Moody’s Partners with EVORA Global to Provide Physical Climate Risk Data to Real Asset Investors
Real asset sustainability consultancy EVORA Global and Moody’s ESG Solutions Group announced today a new partnership, aimed at driving physical climate risk transparency for real asset investors.
Under the new partnership, Moody’s ESG Solutions’ Climate on Demand risk analytics will be integrated into EVORA Global’s ESG data management platform SIERA, powering EVORA’s new Physical Climate Risk (PCR) module. The new PCR module provides asset-and fund level insights into hazard exposure and risk scores for climate change-related hazards, including flood, hurricane & typhoon, sea-level rise, wildfire, heat stress, and water stress.
Emilie Mazzacurati, Global Head of Climate Solutions in Moody’s ESG Solutions Group, said:
“We are delighted to partner with EVORA to help their customers assess how their real estate investments may be exposed to the physical impacts of climate change.”
Moody’s Climate on Demand tool scores any location worldwide on its exposure to climate hazards out to the 2030-2040 decade, and it allows users to drill down into risk drivers, exploring underlying indicators capturing different dimensions of risk for each hazard.
The SIERA platform analyses physical climate risk data alongside other collated ESG data, including carbon emissions, to enable users to understand an asset’s risks and opportunities in one platform, build resilience across their portfolio, and make informed, data-driven investment decisions.
Meghan Johnson, Associate Director of Climate Resilience Services, EVORA Global, said:
“At EVORA Global, we help clients better understand their exposure to changing climate hazards, the vulnerability of their assets to those hazards, and what steps they can take to become more resilient. Access to high-quality, decision-useful climate risk data is a crucial foundation to building climate resilience, so we are excited to introduce the new SIERA physical climate risk module and Moody’s partnership to our clients.”
