oekom research, one of the world’s leading rating agencies in the area of sustainable investments, expands its product range with the oekom Carbon Services.  Hereby, investors can leverage a comprehensive information base to identify and manage both current and future carbon-related risks and performance at issuer and portfolio level.

oekom Carbon Services integrate over 100 cross-industry and industry-specific indicators, which record and evaluate the performance of over 3,700 companies in managing their industry-specific carbon risks, their business activities relating to the fossil fuels coal, oil and natural gas and – via a partnership with South Pole Group, the leading global provider of carbon footprinting data – their carbon footprint. The toolbox provides detailed data feeds, portfolio analyses or rating reports and consists of the following components, which can also be used separately:

– oekom Carbon Risk Rating: a comprehensive assessment of the carbon performance of companies, based on over 100 mainly sector-specific indicators and a carbon risk classification at the industry and sub-industry levels

– oekom Fossil Fuel Screening: enables the differentiated identification of company activities relating to the fossil fuels coal, oil and natural gas

– oekom Carbon Risk Portfolio Analysis: includes a comprehensive analysis of the CO2 risks and the carbon performance of a portfolio and incorporates carbon footprinting data from South Pole Group

In the light of increasing decarbonisation trends investors need reliable data in order to be able to evaluate, understand and manage the climate-related risks of their existing or planned investments. A comprehensive analysis is necessary in order to gain as complete a picture as possible not only of the carbon-related risks but also of the climate-related performance of companies“, explains Robert Haßler, CEO of oekom research.  „This gives rise to a demand among investors for specific information on a wide variety of levels. The oekom Carbon Services offer high quality analyses and data to provide them with the answers they need.
