IHS Markit Climate and Carbon service offers expert analysis of climate-related policies, markets, and technology trends to inform and support corporate strategy, investments, decision making and disclosure.
IHS Markit Climate and Carbon service is designed for decision makers needing to deliver on corporate emissions reduction targets and manage the risks that changing climate policies and the low carbon energy transition pose to their business.
Mounting global concern over the impact of climate change, as demonstrated by the more than 190 governments that adopted the 2015 Paris Agreement, has compelled companies to explore different strategies for a lower carbon world. Following the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD), investors are calling for greater transparency in the use of low carbon scenarios and key reporting metrics; making it critical for organizations to understand the risks and opportunities associated with climate change.
The Climate and Carbon analysis unites and enhances research and data from across IHS Markit to deliver an integrated, multi-sector perspective on key topics in the climate debate, including:
- The implementation and implications of the Paris Agreement for energy producers and consumers
- Climate-related financial risk in the energy sector and the recommendations from the Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure
- Emissions drivers and displacement factors in low carbon, 2 degree consistent outlooks
- The role of natural gas in the energy transition
- Existing and proposed national policy initiatives based on markets and mandates, such as carbon pricing, renewable energy standards and efficiency requirements
- The outlook for emissions abatement technologies, including renewables, battery storage, electric vehicles and carbon capture
