Citi to utilize the newly launched Climate Credit Analytics model suite.

NEW YORK, Nov. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- S&P Global Market Intelligence and Oliver Wyman announced today a collaboration with Citi to support the financial institution's commitment for a smooth transition to a low-carbon economy. Citi will be utilizing Climate Credit Analytics, a pioneering climate scenario analysis and credit analytics model suite, introduced by S&P Global Market Intelligence and Oliver Wyman at Climate Week NYC 2020.  

Climate Credit Analytics is designed to help financial institutions and corporates assess how a transition to a low-carbon economy will impact the creditworthiness of their counterparties. Its underlying insights combine S&P Global Market Intelligence's advanced Credit Analytics risk models and unique datasets with Oliver Wyman's industry-leading climate scenario and stress testing expertise.

"Climate Credit Analytics aligns with emerging regulatory directives and will help enable the broader industry to better analyze and manage climate risks while deploying capital to underpin long term sustainable growth. Further advancing this technology is common cause and very timely, we are delighted to be working with such capable partners," said Colin Church, Citi's Head of Climate Risk Management.

"This new tool will provide valuable rigor for analyzing our client portfolios under different climate transition risk scenarios, enabling us to build on our prior climate scenario analysis work. Integrating this analysis will contribute to the climate risk pillar of our Sustainable Progress Strategy and our ongoing Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) implementation," said Eliza Eubank, Citi's Head of Environmental and Social Risk Management.

"Climate change is a non-traditional risk, and financial institutions and corporates are working to understand its implications. We have a deep legacy in credit analytics and we are proud to work with Citi, a leader in this area, to collaborate on creating integrated climate and credit-related analytics to navigate the effects of climate risk on the financial markets," said Martina Cheung, S&P Global Market Intelligence's President.

"We are delighted that Citi will be the first bank to utilize Climate Credit Analytics. This unique solution to quantify climate risks is readily customizable, incorporates the NGFS Scenarios, and covers all corporate sectors, including major greenhouse gas emitting sectors. Citi's commitment to environmental finance exemplifies the critical role that financial institutions play in combating climate change," said Oliver Wyman's John Colas, Partner and Vice Chairman, Financial Services Americas.
