Climate Transition Catalysts
Urgentem is the award-winning, independent provider of transparent carbon emissions data and climate risk analytics to the finance industry.
Our mission is to empower the financial sector to play a leadership role in the transition to a sustainable low carbon economy by providing climate risk data, analytical tools, investment services and products that are science aligned, transparent and collaborative.
Further to this, it is to act as an advocate for responsible investment and to promote a sustainable model for society.
The scientific consensus that we must cut carbon emissions in half by the end of this decade (approximately 7.6% each year) amounts to nothing less than a transformation of the economy, requiring urgent focus and sustained action in every sphere: commerce, politics, and civil society.
If financial markets are to play a leadership role in the transition to a low carbon economy, then data and analytical tools that can be trusted are indispensable.
That’s where we come in.
Our guiding principles
Transparency informs everything we do from how we collect, process, and deliver data through to the design of our methodologies and analytics.
Climate change is a ‘systems problem’ which demands a ‘systems solution.’ We collaborate with leading practitioners and experts from the financial markets, climate advocacy NGOs, climate science, and academia.
Our analytics are supported by our close ties with climate scientists and academics and aligned with the latest IPCC reports, EU Taxonomy and TCFD (Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures) frameworks.
