In response to growing demand from investors for comprehensive solutions for improving the integration of physical climate risks (PCRs) into investment appraisal practices, CCRI has developed the Physical Climate Risk Assessment Methodology (PCRAM).
PCRAM was born from real life infrastructure projects using real time engineering, climate and financial data. To date, four case studies have been developed, selected to ensure a diversification of asset, location, hazard, and investment type. Additional case studies will follow to inform future versions of PCRAMs.
PCRAM will deliver both the principles and practical support needed, leveraging growing awareness and availability of climate risk data, to infrastructure investment practitioners. It will provide users with guidance on climate risk analytics, engineering, credit quality and the investment appraisal.
About the Coalition for Climate
A United Nations Climate Action Summit (UNCAS) and COP26 flagship initiative, The Coalition for Climate Resilient Investment (CCRI) represents the commitment of the global private financial industry, in partnership with key private and public institutions, to foster the more efficient integration of physical climate risks (PCRs) in investment decision-making.
CCRI aims to create a more resilient global financial industry in which key incentive structures foster an accurate pricing of physical climate risks (PCRs) in investment decision-making, resulting in more resilient economies and communities across the world.
The Coalition brings together private companies, governments and inter-governmental bodies, including many of the world’s leading financial businesses and asset managers that collectively manage more than US$20 trillion in assets.
