2024 XDI Gross Domestic Climate Risk Report

The XDI Gross Domestic Climate Risk dataset is a direct response to demand from investors for data on sub-sovereign and regional risk. The capability and results provide a new level of detail and sophistication in physical climate risk analysis that can be used to consider the effect of climate change extreme weather on sovereign, sub-sovereign and corporate debt, and builds on growing concern about these issues raised by the global finance sector.

2023 XDI Global Hospital Infrastructure Physical Climate Risk Report

XDI has analysed over 200,000 hospitals around the world for risk of damage from 6 different climate change hazards from 1990 until the end of the century. The risk arising from two different emissions scenarios (i) RCP 8.5 (around 4.3 ºC) and RCP 2.6 (1.8 ºC or under) was compared. The analysis was published ahead of the inaugural Health Day at the COP28 UN Climate Conference.

Alphabet soup: deciphering physical climate risk disclosure

TCFD, ISSB, SEC, EFRAG. For companies navigating their climate risk environment, the initialisations can seem like a bewildering foreign language. What you have to assess, report and disclose, and when, differs depending on your jurisdiction, your size, your industry. So what’s the best approach?

Sovereign bond risk: the climate punch

This week, a triple A-rated federal government was forced to acknowledge the potential risks of climate change on the value of sovereign bonds as it settled a landmark case that alleged it had misled or deceived investors. The Federal Court judge involved said global warming would likely be “a huge drain on (government) resources.”

The unknown unknowns: The crucial missing piece from both climate and nature disclosure rules

Dark matter outweighs visible matter roughly six to one. That makes the universe only slightly more mysterious to us than the biodiversity of our own planet – it’s been estimated that we have likely only encountered and named 20 percent of the species on Earth.

Our latest data release

At XDI, we believe that data needs to be in the hands of those who will use it to drive change, including citizens and civil society organisations. We release information publicly to generate debate and increase understanding.

PUBLIC DATA RELEASE

2024 XDI Asia-Pacific Real Estate Investment Trust Physical Climate Risk Report

The 2024 XDI Asia-Pacific Real Estate Investment Trust Physical Climate Risk Report analyses 2,134 assets held around the world by the largest (by market capitalisation) REITs in Japan, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong - 20 APAC REITs in total. It also ranks these 20 APAC REITS according to their physical climate risk by 2050.

The purpose of the report is to offer a snapshot of the impact of increasing physical risks from climate change on significant REIT portfolios. More broadly, the results can be used to prompt a wider exploration of climate change risks to global realestate investments and responses at an asset, portfolio and city level. The findings underpin the need for continued efforts to avoid a high-emissions future, and the benefits of investment in both low emissions solutions and climate resilience. We hope the information will be used to encourage identification of risk, transparent reporting, action on adaptation and support for emissions reductions.
