Aren't transition risk and carbon intensity the same?


No, they are not the same, but carbon intensity can be an indicator for transition risks. Indeed, carbon intensity is the ratio of a company’s carbon emissions to a measure of production (e.g., revenues) or investment (e.g., net asset value). A high carbon intensity indicates a higher reliance of a company on carbon emissions in its operations and, hence, a higher sensitivity to carbon taxes and potential exposure to transition risks.
