Climate change and related climate policies are already affecting the financial sector and the value of investments across many asset classes. Meanwhile, demands for increased transparency on climate risk from investors and policymakers are growing.

South Pole offers asset managers and institutional investors a way to integrate holistic, forward-looking, and decision-friendly data and analysis on climate risks and opportunities into investment and disclosure strategies.

The investment climate is changing

Trillions of dollars need to be reallocated from high-carbon to low-carbon assets within the next decade. At the same time, failure to limit global temperature rise increases physical climate risk and creates greater investment challenges in the long term. The Paris Agreement recognises this in one of its core goals: to make all financial flows consistent with a pathway towards low-emission, climate-resilient growth. The recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) provide a clear roadmap for achieving this target.

For asset managers and institutional investors, understanding and disclosing the risks and the opportunities they are likely to face as a result of physical climate impacts, new policies, technologies and markets safeguards investment performance and prepares them for a changing world.
