5500+ companies

We provide data to help you navigate the climate risk landscape.

Emissions Data

Our emissions data universe provides a comprehensive time series of the GHG protocol defined Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions of 5,500 global companies with modelled data available for 30,000 + securities, across major investable indices covering both equity, fixed income, and the entire sovereign bond universe.

Our directly analysed dataset of 5,500 companies is compiled with information collected from public sources such as Annual Reports, Financial Reports, Sustainability Reports and information sourced from company websites.

 

Additionally, the complete dataset for 30,000+ securities includes modelled data using Urgentem’s statistical models that are based on the quality assured dataset of directly analysed companies.

Targets Data

Urgentem’s comprehensive emission reduction targets dataset, aligned with the SBTi temperature scoring methodology, incorporates over 9,000 targets, covering over 2,400 companies. Our targets database is one of the most extensive, in terms of coverage.

Carbon emission reduction targets data can help financial institutions better understand how climate transition risk is likely to develop in the future.

 

These emission reduction targets are incorporated into Urgentem’s climate risk metrics, including temperature scores and climate scenario analysis, allowing asset owners and managers to more comprehensively assess the impact of transition risk on portfolios and asset holdings. 

Approach

Our data and methodologies are designed with transparency in mind so that our customers can investigate both the emissions data and the assumptions which inform our methodologies. 

In order to continuously improve our data, we partner with leading universities, think-tanks, NGOs and independent quality assurance panels to ensure that best practices are met.

We engage with companies as part of our data collection regime.

 

Our data team applies a rigorous approach to emissions data collection and quality control checks in accordance with Greenhouse Gas Protocol accounting standards:

GHG Standard for Scope 1 and 2 

GHG Standard for Scope 3

We recommend that companies use independent third-party assurance providers for the measurement and public reporting of emissions.
