Our Research Approach

We work from within the financial sector to help investors accurately price fossil fuel risk. We do this by providing them with the most recent and relevant information about climate change and the effect it will have on their investment portfolios:

  • Our analytical research identifies the highest cost, riskiest investments enabling greater scrutiny by analysts, asset owners, investors and financial regulators.
  • Our regulatory research builds the case for reform of the financial regulatory system in order to improve transparency about the climate risk of fossil fuels.

We also support investors in their efforts to persuade energy companies to disclose more detailed economics and justify the capital expenditure plans they have.

As a result, we are mobilising the financial community to work to ensure that the whole financial system is better safeguarded against climate risk.
