To support the financial system integrate climate and environmental analytics, CGFI undertakes a range of applied research projects and cross-cutting supporting activities. Research projects are organised across three themes physical (climate) risk, (climate) transition risk, and nature. These are collaborative projects where CGFI and partners work together to co-create open outputs tailored to a well-defined user need in an area that could lead to significant change in financial practice. Each project will work closely with one or more financial institutions as sponsors to develop tailored answers.
Research projects share a common foundation in being based upon robust asset-level data that can be aggregated up to inform asset-specific, portfolio- level, or macro-financial stability considerations. Together they form a set of building blocks that cover the key risks, use cases, asset classes, and users, covering trillions of assets.
From across these research projects, CGFI will draw out products, learnings, and good practice that will be shared in the form of standards, guidance, data, and analytical products that will be openly available to all. In parallel, CGFI will provide financial institutions with expert advice and training through engagements in industry fora. As well as supporting the climate and environmental science and analytics community in developing new products and services for the finance sector.
