Using climate data: a primer to inform the use of climate data in financial institutions, businesses and governments

Source(s):  Four Twenty Seven (427)

This technical brief provides an introduction to climate models and data from a business or government perspective. The brief unpacks the process through which raw climate data is transformed into usable metrics, such as future temperature projections, to help financial, corporate and government users productively incorporate climate-based analytics into their workflows. Beginning by explaining what a global climate model is, the report explains climate data’s format, computational choices to hedge uncertainty, and resources for aggregated climate projections tailored to specific audiences.

Financial institutions, corporations, and governments  increasingly strive to identify and respond to risks driven by physical climate impacts. Understanding the risks posed by climate change for facilities or infrastructure assets starts with conducting a risk assessment, which requires an understanding of the physical impacts of climate change. However, climate data in its raw form is difficult to integrate into enterprise risk management, financial risk modelling processes, and capital planning.
