Financial Risk Analysis for Climate and the Environment (FRACE)
FRACE embeds environmental and climate risk analysis into the financial decision making for property investors. It combines property asset details with finance accounting information in a model that allows the implications of different scenarios related to net zero to be investigated.
FRACE will use advanced accounting techniques to model these risks as discounts on future projected value of assets. This method turns softly qualified environmental risk into hard measurable impacts to a company’s balance sheet and future project revenues and costs.
