Goals and Deliverables
To build the financial case for resilient investments, the ADS has
set a number of key goals and deliverables.
1. PCRAM Guidelines
Integrating physical climate risks in the appraisal of infrastructure assets
2. Resilience Credit Quality Drivers
Guidance to investors on key risk factors regarding credit quality assessments and PCR exposure, in collaboration with S&P Market Intelligence and other CCRI members.
3. CCRI Resilient Investment Principles
Developing a set of principles for the investment community to implement the PCRAM Guidelines
PCRAM delivers both the principles and practical support needed by infrastructure investment practitioners, leveraging growing awareness and availability of climate risk data.
The first version of PCRAM, which aims to assess the baseline resilience of an asset and propose measures for its improvement, has been developed under the guidance of Mott MacDonald with inputs from climate data companies and other participants to the engineering module of this working group. It will be tested and refined by other producers over the coming months. It comprises five stages as explained below.
