Assessing physical risks of green bonds: a case study

Affirmative Investment Management partnered with South Pole to produce this case study, Assessing Physical Risks of Green Bonds, as part of our continued commitment to pioneering best practice in green bond verification, impact measurement and reporting. This TCFD-aligned physical risk assessment tool is forward-looking and examines three forms of green bond issuers’ exposure to physical climate risks under two scenarios: warming of 2°C and of 4°C.

The Carbon Yield methodology

Issuers can use the Carbon Yield to communicate the climate change mitigation impact of their bonds clearly, succinctly and comparably, to investors.

Investors, in turn, can use the Carbon Yield of each Green Bond they hold to obtain a portfolio-level Carbon Yield, which aggregates the climate change mitigation impact of their investments and can then be included in the relevant impact reporting.
