objective of this partnership being to accelerate the development of the tilt programme by leveraging Deloitte’s model methodology knowledge and expertise, creating high volumes in data and developing a “robust” IT infrastructure. The partnership will see Tilt expand the use, quality and coverage of the dataset and reach its 2024 goal of one million covered businesses. Anne Schönauer, Tilt’s Project Lead, said: “Climate data for SMEs is becoming crucial if we want to achieve an equitable, nature-positive and net-zero future. We are delighted that Deloitte supports our open-source process of building the needed SME climate database and indicators to support banks in engaging with their clients and supporting climate actions of SMEs.”
