S&P Global Market Intelligence and Oliver Wyman launch Climate Credit Analytics a new model suite to evaluate climate risk impact throught the coverage of more than 700,000 companies globally

S&P Global Market Intelligence and Oliver Wyman launched the Climate Credit Analytics to help companies evaluate and assess the impact of climate risk. The new model suite includes coverage of more than 700,000 public and private companies across all non-financial sectors of the global economy and comprises carbon intensive sector specific models, such as airlines, automotive manufacturing, metals & mining, oil & gas and power generation.

Developed through a collaboration between S&P Global Market Intelligence and Oliver Wyman, Climate Credit Analytics helps financial institutions and corporations assess how a transition to a low-carbon economy will impact the creditworthiness of their counterparties and investments. The solution translates climate scenarios into scenario-adjusted financials and scores at the company level by combining S&P Global Market Intelligence’s advanced Credit Analytics risk models and unique industry-specific datasets with Oliver Wyman’s industry-leading climate scenario and stress testing expertise. 

UBS will be the first European-headquartered bank to be leveraging Climate Credit Analytics for transition risk assessment.

“Partnerships such as this one that bring together the best of capabilities across data, methodologies, and analytics are critical for furthering our understanding of climate-related financial risk. Working collaboratively with the industry and expert organizations on climate risk topics is a key part of Our Climate Strategy.”

Liselotte Arni, UBS Portfolio Underwriter for Sustainability and Climate Risk

“The model suite will meet a key need of our clients to understand the impact of climate change on financial exposures, including for climate stress testing and TCFD reporting. Building our analytics with S&P Global’s extensive datasets results in a solution that generates deep insights on climate risk that will strengthen as more data becomes available.”

Ilya Khaykin, Partner and Head of Climate Risk for the Americas at Oliver Wyman

The Climate Credit Analytics model suite will utilize the following datasets from S&P Global:

  • Financials and industry-specific data from S&P Global Market Intelligence, including oil & gas, coal production, airline passenger volumes, electricity capacity;
  • Sophisticated quantitative credit scoring methodologies from Credit Analytics, S&P Global Market Intelligence’s flagship credit and counterparty risk solution;
  • Company-level greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and environmental impact data from S&P Global Trucost.

The Climate Credit Analytics models will continually be refined and adapted to the latest disclosure standards and other market developments.
