Corporates: Reporting and disclosures (ISSB)

A lithium mining company was required by its regulator to submit a climate risk disclosures report to inform investor decisions starting in 2024. The report needed to align with ISSB standards. As part of this, it was looking for cost-effective analysis of physical risk for 7 sites, each consisting of a combination of: (i) fully separated individual, built assets (ii) sets of joined or interlinked buildings (iii) storage facilities (iv) access roads and (v) conveyor systems.
Corporates: Due diligence for a renewable energy project
Corporates: Due diligence for a renewable energy project

Corporates: Due diligence for a renewable energy project

The renewables division of a large power company wanted to assess the risk to their wind energy generation facility. In particular, they wanted to understand the risk to each individual turbine and to critical supply chain infrastructure using a consistent, granular and transparent approach. Their focus was to ensure operational continuity over the life of the asset.
Corporates: Due diligence for a brownfield infrastructure project
Corporates: Due diligence for a brownfield infrastructure project

Corporates: Due diligence for a brownfield infrastructure project

A developer needs to undertake a due diligence assessment of a brownfield infrastructure project (port) it is considering purchasing for a development. It wants to know if there are physical climate change risks that may result in unexpected short-term operational expenses or sooner-than-expected capital expenses that could impact the profitability of the development and their ability to service their loan.

Corporates: Adaptation measures to ensure continued productivity

A large supermarket group with assets in multiple countries recently had its operations impacted by two back-to-back extreme weather events. It was dissatisfied with the results from a top-down, postal code level of physical climate risk analysis received from a previous provider as key insights into necessary adaptation actions were limited. The company was looking for a provider who could offer highly granular, asset-level results that informed cost-benefit analyses of various adaptation pathways.

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

The 2024 XDI APAC REIT Physical Climate Risk Report analyses 2,134 assets held by the 20 largest (by market capitalisation) REITs in Japan, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong to provide a snapshot of climate change risks to global real estate investments. It also ranks these 20 REITs - who have a combined market capitalisation value of more than US$142 billion - according to their physical climate risk.

FAQs

Can you produce something that I can use as the physical risk component of a TCFD report?

Yes, we can present resultsets for the physical risk component of a TCFD report. We also produce a TCFD physical risk report.

Is it correct that you use the RCP scenarios (as a general circulation model) and then you downscale them (regionalized) via the CMIP5?

We do not perform our own downscaling of global climate models. Currently, the majority of our models use data from the coordinated regional downscaling experiment (CORDEX). This simulation data uses CMIP5 projection data, which is a global projection based on the RCP scenarios, and downscales them to individual regions such as North America, Europe or Australia. 

Newer hazard models use CMIP6 data, which is the updated version of CMIP5 that uses shared socio-economic pathways (SSPs) as scenarios, which are similar to the RCPs for physical risk (though some additional SSPs exist). There currently is no version of CORDEX that downscales the CMIP6 data set.

What does RCP mean

RCP stands for Representative Concentration Pathway. Scenarios that include time series of emissons and concentrations of the full suite of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and aerosols and chemically active gases, as well as land use/land cover (Moss et al., 2008). The word representative signifies that each RCP provides only one of many possible scenarios that would lead to the specific radiative forcing characteristics. The term pathway emphasises that not only the long-term concentration levels are of interest, but also the trajectory taken over time to reach that outcome (Moss et al., 2010).

How is Hurricane/Tropical Cyclone modelled?

Tropical Cyclone/Hurricane winds are currently modelled using a relationship between their wind speeds and the sea surface temperature, with a degradation in wind speed as you move further inland due to the effects of land surfaces on Tropical Cyclone intensity.

Could you please clarify the definition of Total Insurance Premium?

The Technical Insurance Premium (TIP) is defined as the Annual Average Loss (AAL) per representative property for all hazard impacts combined. The TIP is based on the cost of damage to a property, expressed in current day dollars with no discounting or adjustments for other transaction costs.

Actual insurance premiums may not include the hazards we cover - for example Coastal Inundation and Soil Movement are excluded in some countries.

Do you look at biodiversity?

We do not currently include biodiversity in our analysis, however it is included in some capacity in our two-year roadmap for science and technology developments. If you wish to partner with XDI in developing metrics around biodiversity, please contact us.
