Alongside climate risk, Urgentem has worked extensively to develop datasets and methodologies to quantify current and potential Avoided Emissions.
Our approach aims to capture the benefit of the development of certain products and services via the quantification of these Avoided Emissions.
While reported avoided emissions data is often opaque and inconsistent, we believe there is substantial value to be gained from modelling and understanding these contributions. Our approach follows best practice frameworks and aims to quantify the benefit of certain products and services so as to appropriately direct capital towards these crucial technologies.
Urgentem’s approach is adapted to the needs of our clients and varies in depth and complexity. Some of the use cases for our clients include TCFD aligned climate reporting, corporate engagement, portfolio strategies, investment decision making and index creation.
