    The need to understand the financial impacts of climate change is growing and there is increasing pressure to identify, quantify, and manage this risk. Access to data that can help quantify the future financial and social impacts of these acute and chronic perils becomes critical, as the understanding of climate risk becomes more sophisticated and regulatory and disclosure requirements increase.

    Moody’s provides access to on-demand, location-specific climate risk analytics, at various time intervals, through the end of the of the century. The data measures both damage and costs from six key climate-related perils: flood, heat stress, hurricanes and typhoons, sea level rise, water stress and wildfires. This includes economic impact scoring and associated uncertainty, derived by integrating a deep understanding of the peril and its associated hazard type, with an expert quantification of the vulnerability of different asset types. The data includes results for different levels of damage and associated financial impacts, according to multiple factors, for years 2020, 2030, 2040, 2050, 2075 and 2100, across emissions peak scenarios RCP 4.5 and 8.5 and 19 activity types.

    This information is particularly useful in assessing financial impact of climate change on properties, portfolios of properties, operations, the companies that operate from the location, and the communities around the locations. It’s also valuable for incorporating climate risk into property comparison and selection. Finally, it’s a useful tool for helping to indentify properties for climate, or operational risk mitigation strategies.
