Climate risk data for infrastructure assets

Assets’ carbon emissions and transition risk

Carbon emissions are a significant driver of climate change and, hence, central in the evaluation of present and future climate and transition risks. Currently, most countries apply carbon taxes (the main driver for transition risk) to only Scope 1 and 2 emissions.

Accordingly, our climate scenario models focus on Scope 1 and 2 emission estimations.

Assets’ physical risk

Besides transition risks, Scientific Infra & Private Assets estimates the impact of climate change-driven hazards on physical assets. This impact of physical risk is quantified by a damage factor representing the fraction of the asset that would be damaged or destroyed upon the occurrence of a given hazard and a return period indicating the likelihood of such hazard events.

As of January 2024, our calculations focus on two types of climate events, floods and storms, with a return period of 100 years.
