ICE offers granular data to support the implementation of climate related regulation and frameworks including Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), Task-force for Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) and UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Climate, ESG and green bond data to support TCFD reporting requirements.
Leverage the UN SDG framework to assist with sustainable investment strategies for municipal bonds.
The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) reporting framework has been adopted or recommended by many regulatory bodies globally as a model for reporting climate-related financial information. ICE’s data and analytics can support TCFD-aligned reporting. ICE’s TCFD Data leverages company level climate transition data and analytics, ESG entity data, as well as green bond data, to provide the information needed for the metrics and targets reporting required in the TCFD framework.
By utilizing multiple primary sources of data and sophisticated modelling, ICE offers company emissions data, foot-printing, net zero analysis, avoided emissions, temperature targets, and emissions projections to 2100.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 interlinked global goals designed to protect the planet, end poverty and support for peace and prosperity for all. To support customers who want to leverage the UN SDG framework to assist with sustainable investment strategies for municipal bonds ICE offers an SDG data set.
By combining our geospatial modeling technology with deep municipal capital markets expertise, ICE can tap into multiple sources of publicly available data to create quantifiable metrics to help clients in their investment decision making. The resulting ICE data items are directly mapped to 45 UN SDG defined targets, which can be used for peer comparison of issuers or issues on a like-for-like basis to assess progress over time to meeting 15 high-level goals.
Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) introduces various disclosure-related requirements for financial market participants and financial advisors at entity, service and product level. The aim of the regulation is to provide more standardization and transparency on sustainability products within the financial markets, preventing greenwashing and ensuring comparability.
To aid in compliance, ICE offers an SFDR Principal Adverse Impact (PAI) solution, which offers continuously updated input values for most of the SFDR indicators. The dataset is taken from our wider ESG Data service that captures over 550 company-reported data points from publicly-available sources and reports as well as ESG risk analysis based on data from our data collaborator, RepRisk. It also leverages our extensive global securities database and established corporate hierarchy information, so that ICE’s SFDR PAI solution allows clients to link equity and fixed income security holdings to the closest disclosing corporate entity.
Climate transition risk has significant implications for the global economy and financial sector, affecting every asset in investment portfolios and bank loan books worldwide.
Data is key to the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) revolution. Access to granular data can help boost transparency for market participants. Unfortunately, 63% of U.S. and European asset managers say a lack of quantitative data inhibits their ESG implementation.
