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 is a global practitioner’s guide, developed under the guidance of Mott MacDonald, that supplies the practical tools to identify and assess the resilience of infrastructure assets.
The first of its kind, PCRAM also clearly demonstrates the positive returns from investment in climate resilient assets that are essential to incentivise and scale up private sector engagement.
Designed to enhance the financial valuation of investments, instead of minimising losses, PCRAM uses new methodology that gives infrastructure owners and operators the means to evaluate physical climate risks to infrastructure and analyse their long-term impact on asset performance.
By bringing together climate data providers, resilience practitioners, asset managers and investors to assess and quantify physical climate risks, PCRAM represents a building block for investors to increase the resilience of their own portfolios that is both credible and essential.
