The GRESB/Verisk Maplecroft Climate Risk and Resilience Scorecard was a first attempt at mapping a variety of location-based risk factors onto a portfolio of geo-coded assets. It allowed for a portfolio level understanding of a wide range of risk metrics (E, S, and G), and also matched those against fund level adaptation/management scores. However, it did not allow users to identify and explore their most exposed assets, and was primarily used for high-level conversations and disclosure efforts.
The Climate Risk Platform allows fund managers to explore the physical climate risk exposure data at the asset level and allows for as much analytical flexibility as desired. It can do so for a wide range of backward AND forward-looking climate change risk factors, some of which were not available in the Scorecard. The asset-level specificity can then be aggregated into portfolio-level insights.
