NEW YORK, June 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- S&P Global Market Intelligence and Oliver Wyman today announced the launch of Climate Credit Analytics to help companies evaluate and assess the impact of climate risk. The new model suite includes coverage of more than 700,000 public and private companies across all non-financial sectors of the global economy and comprises carbon intensive sector specific models, such as airlines, automotive manufacturing, metals & mining, oil & gas and power generation.

Developed through a collaboration between S&P Global Market Intelligence and Oliver Wyman, Climate Credit Analytics helps financial institutions and corporations assess how a transition to a low-carbon economy will impact the creditworthiness of their counterparties and investments.

UBS will be the first European-headquartered bank to be leveraging Climate Credit Analytics for transition risk assessment. "We are pleased to collaborate with Oliver Wyman and S&P on this initiative. Partnerships such as this one that bring together the best of capabilities across data, methodologies, and analytics are critical for furthering our understanding of climate-related financial risk. Working collaboratively with the industry and expert organizations on climate risk topics is a key part of Our Climate Strategy," says Liselotte Arni, UBS Portfolio Underwriter for Sustainability and Climate Risk.

"As businesses continue to assess transition risks, our newly launched models with specialized modeling of high carbon-emitting sectors will provide market participants a holistic approach to assess the potential financial impact of climate related scenarios on their portfolios," said Whit McGraw, Managing Director and Global Head of Credit Risk Solutions at S&P Global Market Intelligence. "Our collaboration with Oliver Wyman integrates the expertise and capabilities of two world class players with a deep legacy in climate risk management, credit risk modeling, and stress testing and we're looking forward to using these models to help the market continue its transition to a low-carbon economy."

"We're excited to be launching Climate Credit Analytics with S&P Global Market Intelligence. The model suite will meet a key need of our clients to understand the impact of climate change on financial exposures, including for climate stress testing and TCFD reporting," said Ilya Khaykin, Partner and Head of Climate Risk for the Americas at Oliver Wyman. "Building our analytics with S&P Global's extensive datasets results in a solution that generates deep insights on climate risk that will strengthen as more data becomes available."
