A strategic approach to climate risk analysis

Managing business exposure to climate risk is a board level priority. But to build a resilient business, understand opportunities and drive value for the future you need to act beyond simply meeting climate disclosure requirements. 

Regulatory change, stakeholder engagement, and the manifestation of climate risk is driving the need for organisations to embrace forward looking analysis to support them in their strategic decision making. KPMG’s Climate IQ tool has been designed to address these needs and more.

Our solution

KPMG Climate IQ is a multi-industry risk management tool that can run multiple scenarios to address the questions you have around your company’s exposure to climate change. And in doing so help you to formulate strategic decisions in line with your business needs and regulatory requirements.

Climate IQ can assess your exposure to physical risks of climate hazards as well as the economic impacts of the transition to a low-carbon state on a bespoke or an automated basis including:

  • Data simplification and selection of scenarios to assess metrics that matter most to your business
  • Impact of different risks on selected performance indicators
  • Analysis of the rate of change of various risks under different time horizons and severity thresholds
