Prepare your data strategy for a low-carbon future

Banks are quickly adapting strategies to integrate climate change risks into their asset returns calculations, but a key challenge is securing accurate and sufficient data to use in risk modeling. In this blog, we describe how to improve data and modeling infrastructures to make your organization’s climate-risk strategy ready for a low-carbon future.

Read our recommendations on:

  • Obtaining specific and accurate geospatial data to model banks segment physical risks to your assets
  • Understanding the importance of the physical characteristics of collateral and its adaptations to climate change
  • Sourcing better historical data related to climate events and environmental regulations
