Get asset-specific physical climate risk exposure data and benchmarks in the GRESB Portal

We’ve just launched a new platform to provide you with physical climate risk exposure data directly in the GRESB Portal. Global geospatial risk provider Munich Re is first on the platform to provide asset-level intelligence across multiple climate scenarios and time frames.

First on the platform is geospatial risk provider Munich Re

The physical impacts of a changing climate pose significant challenges to real assets. The chaotic nature of climatic patterns and increasing extremes — combined with the long lifetimes and limited mobility of real assets — mean that more uncertainty must be taken into account when making investment and development decisions. Understanding physical climate risks, from the asset level up, is crucial to implementing well-informed risk management practices and increasing the resilience of your portfolio.  

Munich Re, one of the world’s leading providers of insurance-related risk solutions, is the first data provider on the platform. Leveraging both extensive hazard databases and forward-looking climate models, Munich Re’s physical risk exposure data ranges from the present to 2100, across three different climate scenarios, at resolutions down to 30m. This flexibility and detail will help platform users to identify which of their assets are most exposed to physical climate risk, allow for long-term planning, and improve investment and development decisions.

The GRESB Climate Risk Platform

The GRESB Climate Risk Platform gives you a clear picture of portfolio exposure to a wide variety of physical climate risks.

This information will help you:

  • Identify which of your individual assets are most exposed 
  • Stress test your portfolio against multiple climate scenarios
  • Plan for the long-term with multiple time horizons
  • Report in line with TCFD recommendations
  • Analyze assets for due diligence purposes

When the 2020 GRESB Assessment results come out in the fall, you will be able to benchmark against peers as well as download custom reports. If you purchase climate risk data now, you’ll have the opportunity to be part of our Climate Risk Industry Working Group this summer to inform the additional analytics that will be available.

The climate risk data is available for all real estate portfolios, including portfolios that do not participate in the GRESB Real Estate Assessment. Login to the Portal to view the climate risk data.
